Regulations require that expired/discontinued medications be destroyed to prevent unauthorized distribution, diversion or unauthorized use. Typical drugs and their packaging include tablets, capsules, granules and liquids in conjunction with their associated pill bottles, caps, vials, ampules, blister packs, and unit dosing packages.

No matter the particular type of drug and packaging utilized, the destruction of expired/discontinued drugs is subject to strict accountability. Normally accomplished by nurses, pharmacists or other authorized personnel, removing individual pills/capsules from multiple-dose blister packs before destroying is obviously time consuming and wasteful of their professional expertise. This drug shredding machine offers the industry an efficient, safe and highly accountable solution to this problem.
