PragmatIC, Schreiner MediPharm Team Up for Smart Labels

PragmatIC, a provider of flexible electronics, and Schreiner MediPharm, a supplier of specialty labels for the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, have entered into a strategic partnership to add smart labels based on PragmatIC's ConnectIC family of flexible integrated circuits into Schreiner MediPharm's product portfolio.

"PragmatIC's unique solutions will enable us to add connectivity and intelligence to a much wider range of products than was previously possible," said Thomas Schweizer, Schreiner MediPharm's president, in a prepared statement. "We are developing innovative smart labels for packaging and multiple device types that will improve usability and safety for both patients and healthcare professionals."

The use of RFID in the pharmaceutical industry offers a variety of applications through the assignment of a unique ID number that is practically non-reproducible—for instance, the secure identification and traceability of individual products in devices and processes. The ConnectIC devices are designed to be low in cost, the company reports, while the thin and flexible FlexICs are suitable for embedding into a range of substrates.

"This partnership with Schreiner MediPharm highlights how our ground-breaking ConnectIC product line is set to accelerate the deployment of RFID-based digital solutions in the healthcare sector," said Scott White, PragmatIC's CEO, in the prepared statement. "We are really pleased to see adoption of our technology by leading global suppliers like Schreiner MediPharm and look forward to working closely with them to develop new use cases for their products."
