Has there been studies done to show how much escape of drug exist with using the device?

During our quality testing of PP06 and PP05-02 Pill Pouches we found no medication or medication dust escapes if proper protocol is followed. Dissolved medication in solution also do not escape if protocol is followed. Protocol is described in the Pill Crusher Instruction flow chart on the "How to Use" page.

Vapor of volatile medicines are not contained after the syringe is detached from the pill pouch so vapors do escape.
Question was asked by Ngoc Nuygen, PharmD Lead Clinical Pharmacist BCPS from San Ramon Regional Medical Center.
