As a means of curbing the counterfeit of prescription drugs via the reuse of pill bottles, German manufacturing company Schreiner MediPharm has debuted a smart packaging technology called “Flexi-Cap.” The peel-off cap sits atop the bottle so that when it is first opened, the cap is irreparably detached. Then, when the inner top to the bottle is removed, the label is destroyed, making it clearly distinguishable as having been used. In addition to its main purpose a counterfeit-deterrent, the label is “smart” in that it can be applied without using heat and the multilayer label allows space for multi-lingual instructions and other important text.
