A safeguard against drug counterfeiting
Reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) show that approximately 10 % of all drugs sold worldwide could be counterfeits. These are oftentimes drugs with wrong dosages, incorrect or absent active ingredients.
Ampoules Anti-Counterfeiting (AC) provide a vital tool for pharmaceutical companies to combat the potential threats and costs of drug counterfeiting, while also protecting patient health.
During the manufacturing process, the ampoule is printed with an ink containing light-emitting particles in the shape of identification rings, OPC dots, and/or printed text. Visible only with a special reader, these markings help to retain the drug’s authenticity.
Crucial protection for delicate medicines
Ampoules AC have a wide spectrum of applications within the healtcare industry:
- Palliative care to store painkillers.
- Anesthetics for short healtcare procedures.
- Medicines for reproductive health and perinatal care.
For the protection of intellectual property
The special ink used in the identification rings, OPC dots, and labelled text of Ampoules AC easily establishes the origin of valuable pharmaceutical products.
Ampoules AC ensure the protection of intellectual property and create a unique proof of authenticity.
By preventing drug tainting, Ampoules AC guarantee the protection of reputation and revenue for pharmaceutical companies.
