The flexible containers that package injectable drugs must provide the essential information of the product: its name, the name of the laboratory holding the MA, the name of the manufacturer and/or the name of the subcontracting laboratory if applicable, the volume contained and the composition of the product. Variable data are also indicated. They concern the batch number, the production number, or the expiration date. Since a misinterpretation of the information by the end user can lead to serious consequences for the patient, printing is an important aspect. Likewise, for an user-friendly comprehension and to avoid any risk of error, its quality must be faultless.
