Schreiner: Label Solution for Infusion Bottles Wins International Award

A True Multi-talent: TLMI Award for Pharma-Tac Plus Label by Schreiner MediPharm

Another Schreiner MediPharm product joined the international list of the label industry’s best. Pharma-Tac Plus, the multi-functional label solution for infusion bottles took first place in the 2013 TLMI Awards competition of the North American Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute in the “Multi-Process” category. The innovative solution was developed in cooperation with Baxter Healthcare Corporation.

The TLMI Awards judging team places particular importance on the attributes of innovation as well as printing and manufacturing quality of the product entries. The Pharma-Tac Plus label convinced judges due to its superior printing expertise and high quality level. Furthermore, the sophisticated design spoke for itself. The goal of the innovation was to equip a label for infusion bottles with enough space for extensive information, ensure stable hanging and, additionally, allow easy documentation of administration. An integrated booklet label, a hanger and detachable label parts achieve these functionalities. “The earlier we are involved in the customer’s product development process, the greater our ability to target the specific requirements and apply our know-how,” says Ann L. Merchant, President of Schreiner MediPharm.

The paper booklet provides an extended area for multi-lingual text on ingredients and instructions for use. It is firmly connected to the plastic base label, and can be opened and closed with ease by means of a starter tab. The robust hanger is an integral component of the label, and is easy to separate from the label construction for activation. The detachable documentation labels ensure reliable tracing of the medication and allow safe handling, even while wearing gloves. “With the Pharma-Tac Plus label, we developed an intelligent solution that upgrades infusion bottles and optimizes the end user’s processes,” says Merchant.
