Cold Chain Temperature Indicators

Threshold Indication

Temperature Indicators - Threshold Indication

When the threshold temperature is exceeded, the indicator blocks the barcode preventing it from being scanned and moving further along the supply chain. Through CCL’s combined label, the manufacturer was able to achieve both time and cost savings while improving patients’ quality of care. Let CCL Healthcare be your solution to cold chain monitoring. 

Overview of Smart Packaging

Smart labels and packaging connect brands with their consumers and consumers with the brands through their products. Smart packaging has the ability to change the packaging landscape, providing consumers and patients with a digital experience, authentication, medication adherence tracking, product re-ordering, loyalty programs, rewards, that traditional packaging can not achieve. Smart packaging can range from a label that can indicate that change in temperature, tampering, authenticity, to a full connected experience that can immerse and connect consumers and patients with a range of rich multimedia videos, gamification, and coupons to tracking health behaviors, medications, alerts and reminders. Capturing the critical data to promote healthy lifestyle changes to increase health outcomes.

Inverted Hanger Labels (IVHL)

The inverted hanger feature allows the label to hang upside down, making it easier to read the information on the label when the medication is stored on a shelf or in a medicine cabinet. This design also helps to conserve space, as the label can be hung on a peg rather than taking up valuable shelf space.

Inverted Hanger labels for medication are typically made from high-quality, durable materials that are resistant to moisture, light, and other environmental factors that can affect the quality and effectiveness of the medication. They are also designed to meet industry regulations and standards for medication labeling, ensuring that patients receive accurate and comprehensive information about their medications.
