Systech International, a global leader in brand protection technologies, announces the addition of Inno4Life, an internationally recognized Original Equipment Manufacturer in Life Science equipment solutions, to its UnisolveTM partner program. As such, Inno4Life will now offer UniSolve serialization software as an integrated turnkey solution to the Pharma and Life Science markets.
The partnership is prompted by customer demand to meet looming deadlines. European governments are enacting complex regulations that will put substantial pressure on pharmaceutical manufacturers. In fact, serialization regulatory deadlines have either passed or are approaching in fourof the top five pharmaceutical markets in the world with more being established each year.
Systech is a global leader in serialization, track-and-trace, authentication, and engagement.
The companies have a history of success working together to support the packaging and serialization needs of a variety of clients in the global biotech and pharmaceutical spaces. To assist these clients to rapidly respond to new regulatory deadlines, Inno4Life serialization and aggregation equipment is now available with pre-configured Systech's UniSolve serialization software.
Inno4Life will also be a 'resident partner' in Systech's training and demonstration facility at its European headquarters in Brussels. This allows Systech's regional clientele to participate in live training and active demonstrations showcasing UniSolve's seamless integration with Inno4Life's packaging hardware.
"The pharmaceutical industry is facing a tremendous challenge to quickly comply with the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) plans to implement packaging safety features as part of the Falsified Medicines Directive (Directive 2011/62/EU) (FMD), adopted in July of 2011," explains Manfred Voglmaier, senior director, Europe, Systech International.
"They need to ramp up now if they are to meet the requirement for serialization of licensed drug products which will be a legal requirement for companies in the EU starting in 2019."
"We're very pleased with this partnership. Inno4Life's in-depth knowledge of automated integration equipment in the pharmaceutical industry complements the position of Systech as a global market leader in serialization software systems," says Johan Klootwijk, managing director, Inno4Life.
