Schreiner MediPharm to showcase new robust RFID pharma label and secure supply chain solutions
“Connectivity” and “Integrity of the Supply Chain” are two hot topics of the pharmaceutical industry to be addressed by Schreiner MediPharm at this year’s Pharmapack in Paris. On 5 and 6 February, in Hall 7.2 at Booth D46, the pharma label specialist will present a special product innovation: a Robust RFID-Label delivering reliable end-to-end functionality from production to final use. Two other innovative products to be showcased ensure the integrity of primary containers: Cap-Lock for sealing prefilled syringes and Flexi-Cap Prime that irreversibly indicates any tampering attempt on a vial.
Interaction between the user and the pharmaceutical manufacturer, and communication between the product and a medical device: Equipping pharmaceutical products and medical devices with RFID-Labels results in smart devices that help optimise processes and enhance ease and safety of use. Extreme robustness and perfect performance of the RFID-Labels throughout the various processing stages and across the entire supply chain are prerequisites for achieving these objectives. Particularly critical to ensuring robustness is the label’s design.
The new Robust RFID-Label from Schreiner MediPharm consists of a label-integrated RFID tag that is secured by the label’s special construction. Thus, potential damage to the RFID chip, for instance due to mechanical impact during the manufacturing and handling processes, can be avoided. This guarantees perfect end-to-end performance of the RFID chip from production to final use – especially on round containers with narrow radii. Schreiner MediPharm customises the label’s design to suit the respective application and pharmaceutical manufacturing process. Thus, pharmaceutical manufacturers are provided with an effective and reliable solution supporting product and patient safety.
