About Unit Dose Semi-Solid Drug Delivery

Precision comes standard at Tapemark™. 

Primarily composed of liquid states, semi-solid drugs have many options when it comes to their unit dose packaging. We’re experienced in developing products for two-step regimens (Snap Dual), multi-dose regimens (Snap Array), touch-free dispensing (Snapplicator), and formulations that require precise amounts to be applied on the skin (Snap and Snapplicator).

Our patent-protected Snapplicator performs as an applicator surface for spreading lotions and creams. Because it allows for touch-free dispensing and application, it is ideal for dispensing Rx or OTC active ingredients that you may not want to get on your hands or fingers. 

With Snap Dual Chamber, clients can package multiple formulations in a single unit that is separated by a hard seal. This enables the contents to only come in contact during unit dose dispensing.

Regardless of a project’s complexity, you can rely on Tapemark for a turnkey solution for your semi-solid drug delivery product.
