Avery Dennison at Pharmapack in Paris on 24-25 January 2024 plans to show how advanced label materials and RFID solutions are enabling unit-level traceability across the pharmaceutical supply chain – helping to boost patient safety, deliver unprecedented inventory accuracy, and reduce waste. Avery Dennison with be in Stand B98 at Pharmapack.

Launched in 1997, Pharmapack is the leading European event for pharmaceutical packaging, drug delivery, medical devices, and machinery. At the event, Avery Dennison will outline the latest labeling solutions that enhance patient compliance, many of which feature digital identification technologies such as RFID (radio frequency identification) and NFC (near field communication) which are transforming the pharmaceutical industry.

Workshop on RFID-enabled Pre-Fillable Syringes

Products tagged in this way can offer several advantages. For example, this technology can help reduce human error to prevent medication mix-ups, enable faster stock checks, and improve inventory management – reducing error rates to near zero. Attendees are invited to find out more at an Avery Dennison and Becton Dickinson hosted workshop entitled – ‘Transforming Pharma Fill/Finish Processes with RFID-enabled Pre-Fillable Syringes’ which takes place on 24 January 2024 at 14:30 to 15:10 CET at Pharmapack in Rooms 725 & 726.

Ewa Weglinska at Avery Dennison LPM, EMENA comments, “The pharmaceutical sector is of vital importance to all of us and our solutions play a key role in helping to keep patients safe and ensure optimized packaging and labeling processes. RFID technology can bring endless benefits to pharma. Supply chain transparency and inventory management help with waste reduction whilst NFC helps greatly with brand protection and patient compliance. In combination with our label materials that are tested and proven to perform in typical pharma applications we are bringing unique solutions to the market. These are vital factors that enhance patient safety and we look forward to showcasing these technologies at Pharmapack.”
