Is One-off Packaging Our Future?


Published on December 10, 2019

Emerging standards of care increasingly focus on personalized treatment, even to the level of a single patient at a time. Genetic traits and other uniquely individual factors are becoming the foundation for disease management. These advancements present new challenges and layers of complexity to formulation, packaging, labeling, distribution channels and patient safety for drugmakers—and the packaging of those drugs.

Have we also mentioned the growing push for sustainable packaging practices?


The September 2019 FachPack conference in Nuremberg, Germany, brought more than 40,000 people (with a record number of US and foreign attendees) together with more than 1,500 exhibitors to discuss, learn and see packaging innovations and ideas related to these critical themes.

The global nature of biomedical transformation calls all of us around the world to expand collaborative conversations across markets. As a leading industry showcase and “think base” for the European packaging community, FachPack provided such a platform. And with Save the Dates already circulating for FachPack 2021, the news from this year’s event inspires us to stretch our science in bold directions for the changing horizons of care.
