Biodose is available direct from your local Pharmacy and is delivered 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.

The tray contains patient information, including the option of an individual photograph, plus drug detail information and the name of the dispensing pharmacy. Each individual pod contains detailed information including patient name, date, time of day and individual drug details.

The tamper evident sealsusedon each pod ensure that the medication is kept securely with in the pod and ensures that liquids do not leak, even if the pod or tray is accidentally turned upside-down during transit or administration.

Once the tamper-evident seal has been peeled back, it will not stick down again, ensuring that the drugs contained are the same as what the Pharmacist intended. Therefore you can be sure that at the point of administration, the right drugs are being administered. This provides extra security and accountability needed in the care homesetting.

Because Biodose includes trays with the facility to include patient pictures, temporary staff will be confident in knowing that the right patient receives the right drugs.And, right from the moment that the pod seal is peeled back, drugs can be administered directly from the pod, making liquid administration very easy and removing the need for medicine cups.
