What is a Pharmacode?
A Pharmacode is a barcode used in the pharmaceutical industry. These codes can be printed in a wide range of colors, and they can be read by lasers or other light-emulating devices. The bars have at least two and up to 16 bars.
In the pharmaceutical industry, tight regulatory controls mean that products must be labeled correctly. This means that they must have extensive packing control systems. Additionally, pharmaceutical products must meet stringent Drug Enforcement Administration rules, including chain of custody records. Using a pharmacode provides a robust system for maintaining such records, which is why it is becoming increasingly prominent.
