Recipharm completes Korean serialisation project for Abbott as the CDMO continues international roll out

Recipharm, the leading contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO), is pleased to announce further serialisation success with the completion of a complex serialisation project for Korea for one of its leading customers; Abbott. The initiative, which commenced in April 2014, is now completed.

The CDMO met the precise customer and market requirement to produce a data matrix code, including serial number, with full compliance with complex regulations, similar to foreseen EU rules.

Recipharm applied its internationally adaptable solution, designed to achieve full compliance with country specific regulations, to a blister packaging line; with the need differing markedly from Chinese serialisation. Validation batches are now manufactured released and planned to be shipped to Korea mid-March 2015.

Recipharm applied its successful methodology to the project initiated for the top ten pharmaceutical customer. From the outset, integration formed a key tenet with the establishment of joint company strategic teams and the sharing of critical information. Costs were kept to a minimum and full implementation achieved.

Stephane Guisado, General Manager at Recipharm in Fontaine commented: "We are delighted with the success of this serialisation project for the Korean market carried out for Abbott, a long standing pharma partner of ours. Once again, our serialisation platform solution has proved the extent of its adaptability and resourcefulness for differing geographic and multi-country regulatory requirements. Indeed, in this case, it ensured that our customer complied in full with the relevant serialisation regulations set down by Korea."

He continued: "We were pleased to have received such strong thanks and recognition from the Abbott project team for the work that we staged on this project. We look forward to rolling out further projects during 2015."
