Currently, the “color coding” project includes 100% of Cristália’s portfolio of injectable products targeting to enable an easier identification of the drug to be administered, therefore contributing to less administration errors

Emabalagens

As most drug manufacturers do not manufacture products using packages that meet market’s needs, hospital pharmacies had to develop a true industrial production process.

Most drugs that reach to medical facilities cannot be distributed and administered in a safe manner. This happens because about 70% of everything produced by pharmaceutical industry are reserved to retail market, and are not addressed to hospital settings.

Such reality led Cristália to invest on innovation in the primary packages of its products addressed to hospitals, thereby implementing the following additional innovations in its packages:

Color-Coded Labels

The Brazilian regulatory authority (ANVISA) recommended some actions, including Resolution RDC 71, addressing the implementation of color-coded tags according to the therapeutic class to which a product belongs. While this approach is interesting and feasible, this is not a mandatory procedure. In spite of that, Cristália has decided to implement the recommendation, and, once again, had a breakthrough!

RDC71

Cristália sought in the international market a manufacturer that could supply ampoules with colored rings, in line to the recommendations of Resolution RDC 71.

Since then, Cristália has made available to the market ampoules and vials that not only have colored labels, as suggested on RDC 71, but also engraved ampoule rings on matching colors exhibiting the “abbreviation/initials” of the drug inside it.

Today, “color coding” project includes 100% of Cristália’s portfolio of injectable products targeting an easier identification of the drug to be administered, therefore contributing to less administration errors.


Sterilized Cases

UOne of the most significant innovations for Anesthesiology has been the introduction of the sterilized products line - Sterile Pack – for drugs/ substances that are applied right into patients’ neuroaxis (spine). The Sterile-pack case makes sure that the whole primary package of a drug is sterile and free from any contaminations, thus avoiding post-spinal puncture infections.

This brings safety both for physicians and patients.

Latex-Free Bungs

The replacement of bungs made of latex used to seal ampoule-vials for latex-free bungs is another major innovation in terms of safety, due to the high number of patients and doctors that are allergic to latex. By using this approach, Cristália’s injectable products contribute to safer surgical procedures.
