Coding, Labelling, and Inspection for Pharmaceutical

Today’s pharmaceutical processing businesses need to take advantage of innovative coding and marking for counterfeit protection, traceability and branding. 

With deep industry experience, Matthews understands your unique challenges and needs. We've created specific product identification and inspection solutions designed to help businesses like yours reduce the risks, while working more productively and profitably.

Protect against pharmaceutical counterfeiters

In the pharmaceutical industry, serialisation has become a must-have to combat counterfeiters. Over the years, counterfeit pharmaceutical products have posed an increasing risk to patient safety, as well as resulting in lost revenue and brand damage for manufacturers. 

Matthews helps you introduce unique identification for each and every pack of pharmaceuticals, so you can tighten the security of the supply chain and protect against counterfeiters. The result is significantly improved patient safety and brand integrity. 

Product identification you can count on

Your codes need to be highly readable and indelible in order to ensure product traceability and customer/patient safety. Matthews provides a range of coders to meet your unique coding needs, including 2D coding. 

Discover the benefits of our Continuous Inkjet Printers (CIJ), well suited to printing batch codes, date codes and best-before dates onto packaging. Both Laser coders and CIJ printers can be used to mark glass bottles. 

Apply pharmaceutical labels efficiently and cost-effectively. Our range of Label Printer Applicators (LPA) and Label Applicators (LA) makes it easy to get the right label onto the right product. 

Ensure Product Quality

Our vision inspection technology can be used to check every product before it gets shipped out to ensure it meets the quality specifications to avoid any recalls.

Whatever your pharmaceutical business needs, Matthews can provide a tailored solution to suit you. Talk to or experts to find out how.
