MediPharm has expanded its product range with the launch of a tamper-proof closure sealing solution that is designed for folding cartons and wallets.

Known as Multi-Tear Closure Label, the German company’s transparent product combines the security mechanism effects film-tear and fibre-tear.

The pharmaceutical label provider integrated the effects to prevent the undetected opening of pharmaceutical packaging.

When an attempt to unnoticeably peel off the seal is made, the film-tear effect destroys the film while the fibre-tear feature causes the cardboard surface to tear, preventing the label from being completely removed and providing clear evidence of tampering.

Schreiner MediPharm US president Gene Dul said: “The Multi-Tear Closure Label promotes protection and efficacy of pharmaceuticals via an innovative system of double tamper protection mechanisms.

“In addition to compatibility with a variety of substrates, the solution functions in compliance with the EU Falsified Medicines Directive and other regulations promoting product and patient safety.”

The transparency of the sealing solution will also allow companies to display logos, design elements and overprinted variable data such as batch numbers and expiration dates without being covered.

Multi-Tear Closure Label is also compatible with various types of cardboard surfaces and is suitable for use on varnished cardboard boxes.

According to the company, the solution meets the requirements of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive, as well as the international ISO 21976:2018 Tamper Verification Features for Medicinal Product Packaging standard.

In February, Schreiner MediPharm unveiled its Smart Vial Kit packaging solution at Pharmapack 2019 in Paris, France. It is designed to enable the electronic tracking of medication prescribed to patients.
