The Safer Options range of Controlled Drug Denature Kits which can help users safely manage waste medicines and comply with legislation more easily and effectively, is now available from Alpha Laboratories.
Manufactured in the UK, the kits are designed for simple and easy use. Waste medicines – tablets, liquids, patches etc. are placed in the jar with the water-soluble sachet of denaturing formula. Water is then added to the designated level and the jar closed and shaken to mix the denaturing formula with the water and controlled drugs.
The denaturing formula congeals and denatures the drugs within minutes. The kit can then be placed in a secure pharmaceutical waste container prior to incineration. The denaturing formula is contained in a sachet to protect against spillage, and has a bitter taste as an additional deterrent. Full instructions appear on every container.
Under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations (2001) obsolete controlled drugs must be destroyed by being denatured and rendered irretrievable before being placed into pharmaceutical waste containers. The kits enable hospitals, pharmacies, hospices, care homes and other healthcare providers to safely manage waste medicines and comply with this legislation.
The kits are available in six container volumes and a range of pack sizes. Please CLICK HERE for further information or contact Alpha Laboratories on 0800 38 77 32 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
