Iâ€™m at the MEDICA World Forum for Medicine in DÃ¼sseldorf Germany this week. While I havenâ€™t seen much in the way of pharmacy related products, I did come across something that I thought was pretty cool. The brochure I grabbed said it was the â€œSharps Waste Eliminatorâ€ by GMP (Global Medi Products). However when I went to the GMP website for more information I couldnâ€™t find mention of it anywhere. A little creative Googling led me to the BMTS Corp site where I found the device I was looking for. Someone should have a talk with the marketing folks at GMP. Just sayinâ€™.
Anyway the Sharps Waste Eliminator (Demolizer II) is promoted as â€œthe only technology that allows you to safely dispose of both sharps and red bag waste right at your facility while saving you moneyâ€. I donâ€™t know what technology the product uses, but it turns sharps and other waste into an unrecognizable block resembling a brick made out of epoxy with all kinds of cool stuff on the inside. Seriously, it would make an awesome paperweight. I wish Iâ€™d thought to get a photo of it.
