Adents (adents.com), a provider of versatile and easily deployable serialization and track-and-trace software solutions, will demonstrate its Seriza serialization software solution at Pack Expo East at Booth #1147, February 27-March 1 in Philadelphia. Incorporating various subsets of Adents’ groundbreaking track & trace platform, the fully configurable, standardized solution provides unprecedented levels of flexibility and scalability for pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers.
Given the looming serialization regulatory deadline, however, perhaps Seriza’s most important benefits are its speed to deployment and ease of integration. Though full implementation of 2013’s Drug Supply Chain Security Act will comes in phases, the next milestone for manufacturers is November 27, 2017, by which date pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to print a unique product identification code on all Rx units of sale and homogenous cases distributed domestically.
Adents Seriza comprises two primary tools. At the site level, Adents Supervisor manages and distributes serialized codes. Deployed on a central server at each production site, the module is the key central component of Adents’ serialization and aggregation suite. All line configurations are handled at the site level, leading to quicker implementation and scalability while greatly reducing the effort to revalidate lines when changes are made.
At the line level, Adents Pilot drives the printing of unit codes and controls their conformity. The solution directs printing and vision systems, and manages communication with line equipment to deliver a customer’s choice of item-level serialization, item-to-bundle aggregation, bundle-to-case aggregation, or case-to-pallet aggregation.
