Counterfeit pharmaceutical products are some of the greatest challenges for consumer protection. Therefore, the legislator finds state of the art safety features, first and foremost by way of placing counterfeit-proof markings on the packaging, to be of the utmost importance. As a result of this, manufacturers must be able to print on graphics, characters and texts in high and durable quality. The high-performance and flexible mobile inkjet printers from the jetStamp® product family of marking specialist REINER enable the pharmaceutical industry to make use of perfect marking solutions.
Marking that meets all legal requirements
The new, stricter anti-counterfeiting guidelines from February 2019 require, among other things, integration of a 2D barcode. For preparations intended for the German market, these include a serial number and a product code with integrated central pharmaceutical number, batch number and expiration date. The same information must be applied in plain text as well. The REINER jetStamp® product family offers a diverse imprint range with freely adjustable consecutive 1 D, 2 D, EAN and GTIN bar codes, texts, numbers or graphics. The desired imprints can be created by default in the enclosed "PCset graphic" software and transferred to the marking unit by USB, Bluetooth or MicroSD card.
Efficient and safe
Another important aspect is efficiency in application and durability of the product marking. REINER marking units have long battery lives, economic ink consumption, protection from ink drying out, and use MP ink for printing on paper, cardboard, wood, metal and plastics – durably and without smearing. Their mobility makes it possible to use the inkjet printers in the production chain wherever they are needed. Conversion work is not necessary. This makes the REINER marking devices perfect for use in the pharmaceutical industry.
