Schreiner Medipharm receives best supplier award for Needle-Trap device

Schreiner MediPharm (Oberschleissheim, Germany), a global supplier of specialty pharmaceutical labeling solutions, has received the Best Supplier Award 2013 from Leo Pharma (Ballerup, Denmark). Schreiner MediPharm supplies the pharmaceutical company with its Needle-Trap device, which is applied to heparin syringes to protect users from needlestick injuries.

Leo Pharma's discerning level of requirements for suppliers reflect those of the greater pharmaceutical industry, says Schreiner MediPharm. It was recognized for outstanding performance servicing Leo Pharma's production site in Vernouillet, France.

Needle-Trap combines a label with an integrated plastic trap. In close cooperation with Leo Pharma, the experts from Schreiner MediPharm were able to considerably improve product quality and achieve on-time delivery. Doriane Moulard and Benoit Joseph Bezine, purchasers at Leo Pharma, presented the Supplier of the Year Award to the team from Schreiner MediPharm (pictured).

"We are happy that the cooperative partnership is reinforced by the award. This prize honors us and motivates us to continue optimizing our processes in the future," said Rainer Alberth, Senior Sales Director at Schreiner MediPharm.

The Needle-Trap product combines a syringe label with an integrated protection device that helps prevent needlestick injuries that may occur when prefilled syringes are used. After the injection, a plastic trap secures the blood-contaminated needle. 

The protection mechanism is activated using one hand. When activated, it emits a clicking sound and safely protects the needle.

The technology provides OEMs with significant cost savings thanks to a simple design, according to Schreiner MediPharm, and it can be easily integrated into existing processes. It typically does not require adjustments to secondary packaging.
