The labeling solution prevents accidental needlestick injuries.

Schreiner MediPharm, a Germany-based provider of specialty pharmaceutical labeling products and systems, recently received the international WorldStar Award for its Needle-Trap label system.

After winning the German Packaging Award for the Needle-Trap label in 2008, Schreiner MediPharm was invited to compete in the World Packaging Organization’s international WorldStar Competition. All packages submitted were judged by an international jury on design, quality, economy and user-friendliness. Each package is compared to similar packages submitted from around the world and the one that is superior to the others in that category in terms of performance and innovative design is named the winner. Schreiner MediPharm received the award for its Needle-Trap label in the pharmaceutical category in May 2009.

Schreiner MediPharm’s Needle-Trap label system features an integrated safety device to help prevent accidental needlestick injuries. The design allows needles from disposable syringes to be safely and easily secured after they have been used.

Schreiner MediPharm’s US facility is located in Blauvelt, NY.
