A BETTER WAY TO MANAGE
The Big Risks of Small Molecules

Fast onsite chemical digestion of controlled substance wastage can lower costs, simplify handling processes, and reduce exposure to drug related risks of diversion, non-compliance, and environmental contamination.

Compatible drug wastage added to SafeMedWaste is immediately rendered non-retrievable, and fully destroyed in as little as 2 hours.*

*Destruction takes 2-24hrs for liquid wastage and up to 72hrs for solid wastage depending on drug state, type, volume, concentration, and combinations.

REAL CHANGE

Onsite disposal products that bond, adsorb, or sequester drug wastage often lack sufficient scientific data to support broad reaching claims of permanent and irreversible non-retrievability, drug destruction, and safety in the landfill environment.  Risk-averse registrants frequently rely on offsite incineration for molecular destruction of their treated and untreated wastage. This more lengthy and complex process can result in a greater window of exposure to drug-related risks, and higher costs.

SafeMedWaste is scientifically proven to provide safe, complete, onsite molecular destruction of controlled substance wastage, without incineration.  Real onsite chemical digestion that can take your drug wastage from active to non-existent in 72 hours or less.

Real Science

SafeMedWaste is a patented chemical digestion technology that quickly destroys the primary molecular bonds commonly found in most controlled substances. When used as directed, SafeMedWaste delivers reliable onsite destruction performance across a wide range of controlled substances.

The byproduct of the destruction process is pH-neutral, non-hazardous, no longer effective in humans and animals, and presents no risk of drug leaching in the landfill environment.  The solidified waste contains no remnants, analogues, or derivatives that could be used to resynthesize the drug.

Fast, sustainable, onsite destruction just got real.

Real Results

When it comes to generating reliable and meaningful test data, not all test types or methods are created equally. That is why Okra Medical chose a well-recognized, independent, DEA-licensed laboratory to develop and execute a test plan that could ensure the safety and destruction efficacy of SafeMedWaste. Every controlled substance on the SafeMedWaste list of compatible drugs has successfully completed this stringent testing process.

Detailed test methods and results are available upon request to qualified interested parties. Test data includes results of HPLC-MS/MS and/or HPLC-DAD, TCLP, Method 1040, and Off-gassing studies.
