Delpharm, France’s leading contract manufacturer installs serialisation and aggregation software from Adents on several pilot lines
Massy (France) – Delpharm, France’s leading pharmaceutical contract manufacturer, has announced details of a company-wide project to comply with current and pending regulatory requirements pertaining to drug serialisation and aggregation. Delpharm has installed serialization and aggregation software from France-based Adents on several pilot lines over four different sites in France and Belgium. Adents’ solution is now operating on more than 80% of the lines equipped for serialization and aggregation.
Throughout the world, the emergence of new laws and regulations pertaining to drug serialisation is mandating most pharmaceutical manufacturers to implement unit level serialisation and aggregation processes on their packaging lines. As the N°1 contract manufacturer in France and among the top five of all European CMOs, Delpharm must provide an exceptional level of flexibility, responsiveness and quality in order to serve the specific production needs of multiple world-class pharmaceutical companies while ensuring compliance with current and emerging regulatory requirements.
To ensure the production of pharmaceuticals for China, South Korea and Brazil, Delpharm decided to implement serialisation and aggregation on several pilot lines in its French sites of Lille, Tours, and Huningue and in its Belgian site of Drogenbos. These lines are already equipped and operating. Additional lines will be upgraded over the course of 2016. Deployment on the remainder of lines will occur in phases depending on future regulatory requirements and customer needs. In just a few years, Delpharm has built a network of more than 10 sites following the acquisition of production sites belonging to various pharmaceutical companies. As the production installations are constantly evolving to maintain the highest level of service, the contract manufacturer has defined flexibility and cost as decisive criteria in the evaluation of different serialization solutions available on the market.
The level of interoperability and configurability provided by the solutions chosen by Delpharm enable the contract manufacturer to maintain existing standards and ensure the adaptability of their solutions for future equipment.
Our partners have been extremely committed and effective since the launch of the project. With regards to Adents, pilot lines using Adents software solution produce now batches for South Korea, Brazil and China and meet our customers’ requirements for drug serialization and aggregation.

Christophe Devins, Founding partner and CEO of Adents, adds: “The project parameters with Delpharm were numerous and complex, both in terms of time of implementation and the level of flexibility needed given the heterogeneity of the production environment and regulatory requirements related to multiple countries. However, the unparalleled modularity of the Adents Pharma Suite enabled us to quickly and easily meet the requirements of our customer. “
