US Label Institute TLMI Awards Schreiner MediPharm’s Pharma-Tac Plus Label

Schreiner MediPharm’s Pharma-Tac Plus label with a robust hanger for infusion bottles, which was jointly developed with Octapharma, was first place in the Multi-Process category by the North American Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI).

The judging panel was impressed by the high-level printing technology and sophisticated label design.

The Pharma-Tac Plus label for infusion bottles combines product marking with a hanger, several pages for product information and detachable documentation parts.

The tear strength and stability of the label-integrated hanger are important to ensure secure hanging of the infusion bottle.

Due to its two-layered construction, the label provides ample text space for product information in three languages and meets regulatory requirements for multilingual countries. The label is easy to open and close again.

In addition, it has two detachable documentation parts for the patient’s medical records that can be post-printed with the batch number.

Schreiner MediPharm president Ann L Merchant said: "The pharmaceutical manufacturer receives a reliable solution in this label that upgrades the final product and can be easily processed in manufacturing operations.

"In addition, it optimises processes in daily hospital care settings because healthcare staff can efficiently and reliably use the product.

"Furthermore, the traceability of the infusion makes an important contribution to patient safety."

Since 1977, the North American Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) has been sponsoring an annual international competition to recognise the industry’s best products in various categories.

The panel of expert judges attaches importance to aspects such as innovation and outstanding printing and manufacturing quality. Many of Schreiner MediPharm’s innovative products have been awarded at this prestigious competition.

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