Schreiner MediPharm at Pharmapack Europe in Paris

Schreiner MediPharm will showcase its innovative Flexi-Cap security concept at Pharmapack Europe in Paris from 11-12 February, 2015.

The company can be found in hall 5 at stand 1009, and will also present new features for autoinjector-labels such as NFC chips for electronic tracking, as well as patient communication.

Flexi-Cap clearly indicates first opening of containers.

Dumpster diving involves removing empty medicine containers from waste containers, so they can be refilled with counterfeit substances, and sold as alleged original products.

With Flexi-Cap, Schreiner MediPharm has developed a security solution that clearly and irreversibly shows first opening of a primary Flexi-Cap features an innovative combination of a label and a film cap.

The bottom portion of the cap and the label adhere to the container when it is unsealed, and attempting to remove the rest of the cap destroys the label.

The security concept enables flexible use with different container types, forms and sizes. In contrast to shrink-wrap solutions, the label design is applied without using heat, making it suitable for temperature-sensitive medicines.

Integrated extra security features such as holograms, colour-shifting inks, guilloches or hidden extras such as a void effects or covert color pigments provide suppliers, pharmacists, healthcare personnel and patients’ reassurance that the product is genuine.

In addition, Flexi-Cap’s top provides space for barcode printing or NFC chip integration. Important user information can be communicated or patient compliance documented.

User safety is important when developing pens and autoinjectors for self-injection.

Schreiner MediPharm’s multi-functional label solutions support high demands of injection systems in terms of quality and reliability. The label functionalities can be individually combined to increase user comfort and patient safety.

Integration of NFC chips enables electronic tracking, patient communication or monitoring patient compliance. A printed QR code leads users to a website and important, additional information.

Double-layered, reclosable labels protect contents from UV rays if the pen is equipped with an inspection window to check the medicine.

The label that encloses the cap features a perforation to indicate first opening of the autoinjector, and the authenticity of the pen can be checked by various overt and covert anti-counterfeiting features.

In addition, a special anti-slip varnish ensures safe handling, while an integrated temperature indicator shows the correct ambient temperature for injection.

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