Unit dose packaging: what is it & how it works

Unit dose packaging is when goods are designed for immediate use such that they are individually packaged into pre-measured single-use doses. As a result, unit dose packaging can help to promote proper dosage control and reduce the risk of contamination while providing increased accuracy and convenience to users.

Unit dose packaging can come in many forms such as individual blister packs, single-dose vials, pre-measured sachets, or single-use tubes. Though seen in consumer products, it is also predominantly used in healthcare or pharmaceutical industries to encourage compliance with medical prescriptions, maintain the integrity of products, and allow for easy on-the-go use.
