Nice Touch

Cortegra, Fairfield, NJ, introduces Braille-embossed cartons and labels in compliance with impending mandates in the European Union. Pharmaceutical packaging will be required by law to have product names, formulation, and strength displayed in Braille by October 2010. Cortegra embosses the Braille in an uncontracted system, which means the words are spelled out, instead of a contracted or chain system in which one character can represent an entire word. Explains Dr. Narendra Srivatsa, director of packaging solutions, “We also had to use highly precise tooling, not only to make sure the characters were correct, but to make sure it was done without damaging the cartons.”
