PrintStars Award 2014: Schreiner MediPharm Recognized for its Outstanding Product Development Expertise

Pharma-Tac Plus Hanger Label Receives German Printing Industry’s Innovation Award

Schreiner MediPharm is one of the winners of this year's prestigious "PrintStars" Innovation Awards by the German Printing Industry. The Pharma-Tac Plus label for infusion bottles received a gold PrintStars award in the "Labels" category. All in all, more than 900 innovative printed products were entered.

The Pharma-Tac Plus label combines product marking for infusion bottles with various integrated functions, including a booklet with sufficient space for extensive text in several languages, a secure and practical hanger, and detachable label parts for recording the medication. With this label, Schreiner MediPharm has developed a sophisticated solution that adds value to the pharmaceutical manufacturer's end product and can be used in existing dispensing systems without any problems. In addition, it helps optimize processes carried out by medical staff. The Pharma-Tac Plus label allows end users to safely and efficiently hang infusion bottles. It also ensures that all important product information is readily available and facilitates recording of the administered medication.

"For this development, we combined our knowledge of material and adhesive technologies as well as dispensing, printing and die-cutting techniques with many years of experience in the pharmaceutical market. This enables us to produce innovative labeling solutions with diverse additional benefits," says Ann L. Merchant, President of Schreiner MediPharm. The Pharma-Tac Plus label offers a prime example of Schreiner MediPharm's expertise, and the PrintStars award is actually the third recognition this special label received. This year it already won an innovation award from FINAT, the international association for the label industry, and last year it won a prize from the North American label association TLMI. These accolades attest to a high level of expertise in printing technology and exceptional development expertise.
