FINAT Innovation Award for Smart Blister Pack
With the Smart Blister Pack from the Schreiner MediPharm business unit, Schreiner Group won first place in the 2019 FINAT Label Competition in the “Innovation” category. The high-tech company convinced the judges of the European association for the self-adhesive label industry (FINAT) again this year and was presented with the award on the occasion of the European Label Forum in Copenhagen.
“We are delighted about the Innovation Award. It proves that innovation as one of our four corporate values is being lived in concrete ways and produces smart solutions that are trendsetters for our whole industry,” President and CEO Roland Schreiner said in his comments about Schreiner Group’s accolade. “All of our high-end high-tech solutions are characterized not only by outstanding quality but, above all, by technological innovations, particularly in the case of new developments.” On behalf of the company, Dr. Joseph Adelsberger, Team Leader Basic Technologies in Schreiner Group’s Research+Development department, accepted the FINAT Label Competition award.
The growing trend toward Smart Packaging requires solutions in the area of Patient Compliance Monitoring, among other things. The Schreiner MediPharm business unit together with the Schreiner PrinTronics competence center develops customized applications with printed electronics that are precisely adapted to the respective packaging. The award-winning Smart Blister Pack enables electronic monitoring of medicine intake and thus supports the digitization of Patient Compliance Monitoring. It serves to check and track therapy adherence according to medical prescriptions as part of a therapy plan. In addition to the Innovation Award, the judges at the European Label Forum praised three other products from Schreiner Group: the ((rfid))-Digital Void Label, the (rfid))-DistaFerr WetDetect label and the Folding Frame Solution.
