Constantia Flexibles has introduced Constantia TEOS, a new tamper-evident foil cover for medical packaging.
The Austrian company said it developed the new opening system in collaboration with customers. It originally designed the system for syringes containing tumor necrosis factor inhibitors, or TNF Blockers.
According to the company, the cover foil is destroyed when peeled back, making it a reliable form of protection against illegal re-use of the package.
Constantia Flexibles said this new medical packaging system can incorporate a variety of optional tamper-evidence features, including holograms, customized security foil, special security pigments and inks, as well as security printing such as microtext, hidden graphics, and built-in pattern deviations.
Frederick J. Lutz, regional sales manager for the company’s pharmaceuticals division in North America, said:
“Drug counterfeiting continues to be an important issue worldwide, and fighting this threat is of paramount importance to us. In parallel with Constantia Flexibles’ broad range of other anti-counterfeiting features, TEOs helps ensure the safety and integrity of our customers’ products and, therefore, of patients and healthcare providers.”
