Faubel Pharma Services is a business unit of the Faubel Group. Operating globally the company has been demonstrating its competence in product labeling for over 165 years. Faubel sets standards – in quality, innovation and services. As one of the leading system suppliers of booklet labels and custom labels, Faubel has specialized in meeting the needs of the pharmaceutical industries with a focus on supplying multi-purpose labels for clinical trials. Customized design is guaranteed by an own R&D department and the entirely in-house performed production. These are the key success facts for Faubel. Currently, it has more than 280 staff working at its Melsungen headquarters, its sales offices in Europe and Asia as well as at its subsidiary in the United States.

Since 1994 the quality management system has been compliant with the ISO 9001 and has been integrated according to the EU GMP-guidelines. It helps to satisfy contracted customer requirements, as well as to plan, carry out, monitor and optimize all quality-relevant activities, thus enhancing customer satisfaction. It is implemented and applied throughout the company.

Faubel’s products and services open new potential. Thanks to its experience and know-how in material processing plus the unique machinery set-up, Faubel is able to satisfy the customers’ most complex packaging demands. Faubel comes up with solutions that are suitable for the smallest containers such as vials or syringes, and for unusual shapes like inhaler sprays, too. Worldwide distribution often makes it necessary to include different contents and languages into the label. Often up to 40 different languages have to be accommodated as it is the case for pharmaceutical products. As for larger texts, they can easily fit in the 113-page booklet labels.

In a clinical trial, every phase involves some new challenges facing pharmaceutical manufacturers. The subsequent printing of pre-made bulk labels with variable data (overprinting) is a time-consuming task. That’s why Faubel wants to take it off your hands by an efficient service package which can be adapted to the requirements of any clinical trial. Faubel offers overprinting on booklets of up to 113 pages, randomized data printing, code printing (2D codes and 1D barcodes), camera or visual inspections, replacement of faulty labels during printing.

If trials are to be international and the participating countries are supposed to only receive the pages pertaining to them, Faubel will compile the country-specific contents and obtain the corresponding approvals (routing). A weekly overview of the current project status will give medicine manufacturers the transparency they need while the complete documentation will be handed over to them upon completion of the order.

To blind investigational drugs, Faubel offers a variety of products which can fully cover vials, bottles, pots, jars and tubes on the one hand, and protect trial-related data against fraud, on the other. Blinding solutions by Faubel can be used for single-blind or double-blind trials and completed with various options such as Braille, safety features like tamper-evident or code-break functions as well as with documentary elements.

Holistic concepts featuring digital labels including appropriate software have widened Faubel’s portfolio. Those solutions meet current needs such as track & trace, serialization or monitoring of temperature. The Faubel-Med® Label is a smart label based on RFID and e-paper technology. Featuring a digital display that can be updated automatically, it is an alternative to relabeling when the stability data change. Now, Faubel is creating a smart label that displays the complete content of clinical trial labels. It is a further development of the Faubel-Med® Labels. With the new Faubel-Digital Labels, all the data shown on the e-paper display becomes alterable.
