Med-ERRS provides safety testing for packaging and labels produced
for US and international use. These evaluations may be performed in
response to specific regulatory requirements or to support
sponsor-generated requests for label changes.
To do so, we apply various tools and techniques, including elements of
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
, to "error-proof" the written and associated graphic
information on items including, but not limited to:
- Medication bottles and cartons
- Dosing cards
- Titration kits
Along with using FMEA, Med-ERRS also collaborates with human factors engineers to further
ensure the safety of packaging and labels. By developing and performing simulation studies,
tests can be conducted in settings that mirror the actual locations where these products might be found.
