With today’s fast-paced medical environments, medical professionals need to access their information immediately, with bull’s-eye accuracy.

Besides the information needs of these labels, medical labels also require durability to withstand excessive handling and to adhere to the product surface for a long period. In the medical environments, physicians, nurses, and medical assistants and technicians rely on medical labels for information on specific conditions, specialty functions and medications/prescriptions. The labels can keep physicians and nurses apprised of any special conditions, allergies, chemical hazards, record confidentiality or required signatures. To ensure clear communication and prevent potentially life-threatening mistakes, the use of precise, easy- to-read medical labels is a must. Even medical and billing files utilize medical labels, aiding the professionals in keeping needed information organized and accessible. The uses for medical labels are endless. Some of the more common uses for them are:

  • Billing labels
  • Color code labels
  • Month labels
  • Label dispensers
  • Allergy labels
  • Numeric labels
  • Alpha stickers
  • Patient advisory labels
  • Diagnostic imaging labels
  • Year code labels

Printing custom medical labels correctly the first time is critical for medical products due to strict FDA guidelines. Available FDA-approved materials are made from high-quality material, adhesives, inks and finishes. Flexographic presses offer a wide selection of color choices, with thousands of dyes in the mix. Medical labels do have many restrictions in regard to materials and standards, but there is much room to create eye-catching designs.
