    "Unit dose" is the name of the game in today's Pharma World and this will be a game changer – The Wings of a CDMO. Measuring caps, tablespoons, teaspoons and multiple dose containers for Oral Liquids and Eye drops are a thing of the past. Today's patient is looking for convenience and Doctors are also realizing the value of unit dose with regard to writing prescriptions. Parents and caretakers of children and Geriatrics whether at home or in a hospital /nursing home are seeing the benefit of not having to measure an oral liquid plus not having to share an oral liquid bottle or have a Doctor write multiple prescriptions of the same medicine to cover home and school, etc. It also allows doctors to now be able to write prescriptions for controlled substance oral liquids as unit doses addressing the abuse issue. It also allows Pharmacists to store the oral liquids under lock and key – a great new advantage that does not exist today. Best of all it opens the doors to almost any unit dose oral solid or multiple dose oral liquid to be converted to a unit dose oral liquid to address several challenges including stability concerns related to multiple dose oral liquids such as light sensitivity and oxygen head space. The benefit of introducing ophthalmics as unit dose without preservatives is an immense advantage in addition to the convenience of transportation. Today's world of nebules to be used for Inhalation is governed by unit dose and is a great patient convenience.

    Just imagine the convenience of being able to have a few Liquid stick packs of your favorite Cough-Cold-Fever medicine readily available in your Laptop bag or purse and not needing to worry about leaving the whole bottle behind after a trip or while going on a trip. Also, the convenience of being able to share the same medicine with other family members and literally take it in any setting without having to worry about measuring it. This enhances patient medication compliance and adherence to medication schedule and eliminates medication dosing errors due to several reasons including the most ignored one- language barriers to read and understand instructions on labels especially for OTC products wherein a Pharmacist may not be engaged in explaining the dosing directions.
