Introduction to the packaging of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products
Pharmaceuticals require more detailed packaging than do other sensitive products, such as foods, although there are several similarities in their requirements. Almost every type of modern packaging is used for the wide range of medications and devices now available, but the quantities involved are usually smaller than with foods. Security and integrity of the package are, however, more important and are controlled by licensing arrangements.
