Efficient and safe mobile marking in the pharmaceutical and medical industries

Everything must be just right with something has important as medicines. The number of specifications and laws at every stage of the process, from production to correct marking of the finished product is nearly unparalleled. Few other industries demand a similarly high quality standard and conscientious procedure in all work steps as are required for medicines and medical equipment.

Everyone who works here bears great responsibility for their work. Mistakes must be avoided under all circumstances, since they may have severe consequences for consumers.
Correct and defect-free marking of products is an important aspect in this context. Patients need to know what they are taking, pharmacists are obligated to mark their medicines, and scientists want to keep a good overview in their laboratories.

Interesting information about the pharmaceutical and medical industries

Marking of medicines: Why are REINER® marking devices particularly good for the pharmaceutical industry?

Marking defects have severe consequences as in pharmaceuticals. Even the smallest deviations in dosage or quality of certain substances may change the effect of a drug and have the potential to cause severe damage to the user. This shows that there are good health reasons for this sector to be subject to particularly strict monitoring in Germany and world-wide.

Therefore, the legislator has issued dedicated specifications, among other things for marking of pharmaceuticals. In addition to the expiration date, drugs are marked with a batch designation. A batch is produced as a single unit, and all products from it have precisely the same characteristics. If one of these products is defective, the other products from the batch will likely have the same defect. marking medicines with the batch designation enables manufacturers to uniquely identify the affected products in case of a recall campaign. They can then take them off the market and go looking for the cause of the defect.

The pharmaceutical industry uses marking systems installed firmly along the conveyor belt in serial production. How then can small batches and individual preparations be marked as required by the law and with economic efficiency? The mobile REINER® marking systems have proven their worth as batch number printers. They are a flexible and cost-efficient option for marking drugs. No matter the material used, our handy devices will let you mark packaging materials of all kinds very quickly and reliably with any texts, 1D/2D codes or graphics.
Do you want to print numbers and dates? We recommend using the mobile marking device jetStamp® 990.
The mobile jetStamp® graphic 970 and jetStamp® 1025 inkjet printers are optimal for imprints with graphics, barcodes or DataMatrix codes.

Laboratories: Marking in research, development, or quality management

Laboratory work is exciting! New findings regarding nature, biology and, last but not least, the human body are discovered daily in laboratories all over the world. This is often connected to immense benefits for medicine. The requirements to the marking procedure are clear: it must be reliable and clean, but also quick and easy to prevent impairment of the work process.

Sterile work is particularly important in the laboratory. Often, it is not just a matter of being sterile or not. The date and type of sterilisation are relevant as well. There are different symbols that show whether an object has been sterilised with ethylene oxide or radiation, for example. Other icons represent information such as "manufacturer", "manufacturing date" or "temperature limit". The question then is one of how to quickly and reliably apply the many different symbols to the respective object.

Laboratory labels are common. Various labels may be created for many different uses. They are a diverse option for marking, but may run out at the least opportune moment. At other times, labels of a specific type may suffer a shortage. It is also important that the markings will not come off even in detrimental conditions.

The solution is simply marking the respective objects directly. The mobile jetStamp® 1025 and jetStamp® graphic 970 marking devices by REINER® render the material to be marked irrelevant. Plastic containers can be marked just as easily as paper-based packaging and glass elements. Choose industrial marking technology by REINER® and bring easy and flexible labelling to your laboratory. The matching marking devices for smear-resistant printing of symbols, barcodes and QR codes are the jetStamp® graphic 970 and the jetStamp® 1025.

Pharmacies: How can REINER® marking devices make the everyday work of pharmacists easier?

In contrast to the mass production of many remedies, pharmacies often produce individual products manually. Many different substances are kept in store in order to be able to mix the required medicine on call at any time. Medicinal tea blends, for example, are generally only produced in small batches. The very small batch sizes may make marking with dynamic data, like the expiration date, difficult.
The handheld jetStamp® 990 inkjet printers by REINER® are perfect for labelling such small batches and individual productions. Batch designations and expiration dates can be customised and printed directly onto the product. Their user-friendly handling makes REINER® marking devices the ideal partners for the pharmacy as well.
