Careousel Pill dispensers incorporate BioCote, a silver ion technology to protect against harmful microbes.
BioCote® technology makes the dispenser inherently more hygienic and addresses a potential problem within carousel medication delivery: cross contamination. Crucially, the devices are now easier to keep hygienically clean for the patients, their family and visiting carers, plus pharmacists and their staff who are all regularly handling the device.
The new dispensers have demonstrated reductions of over 99.9%, and set the bar even higher for the medication management market.
How well does BioCote® antimicrobial protection work?
BioCote® protection is permanent, it provides built in protection for the expected lifetime of the dispenser.
BioCote® provides continuous, around the clock protection against microbial colonisation.
BioCote® has been proven to reduce the number of bacteria on a protected product by as much as 80% in 15 minutes and 99.5% in just 2 hours.
BioCote® has been proven to reduce the presence of microbes on a protected product by up to 99.99%
BioCote® additives or products containing them do not cause antibiotic resistant bacteria.
