Regulatory requirements and the extreme conditions associated with blood storage, processing, and infusion place stringent demands on labels for blood collection and infusion bags and bottles.
Primary blood bag labels
We have designed a range of primary blood bag label materials that is fully compliant with ISO 3826 standards. These labeling products are based on an exceptional adhesive, RP32 PB, that can tolerate temperatures from +121 °C during steam sterilization, down to -80 °C, as well as freezing in ethanol to -50 °C.
Our product range is migration safe and proven to work with various plasticizers used in PVC blood bag manufacturing including the most common, DEHP.
Secondary blood bag labels
Blood donation labels are applied over the primary label and need to display vital information about the donor type, ID, product code, content, and best-before date, as well as a matrix barcode for tracing information. Labels for blood collection test tubes also need to contain important patient information.
Our RPMD adhesive is a migration safe solution for blood donation labels and offers a tight mandrel hold on blood collection tubes. RPMD ensures excellent adhesion while complying with requirements for patient safety and other country-specific regulations.
IV plastic containers and hanging labels for infusion/transfusion bottles
Label materials for infusion bottles need to be suitable for glass or PP/PE plastic. In some cases, glass and plastic bags and bottles may require hanger labeling.
For plastic infusion bag and bottle labeling, our RPMD adhesive is a migration safe solution which offers a tight mandrel hold for various container shapes and sizes while ensuring excellent adhesion.
UPM Raflatac supplies a wide range of labeling materials developed and tested according to the International Standard Test DIN 58-369, ISO 15137, ISO 15747, and ISO 15010.
Our self-adhesive label materials meet the stringent mechanical stress requirements for hanging devices on different bottle sizes and in wet or dry conditions.
