Schreiner Group recently announced that it won first place in the 2019 FINAT Label Competition in the Innovation category for its MediPharm business unit’s Smart Blister Pack. On behalf of the company, Joseph Adelsberger, Ph.D., team leader for Basic Technologies in Schreiner Group’s research and development department, accepted the award at the European Label Forum in Copenhagen.

“We are delighted about the Innovation Award,” said Roland Schreiner, president and CEO. “It proves that innovation as one of our four corporate values is being lived in concrete ways and produces smart solutions that are trendsetters for our whole industry. All of our high-end high-tech solutions are characterized not only by outstanding quality but, above all, by technological innovations, particularly in the case of new developments.”

The growing trend toward Smart Packaging requires solutions in the area of patient compliance monitoring, among other things. The Schreiner MediPharm business unit, together with the Schreiner PrinTronics competence center, develops customized applications with printed electronics that are adapted to the respective packaging. The Smart Blister Pack enables electronic monitoring of medicine intake and thus supports the digitization of patient compliance monitoring. It serves to check and track therapy adherence according to medical prescriptions as part of a therapy plan.
