Syringes with in-mold labelsIn-mold labeling (IML) on a medical syringe barrel can foil counterfeiters of injectable pharmaceuticals in pre-filled syringes. In-mold labeling offers a number of benefits to pharmaceutical brand owners interested in protecting their intellectual property, including the ability to create a label with special inks that will only be revealed under special "black" lights. The label can also be "coded" so that each syringe has its own identity and the polymer label actually becomes a part of the syringe barrel, making it impossible to remove the label and replace it with a counterfeit one, the company states. Label placement accuracy is within +/- 0.010 inch.
