Product provides protection against glass breakage and contamination
Schreiner MediPharm has further developed its innovative first-opening indication security concept, Flexi-Cap, for oncology applications. An additional cap protects the bottom of bottles or vials against glass breakage and surface contamination.
Flexi-Cap Protect works as follows: in addition to the cap, which covers the closure and upper part of the container, a second cap is added to protect the bottom and lower part. Both caps are affixed to the container using a label, which can be provided with an optional integrated foam layer to provide further protection against lateral impact.
Consequently, the container’s surface is completely protected. Furthermore, the two caps and label are applied without heat, so that the medicine’s properties are not impaired. In addition, the upper cap offers space to print warning notices, codes for track-and-trace systems or to integrate NFC inlays for interactive applications.
Cytostatics are highly potent substances that combat cancer cells, but they are extremely toxic to healthy cells. Therefore, it is imperative to protect packaging against surface contamination and glass breakage. ‘The different functions of the newly developed Flexi-Cap Protect solution ensure the protection of users against the severe consequences of possible contamination and simultaneously guarantee the integrity of the primary packaging,’ notes Ann L. Merchant, President of Schreiner MediPharm.
