Driving digitisation forward in hospitals requires product solutions based on RFID technology. Schreiner MediPharm (Oberschleißheim, Germany) 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.
