Schreiner MediPharm develops multi-functional labels for SHL medical auto injectors
Schreiner MediPharm, a division of the label and marking specialist Schreiner Group (Oberschleißheim, Germany), has developed specialty labels for demo devices of various SHL Medical auto injector models, in which safety and patient ease-of-use are paramount. The innovative label solutions are reported to underscore the high demands placed on the injection systems in terms of quality and patient orientation. One feature designed to assist users is particularly novel: an NFC chip has been integrated in the Amber auto injection model.
Swedish-based SHL Medical develops innovative auto injectors for leading companies in the biopharmaceutical industry. The designs of the company’s various systems are focussed on user friendliness and intuitive operation, in order to make self-medication easier for patients. In Schreiner MediPharm, SHL claims to have found a partner that exactly adapts marking solutions for these devices to highly specific requirements.
The label performs important additional functions precisely tailored to meet the requirements of manufacturers and the needs of users. To improve grip, an anti-slip varnish has been used to prevent slipping during injection. An integrated hologram helps the user identify the product as an original, and a printed QR code provides a link, via smartphone, to a website with additional product information.
SHL Medical’s Amber auto injector model is equipped with a label-integrated near field communication (NFC) chip allowing users to interactively access important information and services by smartphone. Furthermore, the label for the company’s Molly device includes a temperature indicator that produces a reversible colour shift when a defined ambient temperature has been reached.
