Glass-marking system

The VALIDATE™ nonablating, high-contrast marking system for glass vials and syringes uses a laser and proprietary consumables from tesa to permanently mark fixed and variable information including text, logos, lines and 2D bar codes into the glass. In fact, the nonerasable, high-contrast nature of the mark provides the first layer of protection against counterfeiting. Due to the system's ability to mark 2D or 1D bar codes, as well as text, onto the glass, track-and-trace system functionality can be incorporated with the mark as well, guaranteeing the end user without a bar-code reader that the vial or syringe originated in the intended pharmaceutical supplier's factory.
