Are smart labels just a trend?

In pharmaceutical packaging the interest in smart packaging solutions is growing fast.

Growing challenges for pharmaceutical packaging

Today, pharmaceutical packaging has to fulfill more and more tasks that go far beyond simply storing and protecting a drug:
Anti-counterfeiting, track & trace, grey and black market identification, cold chain control, authenticity protection, end user safety, information and engagement and, of course, all regulatory requirements.

For example, counterfeiting of pharmaceutical products has reached alarming levels.
That’s why it has become a legal requirement to label each package/unit with a unique number. This enables traceability throughout the supply chain.  Only innovative, intelligent packaging solutions with codes, databases and clever software can do this.

Now, in this case using such smart solutions has become a necessity and not just an optional trend.

Smart packaging solutions

Smart packaging is a hot topic in pharmaceutical packaging. That is why there are already countless solutions on the market.
Finding the one, that best fits your needs, is not an easy task.

And you need to act fast!

Technology and chemistry researchers are constantly developing new, improved solutions. If you choose a brand new solution today, and roll-it out in 3 years, it might already be outdated. That’s why state of the art pharmaceutical packaging is an ongoing process rather than a one-time project.

Where to find the best solution?

It is no surprise that trade events and publications for pharmaceutical packaging have already turned the spotlights on smart packaging solutions.
But also pharma brands and related industries are focusing more and more on active and intelligent packaging.

So obviously they are a good starting point for getting “smart” on smart packaging.
Recommendable sources are dedicated (virtual) conferences such as the AIPIA.
Or trade magazines, e.g. Chemistry Today.
