Best for pharmaceutical companies

Olnica offers customized solutions for the pharmaceutical industry that outpace the advanced technologies used by criminal counterfeiting organizations.

In the pharmaceutical industry, fake drugs are literally killing people.

  • 72,000 and 169,000 children may die from pneumonia every year after taking counterfeit drugs (who).
  • Fake anti-malarial medication might be responsible for an additional 116,000 deaths (who).
  • 90% of suspected counterfeit drugs could cause harm to the patient (novartis).

While some measures, like QR code serialization, have been put in place, they don’t go far enough. A copied QR code on pharma packaging allows the drug inside to appear genuine.

Despite millions already spent on anti-counterfeit measures, the problem still exists and is growing exponentially.
