COMPUTER VISION FOR THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
The pharmaceutical industry is an immensely powerful sector, representing the world’s 6th largest economic market. Its economic power and important influence on global health carry a great responsibility, which the sector must respect through upholding strict standards and responding to specific challenges and expectations. Due to the constant inspections that the industry is subject to, it must ensure strict controls throughout the development and production of medicines.
To support companies with this task, a “Pharma 3.0” model is currently being developed and is beginning to transform the traditional codes of the industry. Computer Vision is increasingly proving itself as the number one tool for the modernization and productivity in the pharmaceutical industries.

Experiments are essential in the creation of new drugs, however this requires numerous tests as well as other costly and time consuming processes. Indeed, it takes an average of 15 years for a drug to be placed on the market.
- Accelerate the phases of experimentation
- Analyze test results with greater accuracy
Study of cell reactions to particular compounds (in vitro)
Identify changes in the structure of the cells tested through image analysis and group identical results in record time.
Identification of abnormal behaviour of test subjects (in vivo)
Always film the test subjects and be able to detect the very first
The handling of chemicals and/or toxic products is necessary in the work of the pharmaceutical industry. The constant risk of injury and contamination of these products demands for strict hygiene standards to be respected.
- Prevent workplace accidents
- Ensure compliance with health standards
Detection of abnormal fire and smoke outbreaks
Initiate emergency procedures at the first sign of a fire hazard.
Detection of risky behavior of clients
Send an alert when a client does not comply with safety instructions
Inspection operations, of both machines and drugs, can be extremely resource-intensive.
- Optimize quality control of finished goods
- Monitor equipment and infrastructure for defects
- Automate inspection operations that are currently still manually executed
Quality control of pharmaceutical drugs
Guarantee the overall quality of your products by checking: the physical integrity of the tablets, that the correct number of tablets are present in each pack and ensuring information on packaging corresponds to its content..
Predictive maintenance on production machines
