Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based global provider of specialty pharmaceutical labeling solutions for over 60 years, has developed specialty labels for demo devices of various SHL Medical auto injector models in which safety and patient ease of use are paramount. The innovative label solutions underscore the exacting demands placed on the injection systems in terms of quality and patient orientation.
One feature designed to assist users is particularly novel: a Near Field Communication (NFC) chip has been integrated in the Amber® auto injector model.
SHL Medical develops innovative auto injectors for leading companies in the biopharmaceutical industry. The designs of the company’s various systems are focused on user friendliness and intuitive operation, in order to make self-medication easier for patients. In Schreiner MediPharm, SHL has found a partner that exactly adapts marking solutions for these devices to highly specific requirements.
The label performs important additional functions precisely tailored to meet the requirements of manufacturers and the needs of users. To improve grip, an anti-slip varnish has been used to prevent slipping during injection. An integrated hologram helps the user identify the product as an original, and a printed QR code provides a link, via smartphone, to a website with additional product information.
SHL Medical’s Amber® auto injector model also is equipped with a special new feature: A label-integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) chip allowing users to interactively access important information and services by smartphone. Furthermore, the label for the company’s Molly® device includes a temperature indicator that produces a reversible color shift when a defined ambient temperature has been reached.
In addition to these helpful functions, the specialty labels allow for customized branding and thus emphasize the manufacturer’s brand presentation.
