For manufacturers of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, stringent track and trace requirements call for innovative packaging, coding, marking and handling technologies from the Matthews Automation Solutions’ brands.
Matthews… Your Prescription for Traceability Solutions.
Primary, secondary and tertiary package marking and coding solutions—including printing of barcodes, lot numbers, batch codes, item numbers, and time and date stamps to support serialization, from unit- to case-level—are provided by Matthews Marking Systems.
During manufacturing, distribution and order fulfillment, systems from Lightning Pick support light-directed, error-proof picking of both full cases and broken-case piece-picks (eaches) by guiding operators to the correct items and quantities required. Lightning Pick’s pick-to-light solution and software complies with pedigree laws—providing lot number and/or serial number tracking at the product location level—prompting an operator to scan a picked product for additional quality assurance. For pharmaceutical integrators creating their own light-directed picking applications, including pick-to-light and put-to-light applications, Lightning Pick provides hardware and developer kits.
Automated material movement is backed by integrated controls and software from Pyramid to direct receiving, putaway, picking, conveyance, sortation, document insertion, parcel labeling and shipping to drug stores, pharmacies and direct-to-consumer mail-order refill services.
