The sources for medication errors are many. The final prescription package is at high risk in the supply chain because of cross-contamination or identification errors. As part of our focus to support the FDA and the healthcare industry, OPTEL supplies solutions to pharmacies, manufacturers and repackers to ensure hospital and pharmacy unit-dose or multi-dose packages are safe.
This system can be installed as an off-line, self-contained vision inspection station or as an on-line system that is integrated into existing pouching machines. Specifically, pouches or sachets pass through the system where they are verified from the top and the bottom by cameras. For the on-line system, the inspection station can be located in one area, or depending on inspection requirements and space availability, inspections can be carried out at different areas. Within an inspection unit, a high-resolution color camera verifies the top surfaces of the pouch and sachet contents.
OPTEL offers full system customization to its clients. OPTEL engineers can select, combine and optimize a specific inspection software application on a project-to-project basis. Most of these tools are preconfigured prior to delivery of the solution so that you receive a turnkey solution that meets your specific inspection requirements.
