Partner’s objective

To create an application that would easily scan a medication packaging and show detailed information about the specific medicine. In order to avoid allowing falsified medicinal products for sale and reaching patients through the legal supply chain.

SDH solution

According to the Directive 2011/62/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on protection against counterfeiting of drugs in the EU, protection is carried out applying a special unique number on the packaging of medicines. It makes it possible to distinguish the falsified medication from the original preparation.

SDH team has developed an application that scans a drug packaging using a mobile phone's camera or by entering a GTIN and a package serial number manually. The database shows a user complete information about the drug if it is genuine.


Mobile: Java, Android SDK.
Backend: HTML5, Python, Django, Django Rest Framework, PostgreSQL.
