Constantia Flexibles has developed Constantia Teos, a new tamper-evident opening system for packages containing medical devices. Developed in collaboration with customers, the system was originally designed for syringes housing tumor necrosis factor inhibitors, also called TNF Blockers. The key feature of Constantia Teos is a tamper-evident peelable cover foil that is functionally destroyed during initial opening. As such, the cover foil provides reliable protection against the package’s illegal reuse.
Constantia Teos can incorporate a variety of optional overt and covert features that further assist with tamper evidence. Possibilities include holograms, customized security foil, special security pigments and inks, and unique-to-product security printing, such as microtext, hidden graphics, and built-in pattern deviations.
Constantia Flexibles’ technical support team is available to help guide customers in using the product and making production line integration turnkey. In parallel with Constantia Flexibles’ broad range of other anti-counterfeiting features, Teos helps ensure the safety and integrity of customers’ products and, therefore, patients and healthcare providers.
