JHP Pharmaceuticals Launches New Multipack Presentations of Adrenalin®, Coly-Mycin® M and Pitocin®


7/6/2011 7:45:50 AM

PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- JHP Pharmaceuticals, a leading marketer and manufacturer of sterile injectable products, is launching larger pack sizes for three products commonly used in acute care clinical settings: Adrenalin® (epinephrine injection, USP), Coly-Mycin® M Parenteral (colistimethate sodium, USP) and Pitocin® (oxytocin injection, USP synthetic).

Stuart Hinchen, CEO and President of JHP noted, "The larger pack size was developed to meet customer demand for cost savings and increased pharmacy efficiency by reducing packaging waste. Our new multipacks allow pharmacy staff to open one carton containing multiple vials rather than open multiple cartons containing only one vial. The efficiency is critical in busy pharmacies handling high volume products such as Adrenalin®, Coly-Mycin® M and Pitocin® and the cost savings are significant."

Commenting on JHP's philosophy of marketing mature brand name products at competitive prices, Hinchen stated, "JHP is focused on meeting three key customer needs: quality, price and supply. Reducing packaging waste in high volume products is an example of how we stay price competitive without sacrificing quality. We are also vigilant in our efforts to provide the market with a reliable drug supply. Since we manufacture our products, we have the dexterity to adapt to changing market demand which is crucial in today's injectable market."

All three products are still available in single vial packs to meet the needs of smaller clinical settings. For more information about these products or other JHP products, please visit www.jhppharma.com/jhppricing and contact your local wholesaler or distributor.
