22 October 2020 Tablets & Capsules A survey of what's available UV cold laser marker UV cold laser marker permanently marks pre-packaged or loose tablets and cap- sules of any size or shape with high-resolution, tamper-proof text, barcodes, and graphics. Because the markings provide a unique, verifiable identity for each and every dose, products can be tracked in real time through the supply chain to the final consumer, reducing the risk of counterfeiting and drug theft. Incorporated software allows users to quickly and easily change font design, size, wording, and graphics. UV laser marking is non-invasive and does not affect the makeup of the product. Marking process is not affected by environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity, and no special clean room or air filtration is required. Each unit is supported by the company's global service network and comes equipped with a DQ, IQ, and OQ validation package. Unit's control system is compliant with GAMP 5 and CFR part 11.
