BarTender® Software Case Study - Labelling for Insulin Pen Safety

Article courtesy of:


Hospitals that dispense injection pens to administer insulin to inpatients face unusual labelling challenges. A pharmacy professional used a solution that included the BarTender® label software to devise an innovative labelling system that improves patient safety.

Patients found the pen system, consisting of a cartridge and a disposable needle, easier to transport and administer than the traditional vial and syringe. The pens provided reliable, accurate dosing.

However, with this advance in pharmaceutical technology came new challenges for patient safety.

How did the Bartender® label software solution solve problems such as cross-contamination and expiration dates while managing labelling consideration?
