Pharma-Tac Plus Hanger Label Receives German Printing Industry’s Innovation Award
Schreiner MediPharm is one of the winners of this year’s prestigious PrintStars Innovation Awards by the German Printing Industry.
The Pharma-Tac Plus label for infusion bottles received a gold PrintStars award in the Labels category. More than 900 innovative printed products were entered.
The Pharma-Tac Plus label combines product marking for infusion bottles with various integrated functions, including a booklet with sufficient space for extensive text in several languages, a secure and practical hanger, and detachable label parts for recording medication.
With this label, Schreiner MediPharm developed a sophisticated solution that adds value to the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s end product and can be used in existing dispensing systems without any problems.
In addition, it helps optimise processes carried out by medical staff. The Pharma-Tac Plus label allows end users to safely and efficiently hang infusion bottles. It also ensures all important product information is readily available, and facilitates recording of administered medication.
Schreiner MediPharm president Ann L Merchant said: "For this development, we combined our knowledge of material and adhesive technologies as well as dispensing, printing and die-cutting techniques with many years of experience in the pharmaceutical market.
"This enables us to produce innovative labelling solutions with diverse additional benefits."
The Pharma-Tac Plus label is a prime example of Schreiner MediPharm’s expertise, and the PrintStars award is the third recognition the special label has received.
The label also won an innovation award from FINAT, the international association for the label industry, and in 2014 it won a prize from the North American label association TLMI.
