Schreiner MediPharm Develops New Security Label Providing Tamper-Evidence for Vials

Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based global provider of innovative functional label solutions for the healthcare industry, has introduced a tamper protection label with clear and irreversible first-opening indication for vials.

Drug counterfeiters frequently fill original pharmaceutical containers with ineffective or harmful substitutes. In many cases, container tampering cannot be detected, and in the worst cases a falsified medicine could even cause fatal consequences for patients. Developed specifically for vials, Schreiner MediPharm’s new solution can help prevent illegal reuse of original containers and protect their integrity.

The new security label wraps around the vial up to the level of the cap. To open the vial, a label-integrated tear strip must be peeled off, and cannot be resealed unnoticed. A warning message clearly indicating that the vial has been opened also emerges. As an optional, additional layer of protection, this first-opening indication can be boosted by a void effect feature in which previously invisible lettering or symbols separate from an indicator field.
