Liquid dosage forms are sometimes considered old-fashioned, but there are innovative new approaches that enable the creation of single unit doses. Naturally, traditional liquid delivery formats still have some uses, e.g. in over-the-counter cough remedies.
However, as the nutraceutical industry has developed and prescribing practice and consumers’ lifestyles have changed, pre-measured liquid dosage forms have considerably increased in popularity and they are much more convenient to the consumer.
Many companies have concentrated their efforts to manufacture better single unit doses, and developed the technology to fill single dose vials (SDV) more efficiently using pharmaceutical grade machinery—offering many advantages: they are lightweight, portable, non-breakable, tamper-proof, stable and easy-to-use. Moreover, these SDV forms remain stable until opened and can reduce or eliminate the need to use preservatives in the formulations.
Single-dose drinkable vials are the alternative to syrup bottles as now used in the nutraceutical industry. An SVD is approved for use for a single dose, with the advantage of not having to save left-over product where harmful bacteria can grow and potentially harm the consumer—an important advantage. The SDV can also help consumers having trouble swallowing tablets or capsules, offer a faster absorption than solid doses, may have soothing effects on irritated throat tissues and are easy for children to take.
All Marnys-Martínez Nieto SDV products are manufactured per Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and tested to exceed stringent specifications set forth by the authorities. Our manufacturing processes follow GMPs for dietary supplements, using Hazard Analysis Contamination Control Point (HACCP) systems to identify potential risks and to set up barriers to prevent them from occurring.
