Schreiner MediPharm has announced colored films for its anti-counterfeiting label and cap solution, Flexi-Cap. According to the company, the solution provides clear and irreversible indications that the container has been opened, preventing the illegal reuse of the containers.
The German company said the new colored film caps help doctors and nurses easily identify and differentiate medicines with various potencies, thus avoiding medication mistakes. Pharmaceutical manufacturers can also include branding on the Flexi-Cap, Schreiner MediPharm added.
According to the company, the Flexi-Cap is similar to wine bottle coverings, but the company adapted the cap to meet pharmaceutical industry requirements.
Gene Dul, President of Schreiner MediPharm U.S., said:
“The newly available colored films provide Flexi-Cap with a secondary benefit—avoiding medication administering errors—to supplement its primary purpose as a customizable, highly effective anti-counterfeiting tactic.”
Schreiner MediPharm will showcase the Flexi-Cap and its new colored films options at InnoPack, part of the CPhI Worldwide, October 13-15 in Madrid.
