Schreiner MediPharm’s Pharma-Comb SL label has earned honors from the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute for technical achievement in the Flat Screen Printing category.
At its 33rd Annual Awards competition, the Tag and Label
Manufacturers Institute, a North American narrow web industry
association, awarded first place for excellence in technical achievement
in the Flat Screen Printing category to Schreiner MediPharm for its
Pharma-Comb SL label.
The Pharma-Comb SL label is designed to provide convenience
and ease-of-use for multidose medications. After opening the upper
label, the detachable label parts underneath automatically “rise” for
easy and efficient peel-off. Even when wearing gloves, healthcare
personnel can detach the upright, self-lifting label parts and apply
them to filled, disposable syringes.
Schreiner-MediPharm’s Web site explains, “When administering
drugs to patients, definitive labeling of the product and comprehensive
documentation are essential. Hand-written entries in patients’ medical
records often make it difficult to read critical information such as
drug names, batch numbers, and expiration dates. In addition, essential
information may be lost when refilling the product from its original
into another container.” Pharma-Comb specialty labels contain “one or
several documentation segments printed with essential data.”
