New Pharma-Comb label has ten detachable parts


Also has a two-layer construction that offers enough space for product information

A new label from Schreiner MediPharm of Germany consists of a sophisticated two-layered construction.

For a highly potent analgesic, Schreiner MediPharm developed an innovative functional label with ten detachable parts. This sophisticated label design for easy documentation and tracking of medications belongs to the Pharma-Comb product family.

The Pharma-Comb product family helps ensure precise, efficient documentation of medications in patient records, and simplifies routine medical care in practices and hospitals. The labels can include one or more detachable parts that are printed with important information and, if necessary, also allow the physician or nurse to add extra hand-written data. Schreiner MediPharm provides diverse solutions that can be tailored to nearly any application.

For a highly potent analgesic filled in small plastic containers and drawn using a pipette, a pharmaceutical customer needed a label with a particularly large number of detachable parts. The Pharma-Comb label developed for this project consists of a two-layered construction that offers enough space for product information and ten consecutively-numbered label parts. In addition, the detachable parts contain fields where the date and administered dosage can be manually entered.

The label is wrapped around the container and is easy for the user to open and reseal. Convenient starter tabs simplify the handling of both layers and also make it easier to detach the label parts, even when wearing gloves. Physicians and nurses can place the individual adhesive labels in patient records.
