Schreiner MediPharm Makes Multi-Functional Labels for SHL Medical Auto Injectors

schreiner medipharm

Schreiner MediPharm has provided SHL Medical with specialist labels for a number of auto injector model demo devices, where ease-of-use and patient safety are critical.

The innovative label solutions underscore the exacting demands made on the injection systems in terms of quality and patient orientation. As a novel feature to assist the user, an NFC chip has been integrated in the Amber® model.

SHL Medical develops innovative auto injectors for leading companies in the biopharmaceutical industry. The design of the systems is focused on user friendliness and intuitive operation in order to make self-medication easier for the patient. In Schreiner MediPharm, SHL has found a partner who adapts the marking solutions for the devices exactly to these requirements.

The label performs important additional functions which are precisely tailored to meet the requirements of the manufacturer and the needs of the users. To improve grip, an anti-slip varnish was used to prevent slipping during the injection. An integrated hologram helps the user identify the product as an original. A printed QR code provides a link to a website when being read via a smartphone.

The Amber® model is additionally equipped with a special new feature. A label-integrated NFC (near field communication) chip offers users the opportunity to interactively access important information and services by smartphone.

Furthermore, the label for the 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.

More than a million needlestick injuries occur in European hospitals and private medical practices every year.
