Griffin-Rutgers labeling and coding systems are well suited for the pharmaceutical industry. Manufacturers and packagers of pharmaceutical products understand that a product identification system for pharmaceutical packaging requires two separate, but highly integrated components. It is mandatory to have a coding/labeling system that can consistently print in high resolution and apply labels at the required speed with a high degree of accuracy.
Some of these types of packaging can be: pharma blister packs, pharma/medical device cartons, dietary supplements pouches, nutraceutical bottles, along with cannabis tins. Staying current on the regulations in the industry is challenging, but having a printing and labeling system in place that helps adhere to them is key to any operation.
At Griffin-Rutgers we understand the never-ending demand for consistent, accurate labeling, along with the need for print clarity and product tracking mechanisms throughout the packaging and distribution chain. As you consider the purchase, we can help you determine the best product identification (labeling and coding) system for your unique needs. Contact the professionals at Griffin-Rutgers, and we will put our experience to work to select the exact system for you.
