■Codes – Ring Codes
In contrast to barcodes and plain writing, the markings on spikes of ampoules are not standardised in a machine-readable way. Nevertheless, as with all other medicinal products, reliable recognition is necessary. The necessary characteristics of the ring codes are specified by scanware.
■Recommended system for ring code inspection
The PATERA packaging control system controls parenterals such as ampoules in colour using artificial intelligence-based vision technology. The user interface is very easy to use and adaptable to the operator’s field of application, the software optimised for the inspection of ring codes. The built-in hardware offers outstanding illumination control, which is stored format-related and thus reproducible.
