Unit-dose packagingOral liquid medications are now available in different unit-dose package sizes, allowing for dose sizes ranging from 5- to 45-mL. A key feature of this packaging design includes a flat-spoon shape to help ensure proper dosing and to allow medication to be administered to the patient directly from the package. The packaging also features more printable space for complete product labeling, a durable, flat shape to allow hospitals to store liquid medication in medication filing bays and automated dispensing machines and Reduced Space Symbology (RSS) bar codes that allow healthcare providers to track the NDC lot number and expiration date of each medication dose within a single scan.
