Labels deal supports drug authentication

BP Labels has been picked up by U.K.-based Filtrona's Coated & Security Products division, maker of Payne Tear Tape and Payne Security products. The latter include brand-protection solutions incorporating overt, covert and forensic technologies. 

The acquisition furthers CSP's objective of providing creative and secure packaging solutions. BP, which runs ISO-qualified production facilities in Cardiff, produces secure self-adhesive labels for pharma and other industries. The labels are used in authentication solutions.

The announcement comes on the heels of a capsule-shell encryption deal between Pfizer and brand-protection tech supplier NanoGuardian, and the unveiling of a materials-based nano-structure technology for item-level protection by Bilcare, as reported.
