Schreiner Group (Oberschleißheim, Germany) received the special jury prize at the Bavarian Innovation Award for an outstanding innovative and technologically complex product development. Dr Ulrike Wolf, ministerial director at the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, presented the prestigious award for the medical product "Coldplasmapatch", also known as CPTpatch. This is a high-tech pad for the treatment of wounds that is based on printed electronics. It generates cold plasma that kills multi-resistant bacteria, promotes cell regeneration and can thus heal chronic wounds – even if they were previously considered incurable. Schreiner Group realised the innovative product together with the medical technology company Coldplasmatech.
Pharma label expert Schreiner MediPharm (Oberschleißheim, Germany) and SCHOTT Pharma (Mainz, Germany), the specialist in drug containment and delivery solutions for medications, have been engaged in a partnership for several years. Its objective is to develop new smart concepts that add functional value to prefilled syringes. At the PDA Universe of Pre-Filled Syringes and Injection Devices Conference in California, both companies have now for the first time presented a coordinated, newly developed solution to equip prefilled syringes with RFID. The combination of syringe and smart label opens up diverse opportunities to optimise hospital routines, among other things.
Henkel (Düsseldorf, Germany), a global leader in material technologies and Quad Industries (Sint-Niklaas, Belgium), a specialist in printed electronics, have developed a new concept to enable innovations for smart health patches with accelerated speed to market at lower cost. The partners are offering a demo package of twelve electrodes that customers can order online. The demo package is designed to allow engineers to quickly test the functionalities of their concepts, significantly reducing the development time by up to three months and lowering the overall design costs.
