Among the multitude of inspection objects for which scanware has been providing inspection systems for more than 30 years, preparations are a group of particularly variant products. The inspection of medicines in the packaging process is of paramount importance to manufacturers and contract packagers as well as pharmacists and patients. While all medicines have the function of curing or preventing disease, they differ in the release of the active pharmaceutical ingredients.


Dosage forms:

  • Dermal – active ingredients for absorption through the skin and direct passage into the bloodstream e.g. creams, emulsions as well as active ingredient patches.
  • Oral/peroral – various forms for ingestion through the gastrointestinal tract, e.g. tablets, capsules and lozenges.
  • Parenteral – liquids for administration by injection, e.g. infusions. These products are often packaged in ampoules, syringes and vials.
  • Topical – Medicines for application in the affected area, e.g. eye drops, nasal sprays, suppositories. Here, a labelling check is carried out in the packaging process.
