Title: METHOD OF TRACKING AND TRACING SYRINGES IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
Abstract:
A tracking and tracing method is provided during the life of the pharmaceutical container to improve the safety and efficacy of the pharmaceutical container and its content. An identification code is added to the surface of the pharmaceutical container, which is not visible under ambient light. The identification code contains encrypted information regarding temporal and physical properties of the pharmaceutical container and pharmaceutical fluid content. At multiple stages during the life of the pharmaceutical container the identification code is detected with an optical detection method. Given the material of the identification code, the identification code is only visible by using specific optical detection methods.
