The importance of the pharmaceuticals and healthcare industries has never been more apparent than in the current times. The benefits of effective medications, as well as reliable tests to the consumer are huge and are in many ways a key part of life. However, delivering this is becoming harder due to the sensitive nature of the goods together with the high volumes that need delivering.
Currently there is over 1 million Covid19 tests being conducted each day and over 140,000 vaccines delivered each day. Even pre-pandemic, blood and pathogen tests equalled more than 1 billion per year and 1.12 billion prescriptions being delivered per year. All these rely on the products not being tampered with or altered at any stage before the time of delivery. For this reason, tamper evident labels can play a key role in maintaining the integrity of products in such complex supply chains.
