Schreiner MediPharm debuts specialty label for autoinjectors at Pharmapack North America
Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based global provider of specialty pharmaceutical labeling solutions for over 60 years, will feature a new customizable specialty label for autoinjectors at Pharmapack North America, which will take place May 22-23 in Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center. The innovative label can be designed to fit the specific requirements of individual manufacturers, performing important, often unique functions that provide added value to both drug manufacturers and end-users.
Schreiner MediPharm’s new customizable label brings potential for a number of valuable autoinjector options. For example, the label could feature a two-layered design, where the upper layer provides UV protection for the window underneath. To check the contents of the autoinjector, the label can be opened by means of a tab and then be closed with ease. Detachable labels with specific data can be integrated to remind patients to check the drug in the autoinjector regularly. The label parts also make it possible to document injections in patients’ medical records or medication diaries.
The specialty label’s possible safety and security benefits are far-reaching. By way of a reversible color-change effect, an embedded temperature indicator can show whether or not the autoinjector is sufficiently cooled. Another feature is security ink that changes color perception according to viewing angle – a reliable anti-counterfeiting solution. A special varnish also makes it possible to incorporate abrasion-resistant variable laser marking.
“Any patient who regularly performs self-injections welcomes aids that combine reliability with ease of use,” said Gene Dul, President of Schreiner MediPharm U.S. “Our new customizable label opens up a broad range of benefits, from safety and security to convenience and compliance. We look forward to presenting the new label at the Pharmapack Show, and welcome the opportunity to discuss this topic at the Pharmapack Conference.”
