E-Pedigree, Serialization, French coding! Many challenges – One solution!

Seidenader T&TSolutions, reliable traceability of pharmaceutical products – a track& trace system at your fingertips at Achema 2009

Within the nex few year, several countries like Turkey, France or California will enforce laws regulating the unique identification of the smallest saleable unit of drugs. The traceability of the complete supply chain will enhance the safety of products and protect against counterfeiting and fraud – and the health of the patients. The EU is pushing for a standard regulation within the member states.

Seidenader Vision GmbH, the specialist for vision solutions and customized inspection applications in the Seidenader Group, has developed a modular track & trace system adaptable to the individual needs of the customers. At the same time it is fully compliant with worldwide legislations regulating track & trace concepts.

Until now, Seidenader have successfully sold more than 55 Seidenader T&TSolutions to internationally operating companies in Turkey, France, Germany and USA.

Seidenader T&TSolutions combine database management, coding system, code reading technology and material handling systems, based on industrial standards.

The smallest saleable units are identified with unique, according to respective requirements either randomized or consecutive, serial numbers (2D matrix, barcode, RFID). A camera system reads and verifies the printed code that is then transmitted to a data base system for archiving. The next module bundles multiple units. Therefore, the individual codes of these units are read, registered in the data base and linked with the newly generated and verified code of the superior packaging unit. A “parent/child relationship” has been created to trace back the smallest unit in every bundle. This process continues in the following levels up to the palletizer. By this means, an electronic product pedigree (e-pedigree) of each saleable unit will be provided, including those units lost, damaged or replaced within the packaging process.

Seidenader T&TSolutions can be integrated with new packaging lines or as retrofit into existing lines. Flexible rework strategies and various interfaces to e.g. ERP and MES systems allow an optimal integration in different production and IT-environments.

At their booth in hall 3.1, K4-K8, Seidenader show a track and trace solution from automatic serialisation of the smallest saleable unit over manual identification of the bundle to manual shipping case labeling, as sold already several times. Other equipment of Seidenader T&TSolutions will be presented by partners, e.g. in automatic packaging lines.
