Serialisation and tractability in pharmaceuticals



 Serialisation and tractability in pharmaceuticals


Pharmaceutical serialisation is the tracking and tracing of the passage of prescription drugs through the supply chain from manufacturing to dispensing.By implementing serialisation counterfeiting in pharmaceuticals can be reduced. 

Serialisation could potentially identify every product by a unique serial number (in the form of a two-dimensional code known as a data matrix) in addition to the origin,shelf life and batch number for that product. This could potentially allow the products life cycle to be traced from production,through distribution and finally to the patient.
