Ritrama: New labelstock material for blood bags

Blood bag labelling solution: RI-337 WHITE AP970 WG62

ITALY Ritrama’s new RI-337 white AP970 WG62 is a matt white synthetic paper used for application to a pliable surface, such as a blood or plasma bag. The company claim that due to excellent resistance to plasticizers, the AP970 adhesive ensures a secure bond with the bag’s surface.

The synthetic paper labelstock material can be printed with traditional methods (UV letterpress, UV screen printing and UV flexo) before thermal transfer printing may be used to complete the information with a variable data print to record patient and transfusion details.

The new labelstock material carries ISEGA approval according to DIN EN ISO 3826-1 for “Plastic Collapsible Containers for Human Blood and Blood Components”.  This standard certifies that the adhesive components of the material have been found not to migrate through the plastic into the bags.
