MUMBAI, India – August 25, 2007 – When INTERPHEX India makes its debut in Mumbai next month, it will offer more than just a comprehensive showcase of products, services and technology solutions for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Event participants can look forward to an in-depth Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) educational program, produced by OTA Training, LLC, which will provide valuable insights and share best practices of how RFID is being used today in the global pharmaceutical industry.

The applications for RFID in the pharmaceutical industry are expansive and new applications are emerging every day.

A recognized leader in RFID education, OTA Training has put together a clear, comprehensive program to educate Indian pharmaceutical professionals as to how their global counterparts are successfully implementing and benefiting from RFID technology.

“RFID is one of those once-in-a-generation technologies that sends people marveling at all the applications and possibilities, and particularly in pharmaceuticals where that is definitely the case,” said OTA Training CEO and Founder Robert Sabella. “At INTERPHEX India, we will be hosting a series of in-depth RFID educational sessions to serve the burgeoning pharmaceutical industry in India.
