Press Release | Vetter Pharma International GmbH
OCTOBER 13, 2014
Ravensburg, Germany: – Leading contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) Vetter Pharma International is to host a free webinar on the use of serialization as an effective way to combat counterfeiting.
The event is being held as regulatory agencies worldwide step up their efforts to identify and implementing new methods to thwart prescription drug counterfeiting of ethical and prescription drugs.
Key serialization questions
The webcast will answer the key questions on the use of serialization, including:
- What are the latest requirements and developments in the market?
- What are the drivers of serialization and where it’s going within the biopharmaceutical industry?
- What is required to implement serialization successfully?
- How can a CDMO meet changes in customer requirements and updates in regulatory standards during a project run?
- What are the best ways to integrate serialization equipment components into existing packaging lines?
Anti-counterfeiting fight back
The webinar will be hosted by two of the company’s experts, Product and Service Manager Daniela Guttmann and Alexander Ulbrich, Serialization Project Manager (IT) for Vetter.
“Even without current regulatory moves, the industry has become increasingly concerned about the damage being done by increased counterfeiting and determined to fight back,” she noted.
“Serialization provides a primary weapon against the pirates and seems to revolutionize manufacturing and packaging processes over the next couple of years,” said Daniela.
