Improve drug administration and benefit from Biodose’s built in Biocote protection, helping to prevent MRSA.

Using Biodose

Delivered direct from local HBS pharmacy in convenient patient packs containing a tray with 28 individual tamper-evident medicine pods. Every pod is pre-sealed into the tray and can be easily removed from the tray without affecting the individual tamper-evident pod seal.

Tamper-evident seals

The tamper evident seals used on each pod ensure that the medication is kept securely within the pod and ensures that liquids do not leak, even if the pod or tray is turned upside down during transit or administration.

Once peeled, the seal will not stick down again ensuring the drugs are used as the Pharmacist intended. This way you can be sure that at the point of administration, the right drugs are being administered providing extra security and accountability.

Trays include patient pictures so even temporary staff will be confident in knowing the right patient receives the correct medication. Once the pod is peeled the drug can be administered immediately removing the need for cups.
