The countdown is on: On February 9, 2019, EU Directive 2011/62/EU will come into effect. It aims to stop illegal trade in falsified medicines. From then onwards, pharmaceutical manufacturers have to provide secondary packaging of all medicines placed on the market with an individual serial number as well as an anti-tampering device to ensure the integrity of the medicinal packaging: a challenge that should not be underestimated and demands customized and efficient solutions. At Pharmapack in Paris on February 7 and 8, 2018, Schreiner MediPharm will present its extensive portfolio of innovative analog and digital security solutions for reliable counterfeiting and tampering protection in Hall 7.1, Booth J48. The highlight of the product lineup will be the BitSecure copy detection pattern which enables easy, digital authentication of pharmaceutical packaging using a smartphone app.
