How to Combine Serialisation and Late Stage Customisation

Serialisation of prescription medicines will become
mandatory in the EU on February 9, 2019, resulting in

customisation is getting increasingly important due to
continuously decreasing batch sizes. Helmut Schneider,

Solutions division, analyses the different steps to consider
where in the production process to most sensibly perform
serialisation. The solution chosen by the pharmaceutical
company will depend on the existing infrastructure as well
as several other factors.
