Orifice Medical AB
Ori Medical works with both primary and secondary packing and is often involved in the process early on in order to assist its clients with finding the most effective packaging solutions. We focus strongly on streamlining and quality work in everything we do.
Primary packing takes place in cleanrooms, and there are lots of different options to choose from. There can be different kinds of bottles, blister packs or deep blister packs.
As far as secondary packing is concerned, the company has a number of production lines with integral control systems which keep manual handling to a minimum. This builds safety into the process. Parallel-imported pharmaceuticals that have to be repackaged are checked on arrival by an automatic system in order to ensure that the batch number is correct. The production lines are also used for labelling, printing with inkjet bar or 2D codes. 2D codes are becoming more and more important. European countries are already demanding that these should replace the EAN codes.
For many clients, the fact that Ori Medical keeps bulk pharmaceuticals in stock and ships them to various markets on a just-in-time basis is a major advantage. “A lot of companies choose us because we are flexible and have extremely short lead times. We can switch quickly from one product to another,” says Birgitta Olsson, Head of Marketing and Sales at Ori Medical.
The company holds accreditation to EU GMP and ISO 13485. During the latest inspection by the Medical Products Agency, MPA, Ori Medical was also granted a licence to release pharmaceuticals from a third country (outside the EU). The US Food and Drug Administration, FDA, has inspected the company’s facilities and submitted its approval for the handling of both pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The company is compliant with the FDA’s 21CFR 820 rules and has been granted a licence to handle drugs. The company also has years of experience and established procedures relating to chilled products.
