Serialization Systems

                          Verifarma Logo

Thomas Packaging recently partnered with two companies, Lixis, and Verifarma, to offer track and trace serialization systems in North America. Lixis and Verifarma are based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where serialization has been the law for several years. They each have years of experience in the industry with over 1000 implementations. Lixis makes serialization and aggregation systems to retrofit to  your existing packaging lines. Verifarma offers track and trace software that takes the serialization data and stores it in a cloud based system and transfers the data to your downstream partners. Read our latest post on our track and trace serialization products for more information.

Sepha VisionScan Non Destructive Leak Tester

VisionScan Non Destructive Leak TesterThe VisionScan is a tool-less, non-destructive leak detection device for pharmaceutical blister packs. This deterministic test method provides an accurate and objective assessment of blister packaging integrity. Since its launch in 2011, the Sepha VisionScan has received widespread industry acceptance. The latest model, being introduced this year at Interphex 2017, incorporates a new, compact, lightweight design made from a GMP and FDA compliant polymer construction and an easy to use touchscreen interface. This advancement results in an improved test time as well as more efficient testing with the same high level of accuracy. With the new model, you can run a test in as little as 5 seconds per pack. The machine’s footprint is less than half a meter square and it is roughly half a meter tall so it easily fits on any laboratory table.

We will also have a selection of tablet press tooling and tablet coaters from our parent division, Thomas Engineering. Stop by our booth, number 3041, to see any of these new products.
