Romaco Group: Anti-counterfeit blister packs

Anti-counterfeit blister packs protect pharmaceutical products with overt and covert security features.

The Romaco Group introduces its new anti-counterfeit system developed exclusively with its partner company NANO 4 U and integrated into the Romaco Noack blister line 960. The system is suitable for pharmaceutical products and meets the EU Falsified Medicine Directive 2011/62/EU.

The new technology for anti-counterfeit blister packs is based on a banknote authentication system. To protect the primary packaging of pharmaceutical solids, the system can be integrated into all blister machines equipped with coding stations. An individual hologram stamp gives a unique indication of originality—in line and without the use of additional materials. The individual blister packs are coded with overt and/or covert security features. Visible holograms with company logos as well as combinations of letters and digits instantly identify the blister packs as originals. Invisible codes that can be verified quickly and easily can also be incorporated into the hologram. A simple laser pointer is all that is needed for verification of a hidden logo or Data Matrix code.

The use of anti-counterfeit and high-precision stamps makes this technology a serious deterrent to counterfeiters. Integrating the hologram stamp into the coding station of a Romaco Noack blister machine is simple: The security features are applied using a heated coding tool without affecting production speed.
