PCI Pharma Services is an integrated full-service provider and a trusted partner to leading companies in the global healthcare industry. With a strong reputation for providing secure and reliable advice on the importation and distribution of clinical trial products, PCI’s primary goal is customer safety.

Implementation of a flexible serialization and aggregation solution with 100 percent electronic verification with a vision system to asses each individual component.
PCI selected the Antares Vision Tracking System, which was implemented on certain strategic, customer-funded lines. ATS allows PCI to verify aggregated bottles before they are packed with a series of images. This means that all cases are double checked before being dispatched, which has eliminated a past challenge for PCI – ensuring quality control at each stage of the process. PCI focused on the user-friendliness of the system for its production teams on the floor and the flexibility to ensure consistency, accuracy and reliability for lots of different packages and pack-outs from lots of different customers, often utilizing one line.
“Our needs were met by purchasing various small footprint Antares Vision machines and hardware kits to integrate into existing equipment, so the line space requirements were kept at a minimum.” – Ray Hook, Director of the Global Serialization Group at PCI.
