The has a clear and irreversible first-opening indication for vials.
The new security label wraps around the vial up to the level of the cap. To open the vial, a label-integrated tear strip must be peeled off and cannot be resealed unnoticed. A warning message clearly indicating that the vial has been opened also emerges. As an optional, additional layer of protection, this first-opening indication can be boosted by a void effect feature in which previously invisible lettering or symbols separate from an indicator field.
For enhanced security, verification features for proof of authenticity also can be incorporated into the label. Furthermore, special features are available, such as a detachable documentation label, a transparent inspection window for checking vial content, a light protection function for sensitive substances, or integrated NFC/RFID chips for digital applications.
