Ritrama label for blood bags

Ritrama has developed a new labelling solution for hospital blood bags. The new RI-337 WHITE AP970 WG62 uses a matt white synthetic paper that is conformable, easy to print and withstands challenging environmental conditions whilst fully compliant with all regulatory requirements. It uses AP970 adhesive that is resistant to plasticisers but ensures a secure bond with the bag’s surface. Thus the adhesive can withstand likely issues such as centrifugation, cryogenic freezing, refrigeration, manual handling and a change in temperature exposure.

The synthetic paper labelstock material can be printed with traditional methods (i.e. UV letterpress, UV screen printing and UV flexo) before thermal transfer printing may be used to complete the information with a variable data print to record patient and transfusion details.

It meets all regulations for labelling a blood and plasma bag, including ISEGA approval according to DIN EN ISO 3826-1 for “Plastic Collapsible Containers for Human Blood and Blood Components”. This standard certifies that the adhesive components won’t migrate through the plastic into the bags, hence making it a safe and suitable choice for blood bag labelling.
