Glass containers filled with pharmaceuticals require particularly complex packaging to ensure that they arrive at the customer’s location in tact. Schreiner MediPharm has developed the Pharma-Cushion label as an intelligent specialty solution that combines reliable marking and efficient protection.
When simply packed in a large cardboard box vials are prone to transport damage due to the glass containers constantly hitting each other inside the box. In addition to the economic damage, this poses the risk of a potential release of toxic substances and the liquid may also contaminate other packaging materials.
The new Pharma-Cushion label ensures that the vials safely reach their destination. The development is a specialty label which has been provided with a layer of foam on the back that wraps around the container like a protective cushion. The front of the label is used for marking purposes. For easy application of the label to the containers by dispensing systems the material structure is thin and flexible. The Pharma-Cushion label provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with an efficient packaging and marking solution that avoids complex secondary packaging. An additional plus: Healthcare personnel are protected from injuries caused by damaged vials.
