Standardised, consistent, unmistakeable medication labelling is indispensable in everyday medical work. The unambiguous identification of syringes pre-filled with medicines can significantly reduce the risk of medication errors in acute and emergency medical care.
For secure, reliable medication identity labelling, Mediaform offers syringe labels in roll form, as well as Rettikett sheet labels for use in ambulances. Praxikett Designer medication software is available to create individually customised syringe labels on the spot.
These large and small self-adhesive, disinfectant-resistant syringe labels, and PLUS labels for infusion solutions, have a strongly-adhering, ISEGA-approved adhesive, can be optionally written on, and adhere securely to plastic, glass or metal surfaces at temperatures from -10°C to +50°C.
As a basic principle, all the syringe labels conform to the ISO Standard 26825:2008 and fulfil the current DIVI/DGAI recommendation for the identification labelling of syringes in intensive and emergency medicine, and in anaesthesia.
Our syringe labels are based on the use of two-dimensional data matrix codes that can be read using 2-D scanners. These DIVI syringe label codes (DSEC) include the active ingredient as well as the amount and unit, and represent an additional control authority when administering medications.

In cooperation with Mediaform, the IfN (Emergency Medicine Institute) and the AGNN (Consortium of Emergency Doctors Working in North Germany) introduced an identification model specifically designed for ready-to-use (prefilled) medicines for use in ambulances.
This joint project is based on the recognition that the use of labels in roll form has proved to be impracticable for use in ambulances. Thus Rettiketts came into existence in 2014. They display all the medications that are important in emergency medicine conveniently on a single A5-sized page, and are easy to handle, taking into account the various scenarios of an emergency deployment. The main focus is on medicines that are not administered immediately, but are prepared and administered during the assignment.
Rettiketts fulfil all the requirements of high-quality, secure adhesion. They use a special ISEGA-certified adhesive that is suitable for, among other things, indirect adhesion to blood bags or infusion lines, and sticks firmly to the demanding surface of a small-radius syringe. In addition, these syringe labels are disinfectant-resistant and are therefore always reliably legible.

By establishing a connection between medication and IT, Praxikett Designer paves the way for entirely new medication processes. As software for standard PCs, the medication software contains a catalogue of more than 500 standardised large and small syringe labels in accordance with the current DIVI/DGAI recommendation. The labels can either be printed out directly in the required amount and combination, or they can be adapted to individual needs and gathered together in the profile management.
Developed especially for the emergency services, there is also a simple online solution to print standardised labels for all prefilled syringe medicines - in accordance with the recommendation of the German interdisciplinary Association for ICU Medicine & Emergency Medicine (DIVI). Praxikett Designer software, available online, allows labels to be individually customised, self-printed and enclosed with ampoule kits. More than 250 emergency services already use this software, thus allowing the most important syringe labels for ambulances to be self-printed directly, while simultaneously saving time and money.
