the actual risks
Globalized pharmaceutical logistics networks are threatened by the scourge of counterfeits, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic. The remedy is efficient, proven and easy to deploy anti-counterfeiting solutions.
Anticounterfeiting technologies may serve three distinct basic purposes:
anti-counterfeiting technologies can be characterized in the following ways:
- technologies based on chemical-physical characteristics
- technologies based on mechanics
- ID coding and serialization
- distributed ledger
Some of the more interesting types of anti-counterfeit technology
Surface Fingerprint and Laser Surface Analysis
Invisible printing with standard inks
2D/3D holograms (diffractive optical variable image devices: DOVIDs)
Color-shift inks and, more generally, optical variable inks (OVIs)
Blockchain and crypto anchors
Optical authentication of physical unclonable function (PUF) tags
Unfortunately, it frequently rhymes with “cost.” High costs can derive from many factors: complexity, learning curve, novelty, exotic materials, etc.
What does AlpVision offer ?
ALPVISION’S SOLUTION FOR PHARMA COUNTERFEITING AND BRAND PROTECTION
AlpVision, a leader in the brand protection market, provides invisible digital anti-counterfeiting and product authentication solutions to Fortune Global 500 companies across many industrial sectors worldwide.
AlpVision offers a selection of covert anti-counterfeiting technologies suitable for print/packaging and physical goods:
Cryptoglyph is an invisible digital marking that is applied to printed products such as cartons, labels, and blister packs, using regular visible ink or varnish and standard printing processes (offset, rotogravure, flexo, laser, inkjet, etc.).
Simple and industry-proven, AlpVision Cryptoglyph protects billions of products across industries worldwide. It is commercialized under license agreements as an entirely customizable turnkey system.

With no changes to the standard production process, the AlpVision FingerprintTM technology leverages the intrinsic microscopic surface irregularities found on products and uses these unique characteristics as the means of authentication (no safety features are added). The anti-counterfeit solution based on this technology track and authenticates products. This solution applies to a wide variety of product parts, including molded bottles and caps, and in general to all kinds of packaging for pharmaceuticals.

BMS, Brand Monitoring System
AlpVision can integrate different security features and technologies into its anti-counterfeiting solutions, thus complying with the above-mentioned principles of robustness and efficacity. BMS is a server-based web application that allows brand owners to perform online monitoring and product authentication. BMS can manage AlpVision’s digital solutions for product authentication (Cryptoglyph, Fingerprint), as well as other third-party product authentication and brand protection solutions, such as QR codes, barcodes, two-dimensional matrix codes, and OCR.
All these technologies are natively AI fueled and can be further customized to meet the requirements of prospective life-science customers. Notably, regulators (such as the FDA) have started to approve AI software for use in healthcare.
