Almac partnered with Optel Vision to provide a line-level solution (hardware and software) integrated with Almac’s proprietary level three, site-level software.

Almac Group, a global contract development and manufacturing organization, announced on April 25, 2016 its plans to expand serialization capabilities to include its United States commercial packaging facility in Audubon, PA. Building upon Almac’s in-house proprietary serialization/track-and-trace solution developed at its United Kingdom headquarters, this technology expansion will address FDA regulations, meeting the requirements outlined in the Drug Quality and Security Act, the company said in a press announcement. Almac partnered with Optel Vision to provide a line-level solution (hardware and software) integrated with Almac’s proprietary level three, site-level software. This new serialization solution is a high-spec standalone line that prints, verifies, and aggregates saleable packs to the pallet with reporting functionality.

“We knew Almac had its own in-house solution for the UK and for the first Almac serialization project in the US, we combined the knowledge of both companies to design a solution that meets Almac quality standards as well as the demand from global markets using the Optel Vision hardware and software solutions, said Yvon Lemay, Optel Vision project manager. “The system is now operational and can be easily scalable for future needs.”
