Systech/Inno4Life: Integrated Pharmaceutical Serialization

ISU3 Item Serialization Unit 3 is launched for automated pharmaceutical carton packaging lines to meet the European Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).

Systech International, provider of pharmaceutical serialization technology, and Inno4Life, developer of life science equipment, are partnering to help companies meet pharmaceutical regulatory compliance challenges.

Inno4Life is launching the ISU3 Item Serialisation Unit 3, the hardware component of Systech UniSolve™. With the ISU3, pharmaceutical cartons can be supplied manually to the standalone unit or automatically when the unit is integrated in an automated packaging line. The two-side option feature for printing, verifying, and tamper-evident labelling sets this unit apart, providing a small footprint and maximum speed of 400 items/min.

Both companies will begin taking orders for the ISU3 and UniSolve beginning Oct. 1, 2017. 

The machine introduction is prompted by customer demand to meet FMD deadlines. European governments are enacting complex regulations that place substantial pressure on pharmaceutical manufacturers.

The serialization of licensed drug products will be a legal requirement for companies in the EU starting in 2019, according to Giel van Veen, Business Development Director at Inno4Life.
