The Romaco Group has introduced new anti-counterfeit packaging technology for pharmaceutical products. The system, developed exclusively with partner company NANO 4 U, integrates into the Romaco Noack Blister Line 960.
According to the company, the new technology is based on a banknote authentication system and can be integrated into all blister machines equipped with coding stations. The blister packs can be coded with overt and/or covert security features. The new system can create visible holograms with company logos as well as combinations of letters and digits to confirm authenticity of the blister packs. Invisible codes—which can be verified quickly and easily with a laser pointer—can also be incorporated into the hologram, the company added.
Integrating the hologram stamp into the coding station of the blister machine is a simple process and does not affect production speed, said the Romaco Group.
According to the German company, the new system meets the EU Falsified Medicine Directive 2011/62/EU.
