Schreiner MediPharm’s Freeze-Lock Cryogenic Label features an interlocking layer solution providing adhesion strength and readability for processing, storing and transporting frozen drug containers.
The new Free-Lock label from Schreiner MediPharm consists of two elements: a bottom label and a top label.
According to the company, the bottom layer of the label has a special microfiber surface texture that can be applied to the unrefrigerated empty container at room temperature. This container can then be filled with the active deal, such as drugs for cell and gene therapies, and immediately chilled for storage in dry ice at -78ohC or liquid nitrogen at -196ohVS
When the container is removed from cold storage for labeling, the company says the top layer label can be applied to it and pressed firmly against the bottom label without having to remove any layers of ice. The top label’s freeze adhesive apparently combines with the bottom label’s texture and sets in seconds, which, the company adds, forms a permanent bond between the label construction and the container that allows it to be stored and transported in frozen conditions. conditions.
Additionally, the two-component label design, along with the materials and adhesives used, would allow the Freeze-Lock cryogenic label to adhere to the frozen container without losing product information. Schreiner MediPharm says pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers and clinical researchers will benefit from the custom manufacturing solution for frozen drugs that can be adapted to a wide range of applications.
Last year, Schreiner MediPharm developed a new specialty label for infusion bottles with a combined in-label suspension and booklet solution that allows full product descriptions in multiple languages to support international pharmaceutical trials.
