Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based provider of functional label solutions for the healthcare industry, has developed a label with comprehensive first-opening indication for pre-filled syringes.
Offering enhanced patient safety, the new Syringe-Closure-Wrap features a label that wraps around the syringe barrel and the complete cap. When the user pulls off the upper part of the label, the integrated first-opening indication is triggered. Due to special security die cuts, the label is irreversibly destroyed and cannot be closed again unnoticed.
Frequently in healthcare situations, every second counts. The fewer the moves staff must make, the better for the patient, so prefilled syringes are often used for injections. Schreiner MediPharm’s security label for sealing prefilled syringes is designed to be user-friendly and enable healthcare professionals to quickly ascertain the drug they are about to administer is an original that has not been tampered with or previously opened.
The Syringe-Closure-Wrap delivers clear first-opening indication of the label with one flick of the wrist, protecting the integrity of prefilled syringes and thus enhancing patient safety. After the label has been opened for the first time, an additional warning appears as a visible security element. For increased product and counterfeiting protection, overt, covert or digital authentication features can be integrated into the label.
