Same as manufacturing industry today, the medical industry – whether referring to clinical diagnostics, medical device manufacturing or the production and packaging of pharmaceuticals – is facing the challenges of tighter regulation, and the trend of increased automation, particularly in laboratory.
Both challenges are primarily safety-driven and sharing the same goal of helping patients to get faster and more accurate diagnoses. To achieve this, Traceability is the primary vehicle for the success.
To address these challenges, OMRON offers a robust traceability solution for inspecting, aggregating, managing and exchanging serialised data in the factory internal packaging process.
By placing a serialized code on each product package, manufacturers can ensure the authenticity of products and provide all the necessary assurances to their customers. It helps manufacturers to meet labelling requirements, protecting them from product recalls and ensuring consumer safety.
Omron strives to make traceability as easy as possible, just as it strives to make its machine vision technology intuitive enough for the average operator to use. It addresses various pain points that manufactures face in the food and beverage packaging industry so that real-time, automated traceability is easy to achieve.
Omron has a long history of partnership with manufacturers of clinical diagnostics equipment and has developed an expertise in integrating readers and machine vision systems into custom solutions for the laboratory.
