REA JET will exhibit at Pharma EXPO 2016 in Chicago next month, so we’re excited to share with those who plan to attend what you can expect regarding trends in the pharmaceutical industry.
Some of the hurdles addressed include drug counterfeiting, user-friendly packaging, reduced expenses and waste, accuracy-enhancing dosing, and increasing patient safety and efficiency, according to a press release.
Some of the topics and solutions you can expect on the show floor include
Solutions for counterfeiting, track and trace technology, and adding to supply chain security through the use of 1D barcoding, RFID tags, temperature sensors, and smart inks – all of which are technologies that have become more popular according to a PMMI study. Be “in the know” before you go to make the most of your time on the floor!
Medication packaging for an aging population that is safe and convenient. While millennials are the largest sector of the population, baby boomers are at a larger number than ever before and growing. Addressing issues such as easy-to-open medications for seniors that are still tamper-proof, simple delivery so that seniors can easily comply with instructions for the medications they take, and technologies in manufacturing and filling that are improved (e.g. dosing accuracy, advanced tablet handling equipment, re-filled syringes, etc.).
Single-use technologies that reduce carbon. Often produced in traditional stainless steel equipment, these technologies can limit contamination risks, recycle energy from natural gas source material, reduce costs for manufacturers, minimize energy requirements and capital costs, and more. Single-use technologies are effective when paired with continuous manufacturing practices in terms of detecting issues or abnormalities, improving biotherapies’ quality, and enhanced overall efficiency.
Pack EXPO and Pharma EXPO will be located together, so you can expect to see more than 2,500 exhibitors providing solutions in robotics and controls, track-and-trace, anti-counterfeiting, labeling, processing, validation, cleaning and sanitation, commissioning and qualification, and more! Be sure to come by and visit REA JET from Nov. 6-9 at Pharma booth #W944!
