  • Reply to: Top Institutes providing Packaging Courses

    We generally heard people talking about best B schools, best engineering colleges, best Medical institutes but we never heard people talking about the best Packaging institutes. Why so? Is there no scope for packaging technology in industry? Or there is lack of packaging institute? Or People don’t have awareness about such courses?

    Being a packaging professional I think there are many reason involved. One of the reasons is lack of awareness and mentoring. If I talk about scope, then scope is tremendous. So based on my experience let me help you guys in selecting some of the top institutes. Here I will list few institutes which are providing specialised courses for packaging technology and are preparing the professionals to cater packaging industry.

  • Reply to: New Features Autoinjector-Labels

    The market for injection devices – autoinjectors and pens – is rapidly growing. Factors such as the trend toward self-medication, the increasing incidence of chronic diseases and a growing biotech sector all play a part and require innovative solutions. Therefore, Schreiner MediPharm developed new features for Autoinjector-Labels: an irreversible first-opening indicator with an anti-recapping functionality and integrated dust protection for challenging applications.

    Injection aids for the treatment of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, anaphylactic shock or multiple sclerosis need to be easy and safe to use, particularly for disabled and motor-impaired patients. Functional labels provide valuable assistance.

    Schreiner MediPharm developed a new label concept that features a unique functionality combining first-opening protection with an anti-recapping function and dust protection. The label wraps around the autoinjector including the cap, thus providing effective dust and dirt protection before the device is opened for the first time. The integrated perforation clearly indicates that the label has been opened. The label is positioned in a way that prevents undetected recapping of the autoinjector for illegal reuse. In addition, it includes the following features: a hologram for counterfeiting protection, inspection windows with an anti-UV varnish coating to protect light-sensitive active drugs, a room temperature indicator as well as an anti-slip varnish for enhanced grip and safe handling. A label-integrated NFC chip enables diverse interactive applications to optimally assist the patient. Via a smartphone, additional product information, demo videos or special apps can be read, or mobile product authentication performed.

    Very interesting label with multiple features for first point opening, anti-slip varnish, inspection window and many others

    Autoinjectors have varied applications such as for multiple sclerosis, diabetes, anaphylaxis rheumatoid arthritis, and other therapies. These devices are more accurate, are known to display better efficacy, lower the chances of needle-stick injuries, are consistent in terms of dosage, simplicity and are also simple and safe.
