Child-resistant, senior friendly dose format debuts

Colbert Packaging Corporation, a manufacturer of folding cartons, rigid paper boxes and paperboard specialty products, today announced the availability of MedLock EZ, its latest invention in patient compliance packaging solutions. MedLock EZ is a child-resistant, senior-friendly and sustainable unit dose alternative to amber prescription vials.
