The Flexi-Cap Protect from Schreiner MediPharm.

The Flexi-Cap Protect from Schreiner MediPharm employs an additional cap that protects the bottom of bottles or vials against glass breakage and surface contamination. A second cap is added in addition to the cap that covers the closure and upper part of the container. Both caps are affixed to the container using a label. Optionally, the label can be provided with an integrated foam layer to protect against lateral impact. Flexi-Cap Protect’s label and two caps are applied without heat, so that the medicine’s properties are not impaired. The upper cap includes space for imprinting warning notices, codes for track-and-trace systems, or for integrating near-field communication inlays for interactive applications. Flexi-Cap Protect comprises a film cap positioned over the closed container. The label is applied without covering the peel-open tab of the opening strip. Once the strip is opened, the bottom part of the cap, together with the label, remains attached to the container. Attempting to remove the rest of the cap destroys the label, eliminating the possibility of unnoticed illegal reuse. Flexi-Cap enables flexible use with different container types, forms, and sizes.
