Late Stage Customization for pharma RFID labels offers just-in-time supply

To support pharmaceutical companies in optimizing their supply chains, Schreiner MediPharm has developed an innovative solution: Late Stage Customization (LSC) for RFID-Labels, enabling sophisticated smart labels to be supplied on short notice with order-specific programming of the integrated RFID chip.

The company says it is responding to the challenges of an increasingly fast-changing healthcare industry by extending its LSC service to RFID- and NFC-Labels. The labels are initially pre-produced in larger volumes with integrated RFID inlays and warehoused as semi-finished goods.

When requested by the customer the pre-produced labels are subsequently customized by digital printing for delivery at short notice. This enables flexible production of sophisticated smart labels and ensures fast response to customer inquiries, it claims.

Schreiner MediPharm’s special service not only offers high levels of customization and short lead times but also ensures reliable performance of the integrated RFID chips due to continuous quality inspections, it added. The chips can be individually programmed as needed. In addition to high levels of customization and fast deliveries, it reduces process costs, according to the company.

Because no minimum order quantities are required and warehouse costs are minimized, pharmaceutical companies benefit from high flexibility and cost efficiency. The special design of the RFID-Labels features a unique structure to protect the sensitive chip and also ensures RFID performance from production to final use, says the company.

Schreiner say it is responding to the developing needs of the pharmaceutical industry which is confronted with continually changing market conditions and growing segmentation trends. These requires flexibility and agility to guarantee security of supply, it believes.
