Schreiner MediPharm, a specialist in innovative functional labels for the healthcare industry, and Plas-Tech Engineering, an expert in prefillable polymer syringes, have entered into a collaborative partnership for Cap-Lock. Schreiner MediPharm launched the Cap-Lock cap adapter, an innovative first-opening indication for prefilled syringes, in the fall of 2019, followed less than a year later by a product evolution featuring a label-integrated inlay for automated supply chain management and digital first-opening indication. Now the development partnership between Schreiner MediPharm and Plas-Tech Engineering optimizes industrial manufacturing of the cap adapter to provide pharmaceutical manufacturers with full-service solution for equipping their luer-lock syringes with reliable tamper evidence.     Read more

Diabetes patients depending on lifelong insulin treatment have to administer the vital medication to themselves using insulin pumps, syringes or pens. Ypsomed offers UnoPen™, a disposable pen with variable dose setting, for this and other multidose therapies. Schreiner MediPharm has developed an NFC-Label for this injection aid that serves as a communication interface between the injector and the SmartPilot™—an electronic pen add-on. The resulting smart device interactively supports patients in using the pen and helps them adhere to their therapy plans.     Read more

During clinical trials of new drugs pharmaceutical companies must be able to depend on strict adherence to therapy regimens. However, up to 50 percent of patients involved in clinical trials do not adhere to the prescribed dosage regimen, resulting in distorted outcomes such as insufficient drug efficacy or underestimated frequency of side effects and delayed time to market. To enhance therapy adherence in clinical trials, Schreiner MediPharm and AARDEX Group offer an electronic solution for medication adherence monitoring enabling pharmaceutical companies to digitally monitor and manage medication intake of their trial participants.     Read more

In many daily healthcare situations, every second counts. The fewer the moves staff have to make the better for the patient. Consequently, prefilled syringes are frequently used for injections. Schreiner MediPharm has developed a user-friendly security label for sealing prefilled syringes enabling healthcare professionals to quickly tell that the drug they are about to administer is an original that has not been opened before or tampered with: The Syringe-Closure-Wrap delivers clear first-opening indication of the label with one flick of the wrist, protects the integrity of prefilled syringes and thus enhances patient safety.     Read more

RFID technology has been gaining traction in the healthcare sector, but standardized tools for tracking medications, devices and consumables are lacking. DoseID, a US consortium and the first industry association dedicated to standardizing the use of RFID tags in healthcare, was established for the purpose of introducing an industry-wide standard. Schreiner MediPharm has joined this alliance of leading players in the healthcare sector.     Read more

Driving digitization forward in hospitals requires product solutions based on RFID technology. Schreiner MediPharm supports this trend with a product evolution and equips its tamper-evident specialty label “Cap-Lock” with an RFID inlay. The security concept for prefilled syringes consisting of a label and cap adapter now also enables automated inventory and supply chain management as well as digital first-opening indication. Cap-Lock plus RFID thus offers efficient and reliable product authentication and enhances patient safety.     Read more

Patients suffering from life-threatening allergies always carry a life-saving companion with them: an adrenaline autoinjector in order to immediately inject themselves in the event of an anaphylactic shock and to thus counter an allergic reaction. For the emergency drug epinephrine from TEVA, Schreiner MediPharm developed an Autoinjector-Label with special protection against abrasion. Thus, the vital user and product information remains perfectly legible over an extended period of time. The label won an award in the 2019 TLMI Competition.     Read more
