Lot code and expiration date verification
The FDA has changed several mandates and regulations that significantly impact the pharmaceutical industry. That which involves Cognex, states that all unit doses need to be individually packaged with a barcode and expiration date. In order to meet this standard, a manufacturing company, Dey, L.P., sought help from Sigpack Systems, AG, to aid them in finding more technologically advanced methods to help. They needed a high-speed line that would not decrease speed or productivity. Cognex VisionPro™ vision software was able to provide them with a solution for verifying lot codes and expiration dates on cases that contain 25, 30 or 60 vials each.
