The six winners were chosen across two categories: Exhibitor Innovation and Health Product


Pharmapack Europe, organized by UBM, announced the winners of the 2018 Pharmapack Awards. The event has been showcasing the most outstanding and cutting-edge innovations in the pharmaceutical packaging sector for the last 21 years. Six winners were chosen across two categories, ‘Exhibitor Innovation’ and ‘Health Products’.


In the Exhibitor Innovation category, BIOCORP, West Pharmaceutical Services, and sfm medical devices GmbH were chosen for excellence in ‘Patient safety and convenience’, ‘Ease-of-use and patient compliance’, and ‘Patient centricity and customisation’, respectively.


BIOCORP received the Exhibitor Innovation award for ‘Patient safety and convenience’ for Onejet, a motor driven disposable autoinjector. West Pharmaceutical Services won for ‘Ease-of-use and patient compliance’,  for their SelfDose® Patient-Controlled Injector.  sfm medical devices GmbH was given the award for ‘Patient centricity and customization’ for nextaro®, used for reconstitution of lyophilized pharmaceutical components.


In the Health Product category, UCB Pharma, GSK Consumer Health and Laboratoires Virbac were awarded.


UCB Pharma’s CIMZIA® Pack of 2 AutoClicks® Prefilled Pens was recognized for  patient compliance with a packaging system that puts rheumatoid arthritis patients and others with hand dexterity issues at the forefront. GSK Consumer Health’s VOLTAREN « No Mess » applicator was distinguished as a winner for its improvements in patient hygiene and adherence.  Laboratoires Virbac was awarded for its All in One Contactless Multidose Delivery Cap, the only “all-in-one” solution for the application of liquid products for both the animal and human health markets.


Anne Schumacher, brand director at Pharmapack Europe, said, “I would like to commend all six of the winners at this year’s Pharmapack Awards who demonstrated excellence in drug delivery, packaging and automation for better patient safety and compliance – critically taking into account consumers with severe illnesses and difficulties in dexterity. The judges particularly highlighted that such was the quality of the entries this year, that recognizing a list of top 10 exhibitor innovators was justified.”
