Robinson Printing Helps Medical Device Maker Fit in Extra Languages

Robinson Printing (Temecula, CA) is currently helping Volcano Corp. (San Diego, CA) include up to 20 languages on one IFU (instructions for use). The project, which started in the summer of 2012, is a complex one, involving separate IFUs for more than a dozen models of the company’s products, including Eagle Eye Platinum catheters used for Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS). Robinson was charged with maintaining the same IFU weight and thickness as earlier versions featuring fewer languages.

“We needed to increase the number of languages to address EU regulatory requirements,” explains Erin Thompson, associate product manager, IVUS Imaging, for Volcano Corp. “We had to ensure that the new IFUs did not exceed the original weight because any changes could affect the overall package weight, which would require package revalidation. We also weren’t changing the IFU content other than having it translated into different languages.”

Packing in More Labeling Solutions at PACK EXPO

It is no surprise that pharmaceutical and medical device packaging professionals are looking for efficient ways to add printing, labeling, and verification technologies to their packaging lines.


Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers alike are gearing up to include more product information in labeling. Many of these products will need to carry item-level serialization or other variable information, and some products must bear detailed warnings to convey product risks. And for manufacturers serving a global market, they must accommodate the 20-plus languages spoken within the European Union (EU), along with new outer packaging requirements under the Falsified Medicines Directive.
