Schreiner MediPharm, a German-based pharmaceutical company, introduced a laser film label for dental carpules.
The label contains emissions-free marking on the carpules with extremely narrow diameter of about 5mm, which can contain variable data such as batch numbers or expiration dates, according to packworld.com.
Dental carpules, small applicators attached to syringes, are marked with small-sized labels that help dentists in selecting right filling composition and color which varies from patient to patient.
The new label is based on Color Laser Film (CLF) marked using a laser beam, which features a thin composition and flexible structure suitable for application to tiny syringe carpules.
Schreiner MediPharm US president Gene Dul said dental carpules pose a challenging surface to mark in a field that demands precision and accuracy.
"Our new Color Laser Film labels can help dentists be more efficient while contributing to patient safety," added Dul.
