On display at booth N-219, Microsoft and Adents team up to create augmented reality glasses as a control tool for serialized pharma products.

While augmented reality (AR) products have industrial manufacturing applications, the technology is not as widespread in pharma. But Adents is throwing its hat into the ring, debuting the new Microsoft HoloLens this week at its booth N-219.

HoloLens is the first set of AR smart glasses for the pharma industry that, when used with Adents Prodigi, “puts comprehensive cloud serialization and traceability right in front of its users’ eyes. Literally.”

Users can scan datamatrixes with the glasses for immediate access to Prodigi’s cloud-based search tool and results, eliminating the need for a computer/on-screen dashboard. The smart glasses aim to streamline operations—for example, a warehouse operator can control products, bundles or pallets in an easy, user-friendly fashion.

By tying into Adents Prodigi, the glasses add another level of functionality to the cloud-based traceability system that manages regulatory requirements and allows pharma companies, CMOs and wholesalers add business value to the compliance issue.

Visitors can test the HoloLens at ongoing demos this week at N-219.
