Schreiner MediPharm is set to unveil the Smart Vial Kit packaging solution next month at the Pharmapack 2019 in Paris, France.

The kit is designed to enable electronic tracking of medication dispensed to patients.

It features a multi-vial box with continuous number designated perforated areas corresponding to individual compartments.

When a vial from a compartment is taken out, it is tracked in real-time through printed electronic provision integration.

The system generates all data in real-time, including exact removal time, the specific compartment from which the vial was removed, as well as the respective medication.

All data is automatically stored in the packaging and can be retrieved through a smartphone app using Near Field Communication (NFC) or Bluetooth.

The information can be transferred into a data platform for additional analysis.

The packaging kit for vials can be equipped with heat monitoring technology when using temperature-sensitive or liquid substances. It also allows reminder function integration.

Utilising its medication adherence monitoring capabilities, Schreiner MediPharm has specifically designed the kit for clinical trials to help in achieving better data quality.

Smart Vial Kit streamlines the trials by reducing documentation requirements and offers greater flexibility in selecting trial designs.

The kit can be adapted to other medical containers such as syringes. It is also available as a blister pack.

At the Pharmapack 2019, Schreiner MediPharm will showcase the Smart Blister Pack, which is an NFC label for digital authentication of autoinjectors. It will also present its UV and light protection labels for glass containers with liquid medicines.
