To prevent these illegal activities, it is necessary to serialize vaccines and make them traceable.
The incredibly complex logistics behind the safe distribution of temperature-sensitive COVID-19 vaccines has quickly become a top priority. From the time a vaccine leaves the manufacturer until the time it is administered to a patient, it needs to be transported and stored under ideal and highly specific conditions. Cold chain errors might constitute a patient safety hazard and cost billions of dollars each year.
Supply chain readiness is key to efficiently deploying COVID-19 vaccines to the target populations. Advanco and WIPOTEC-OCS are part of the international efforts to protect people worldwide from COVID-19.
In this webcast the two leading serialization providers revealed how they support Thermo Fisher Scientific, who distributes COVID-19 vaccines worldwide. Heart of advanco’s solution is the new state-of-the-art ARC COLD CHAIN, together with WIPOTEC-OCS, a first-class serialization and aggregation equipment supplier, we developed a pioneering software serialization solution through the following multiple processes:
- Serialization and aggregation without bundle labelling on the WIPOTEC-OCS line
- Aggregation from bundle to special Ultra Low Temperature (ULT) shipper
- Cold storage for 48hrs in the freezer farm
- Exception management through ARC Platform rework function
