    Unit DoseMallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals has responded to an increased demand for drug products which are packaged for "unit dose" dispensing. A unit dose drug product is packaged in an individually sealed non-reusable container designed to hold a quantity of drug intended for administration (other than the parenteral route) as a single dose directly from the container. Unit dose products are generally employed in a hospital unit dose system. Unit dose dispensing allows a drug to be fully identifiable and the integrity of the dosage form is protected until the actual moment of administration. If the drug is not used and the container is intact, the drug may be retrieved and re-dispensed without compromising its integrity.
