”PragmatIC’s unique solutions will enable us to add connectivity and intelligence to a much wider range of products than was previously possible," says Thomas Schweizer, president of Schreiner MediPharm. “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, which is practically non-reproducible. For instance, secure identification and traceability of individual products in devices and processes. But to date it mainly has been adopted only in high value use cases because of cost. The ConnectIC devices deliver RFID solutions at a low cost point. In addition, FlexICs are ultra-thin and flexible, which makes them suitable for embedding into a wide range of substrates used for Schreiner MediPharm's functional labels.
“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,” comments Scott White, CEO of PragmatIC. “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.”
