FRANCE • At Pharmapack 2017 in Paris, Schreiner MediPharm presents its portfolio of customised pharma-security solutions to safeguard the supply chain on February 1 and 2, 2017. The company shows a newly developed label that demonstrates a combination of digital security features on a booklet-Label with an integrated first-opening seal.

Regulations such as EU 2016/161, which has to be implemented by February 9, 2019, require solutions to protect patients against falsified medicines. According to Schreiner Medipharm, the bottom layer this new booklet-label contains a tab that serves as a closure seal for tampering protection. When the seal is opened, a void effect emerges as an irreversible first-opening indication. This label applied to a medicine pack is set to allow a pharmacist, for instance, to view product information about the medication without opening the pack and thus destroying the tamper protection. In addition, the sample label is equipped with three digital security features.

The company further displays the tracing system Bitsecure as well as a label integrated NFC chip for digital authentication by smartphone.

At Pharmapack, the company’s solutions are on display in hall 4, stand M31.
