Drive Successful Commercial Product Launches through Effective Key Packaging

Whoever said it’s what's in the inside that counts was quite frankly lying. Given that you invest so much time, money and resources on a product - don't you want to ensure the packaging in which it’s promoted is as good, if not better than what's inside? Successful commercialisation is the end point which every biopharma company strives for, but quite often packaging selection and design is overlooked or the last aspect to be considered.
