Proofreading Pharmaceutical Packaging

The pharmaceutical manufacturer needs to check the final artwork against the original manuscript or artwork with change notes. The graphics company will want to ensure the final artwork is correct when compared to the supplied manuscript. The printed article can be checked against the approved PDF using the EyeC Proofiler.

If you design, layout or approve artwork for pharmaceutical or medical device packaging e.g. patient information  leaflets (PIL’s or Inserts), cartons, labels. You want to compare revisions, check the laid out artwork against the manuscript, check annotated PDF’s against revised version etc. and by eliminating the risks of erroneous artwork getting out into the market you reduce the risk of expensive product recalls and litigation.

Advantages of automatic proofing over manual proofreading
it takes minutes  compared to hours to compare the text and graphics  between two documents such as a large patient leaflet or games manual for example
handling foreign languages and non-Latin alphabets. As well as handling all the variants of Latin alphabets, a good automated text comparator  will compare text in Greek, Cyrillic,, Hebrew, Arabic, Han (Japanese, Chinese, Korean ideographs), Hiragana, Katakana, and Yi alphabets
different layouts, fonts and attributes should not be a problem. Imagine how time consuming and complicated it is to proofread a two sided A3 document against a supplied Word file in a totally different layout.
doesn’t get tired, doesn’t get distracted, doesn’t miss anything
accuracy is much higher
