Legacy specializes in high speed bottle filling, blister packaging, and pouching as well as a full range of secondary packaging capabilities, inventory management, distribution services, DEA vault storage and a variety of other value added services. We are also a leading provider of Unit-of-Use packaging to the major retail chains and drug manufacturers.
As one of the five largest pharmaceutical packaging companies in the United States, Legacy has the buying power of a major retail pharmacy. Because of the volumes we package, Legacy is able to purchase pharmaceuticals in a “bag in box” bulk format, and then repack the product into standard bulk bottles of 5,000 units. This “bulk-up” capability is ideal for retail pharmacies, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and others who want the price advantage of a large retailer, but who may not have the volume – or the repacking capabilities – to accept bag in box shipments.
Our Packaging Services include:
Blister Pack: A unit dose package commonly constructed from a formed cavity containing one or more individual doses. Blister packs are often used for physician samples or over-the-counter pharmaceuticals.
Bottles: Glass or rigid plastic containers used to package solid or liquid pharmaceutical products. Bottles are often used to package a defined amount of drug, such as a 30-day supply, or may protect contents that require a longer shelf life.
Compliance Packaging: Often used interchangeably with Unit of Use packaging, compliance packaging helps patients take their medication property by clearly indicating when each dose should be taken. Compliance packaging has been shown to increase the patient’s adherence to a prescribed regimen.
Pouches: A flexible material (usually paper, foil, PE, PET or a multi-laminate) used to package medication. Most of the pouches filled at Legacy are for convenience packages and trial samples.
Secondary Packaging: Any form of packaging, such as an outer carton or multi-pack display case, that holds one or more primary packages (bottles, pouches or blisters).
Unit of Use: The exact amount of a drug’s treatment pre-packaged by the manufacturer or pharmacist in standardized amounts.
