Label for Two-Chamber Pharmaceutical Tube Offers Transparency
In collaboration with tube manufacturer Neopac and machine producer Harro Höfliger, Schreiner MediPharm (schreiner-medipharm.com) has developed a special marking label that encloses a pharmaceutical tube like a pocket. The label design offers transparency and space for information, and can be applied automatically on packaging lines.
Schreiner MediPharm designed the label for the Fleximed Easymix tube from Switzerland-based Neopac, a specialist in the development and production of pharmaceutical tubes. Comprising two separate chambers filled either with two different liquids or a liquid and powder, the transparent tube is an alternative to glass vials. The tube’s contents are mixed shortly before the medication is administered by compressing the tube chambers, which are separated by a flexible seam.
The company's marking solution consists of a front and rear part that encloses the tube like a pocket with ample space for text. A cutout in the label provides an unobstructed view of the two tube chambers’ individual components.
Schreiner MediPharm collaborated closely with Neopac’s project partner for the tube filling and sealing processes, Harro Höfliger, manufacturer of production and packaging equipment with deep expertise in engineering machinery for medical device and pharmaceutical applications.
