Many Mail-Order Pharmacies are faced with the challenge of marking a prescription bottle with a great deal of information. Sometimes there is more patient information and instructions than you can fit around the bottle itself.  Panther is introducing a custom label applicator to address this need.  We call it the PharmaFold.

Background

Mail-Order Pharmacy ship millions of prescription bottles, all with unique labels for each individual user. This process is typically done by operators who use a PC to pull up a patient's prescription order, print the order out, fill the prescription and the hand apply the label to the bottle. Using this process usually requires a large number of trained operators and is very inefficient.

Solutions

Panther Industries has created a unique solution to this problem with our PharmaFold applicator. This application uses our standard automation technology and incorporates an industry leading, label folding mechanism. The label fold process leaves a portion of the adhesive exposed so that the applicator can apply the exposed “tab” to the bottle and creates a "flap" that can have significantly more information printed on it.

Results

Our industry leading design is revolutionizing the way that Mail-Order Pharmacy can label their product. This new application method brings some much-needed automation the Mail-Order Pharmacy. These companies are not only beginning to experience the improved efficiency of automation but they are also able to better identify and inform their patients.
