What you can expect to see from DS Medical?
DS Medical will be showcasing a range of high-quality medical products, including 5.11 Tactical gear, bags and our own high-quality medical products. We also have a revolutionary new product which we are introducing to the industry, the CD Destructor Kit – for the complete destruction of controlled drugs.
How does the DS Medical CD Destructor Kit work?
Most main brand denaturing kits only encapsulate the drug, rather than destroying it, meaning it can be retrieved and abused by anyone. In the UK, there is extensive legislation which helps support the safe supply, use and disposal of controlled drugs.
As part of this legislation, ambulance trusts, pharmacies, hospitals, surgeries and private practices must have designated Controlled Drug Accountable Officers (CDAOs) who ensure appropriate procedures are in place for the disposal of controlled drugs. Until now, many of these procedures would include a denaturing kit, however clinical studies carried out at The University of Hertfordshire demonstrated that these kits only encapsulated the drug and still had over 75% of the drug remaining 48 hours after disposal. The new DS Medical CD Destructor Kit had less than 2% of the concentrated drug remaining!
The CD Destructor Kit contains active ingredients, including a chlorinating agent that breaks down the chemical bonds and an activated carbon that soaks up the broken-down chemicals, making them irretrievable. To ensure the kit is completely traceable in the case of an investigation, each kit has a unique identifier code.
Our new kit is available in a range of sizes to suit your needs, from 30ml up to 2L containers. If you require a large size, then get in touch with our team and they will be happy to discuss a bespoke solution.
