Schreiner MediPharm, whose US unit is in Blauvelt, NY, provides labels, inserts and other attachments to pharma vials, containers and cartons. With the newly introduced Security Booklet-Label, it has designed a packaging feature that provides necessary consumer infomation, along with tamper evidence and multiple levels of security. In Europe, it will help manufacturers meet the tamper-evidence parts of the EU 2016/161 Falsified Medicines Directive, but more generally it provides enhanced safety and security for drug packaging.
Besides a seal that provides a first-opening indication when broken, the Booklet-Label uses BitSecure technology, which prevents duplication, the KeySecure tracing system, a 15-digit alphanumeric code for item-level serialization, and an integrated NFC RFID chip, which can be read by smartphones for on-the-spot authentication.
