Rx closure

A dual-purpose closure for prescription medications carries the 1-Clic® tradename. Reportedly injection-molded of HDPE, the closure has a tab on one side that turns and clicks to close but when reversed is senior-friendly enough to warrant the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use commendation, the co. notes. Developed for solid pour-and-count medications, the closure fits the amber PP vials from the same co. and is said to be compatible with automated equipment in prescription departments. Another advantage is closure inventory reduction while retaining the patient's option. The co. cites a recent market research study in which nearly 75 percent of respondents rated the dual-function closure as “excellent” to “good.”
