New Syringe Label: First-Opening Indication with a Flick of the Wrist
New Syringe Label: First-Opening
Indication with a Flick of the Wrist
In many daily healthcare situations, every second counts. The fewer the moves staff have to make in an emergency the better for the patient. Consequently, prefilled syringes are the best choice for performing injections when time is of the essence. But how can physicians or nurses tell that the drug they are about to administer is an original that has not been opened before or tampered with? Schreiner MediPharm offers a novel security label for sealing syringes that provides certainty. It delivers clear first-opening indication of the label with one flick of the wrist and protects the integrity of prefilled syringes: the Syringe-Closure-Wrap.
The innovative “Syringe-Closure-Wrap” marking solution features a special design: The security label 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—in a simple and user-friendly way. Due to special security die cuts, the label is partially destroyed and cannot be closed again unnoticed. After the label has been opened for the first time, a warning appears as an additional security element. For increased product and counterfeiting protection, overt, covert or digital authentication features can be integrated into the label. A scale is provided for easy and precise dosing of the injection. The Syringe-Closure-Wrap is adaptable to all commonly used syringe sizes. In contrast to shrink-wrap solutions, no direct heat is applied in processing the syringe label, which makes it suitable also for heat-sensitive substances. The enlarged label area extending across the cap can be used for additional information, so that the compact label design offers ample space for clearly marking the product while protecting the integrity of the syringe.
Safety for the patient
Schreiner MediPharm’s novel Syringe-Closure-Wrap for sealing prefilled syringes enables healthcare professionals to effectively detect at a glance if a medication has been tampered with or previously opened. As a result, patients are reliably protected against the administration of potentially counterfeit or contaminated products.
