Catalent Pharma Solutionsand One World Design and Manufacturing Group are to design and market packaging for One World's NextBottleT unit-dose compliance bottle, which will be sold to pharmaceutical manufacturers. The NextBottle is designed to improve compliance through a dial mechanism that dispenses only one pill at a time and gives patients a visual reminder of when they last took their medication. This aims to reduce accidental non-compliance. Under the agreement, One World will exclusively produce the device while Catalent will provide filling and packaging services. The two US-based companies will work together to develop new packaging solutions for the product.
