The Pharma-Tac Plus label from Schreiner MediPharm has won the World Label Award 2014 in the category Innovation. The innovative and sophisticated design of the multifunctional label for infusion bottles has received several recognitions already. The renowned World Label Award is bestowed by the L9 – a global alliance of label associations – on an annual basis and is considered the Technical Oscar of the international label industry.
The award-winning Pharma-Tac Plus label convinced the L9 panel of judges because of its sophisticated combination of booklet label, hanger and detachable label parts. The labeling solution for infusion bottles offers sufficient space for extensive information, ensures stable suspension, and allows reliable documentation of administered medications. The paper booklet that is securely connected to the plastic base label provides sufficient space for information on ingredients and instructions for use in several languages. Thanks to a starter tab, it is easy to open and reseal again. The robust hanger is part of the label and is easy to separate from the label construction for activation. Detachable documentation parts, which are easy to remove, even wearing gloves, ensure reliable traceability of the infusion in patient records. "The special design of the Pharma-Tac Plus label optimizes processes of healthcare personnel and improves patient safety at the same time. Another advantage for drug manufacturers: The intelligent labeling solution enhances the final product and is easy to integrate into existing manufacturing processes," says Ann L. Merchant, President of Schreiner MediPharm.
The Pharma-Tac Plus label continues its success story with the World Label Award. The product has already won three additional awards, i.e. the FINAT Innovation Award 2014 from the international label industry, the PrintStars Innovation Award 2014 from the German printing industry and the TLMI Award 2013 from the North American Tag and Label Manufacturers' Institute.
