Nolato, in collaboration with ’smart technology specialist’ Water.io, presents standard packaging as well as complete bespoke solutions with built-in electronics to meet increased customer demands for patient centric design which will be at the heart of all future drug development.
Increased compliance has become a big focus area due to rising healthcare costs resulting from therapeutic failure caused by non-prescription compliance. With smart digital caps the packaging can monitor the adherence and send reminders via an app to the patient or the caregiver based on the patient’s individual prescription. It can also stimulate daily use of, for instance, vitamins or food supplements by light signals from the cap and activate automatic replenishment of product subscriptions or encourage communication between the user and the brand owner.
Digital pharma packaging also provides numerous applications with regards to safety, with features such as user authentication, adult approval, time and dosage verification as well as monitoring the handling instructions of a specific medicine. Yet another area of use is the collection of patient usage data during clinical trials where digital packaging provides safe and simplified methods for capturing, registering and monitoring information which enables reduced lead times during the development of new drugs.
The application areas and the possibilities with smart technology pharmaceutical packaging are endless. Talk to us about your future packaging challenges. Nolato has the resources and the know-how to realise your ideas.
Smaller carbon footprint from plastic pharma containers
How does a plastic pharmaceutical container fare in comparison with an equivalent container made from glass or aluminum in terms of its carbon footprint? To get some clarity on this issue, Nolato Cerbo in Trollhättan commissioned an independent party to conduct a comparative life cycle analysis.
Cope Allman Jaycare develops process for printing Braille directly onto plastic containers
Cope Allman Jaycare has developed a process that allows a lay down of up to a 0.5mm thickness of UV cured ink directly onto the surface of a plastic container. In-house screen printing facilities were adapted to maintain an even and consistent print height. Although originally developed for printing Braille onto containers, the process also can be used in traditional screen printing, allowing clients the opportunity to highlight particular parts of their artwork (i.e. logos, etc.) by raising the print from the surface of the container.
Cope Allman Jaycare introduces a new Child Resistant Spray Pack
