Atlantic Zeiser presents innovative software: Secure defense against pharmaceutical falsification

MEDTRACKER provides pharmaceutical authentication for regulatory compliance and patient safety.

The Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) of November 2013 clearly illustrates that the federal government is taking the uniform regulation of drug authentication seriously. Atlantic Zeiser presents an efficient and easy-to-implement software solution against pharmaceutical falsification at the Interphex 2014 fair (booth 1111). MedTracker is a flexible solution for generating, printing, aggregating and tracking codes for all international regulations – and includes a full track & trace capability for e-pedigree applications. As a leading supplier of sophisticated individualization and track & trace systems, Atlantic Zeiser has developed the software architecture to be fully compatible with existing third-party hardware. Thanks to an extensive interface library, MedTracker can be integrated into all conventional business and process management solutions.

Simple code aggregation

The modular design allows the implementation of track & trace for parts of a line, entire lines, production facilities or whole companies. Unlike conventional software, MedTracker is a generic database application in which all functionalities are dynamically programmed. Not only can MedTracker collect and aggregate data on the usual three tiers of the packaging hierarchy (individual product, secondary packaging and pallet), but the customer can also simply insert any number of additional tiers, such as bundles, containers etc. MedTracker integrates the new processes of serialization and verification into users’ existing automated workflows. This functionality can be combined with manual handling routines, including aggregation and re-aggregation.

Proven high-security architecture

To ensure the highest standards of data security, Atlantic Zeiser draws on its expertise. The company has been integrating many of the software’s fundamental components for more than ten years in security-conscious industrial sectors. The software embraces effective, continuously refined defense measures against criminal hacking. In addition, data are exchanged between production operations and facilities in an encrypted format which has not been standard practice in the pharmaceutical segment thus far. All product and logistic information is collected and stored for each individual medicine package. Time stamps prevent tampering with information.

Thanks to its real-time capability, MedTracker also complies with the extremely short response times demanded by packaging lines, which sets it apart from classic database applications. Real-time access by mobile readers is also possible – Atlantic Zeiser has already launched code reading apps for Android and iOS.

Experienced track & trace specialist

Atlantic Zeiser ranks among the leading suppliers of sophisticated individualization and track & trace systems, which efficiently and seamlessly monitor product movements, securely verify authenticity, and reliably protect against counterfeiters. Specifically for the pharmaceutical sector, the company develops systems to facilitate the reliable, flexible, low-cost and fast application of unique security features to individual and mass products. Atlantic Zeiser’s track & trace systems are based on intelligent and fully compatible software architecture that can be integrated with the latest machine and printing technologies. Innovative digital printing uses drop-on-demand technology to create superior-quality coding and serializing solutions.

Atlantic Zeiser USA is located in West Caldwell, New Jersey.
