Unlike existing pharma packs — standard bottles, amber vials and blister card-in-a-box designs — Dosepak Express combines a leaflet or insert, outer carton and blister in one integrated pack.

This design can help ensure that patients follow doctor's instructions throughout their medication regimen.

Dosepak Express is designed with a calendar and an easy push-through blister to help patients remember which pills to take and when (e.g. night or day tablet).

Billboard Space for Education and Branding
Dosepak Express's large, fold-out panel holds package information leaflets or inserts (PIL or PI), and its design has space for dosing instructions, reminders and branding. The design helps build patient adherence, strong brand identification and patient loyalty, and allows for large, readable fonts.

Safe and Efficient Format
The efficient, pass-through Dosepak Express eliminates the need for pharmacists to repackage medication into vials — saving time and money while helping prevent dispensing errors. And Dosepak Express packages stack and store more efficiently than amber vials, saving shelf space.       

Easy on Manufacturers
Dosepak Express leverages the flexibility and branding space of an outer folding carton with an integrated blister pack, and easily runs on most existing packaging equipment. Manufacturers maintain efficient, economical processing on production lines with the compact design both in blistering and cartoning.     

Paperboard Materials
We use renewable paperboard resources to produce the outer carton of our Dosepak Express packages versus petro-based plastic vials.
