Color has a surprising number of uses in injectables packaging.

European guidance states that “similarity in packaging which contributes to medication error can be reduced by the judicious use of color on the pack” ¹. Draft guidance issued by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA)² similarly recommends that “sponsors use color prudently to bring attention to the product name, strength, and important warning(s).” Color – when applied thoughtfully and with full awareness of the context in which the drug will be used – can be an important way for manufacturers to help practitioners and patients differentiate products and support their correct use.
