What is the definition of Pharmaceutical?

The definition of pharmaceutical is something related to prescription drugs or pharmacies.

What are pharmaceutical drugs used for?

A pharmaceutical drug is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease. Drugs are classified in various ways. One of the key divisions is by level of control, which distinguishes prescription drugs from over-the-counter drugs. Another key distinction is between traditional small molecule drugs, usually derived from chemical synthesis, and bio pharmaceuticals, which include recombinant proteins, vaccines, blood products used therapeutically, gene therapy, and cell therapy. Other ways to classify medicines are by mode of action, route of administration, biological system affected, or therapeutic effects. An elaborate and widely used classification system is the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System.

Unusual uses for Masterflex Hoses

clear snake

How creative have you been with Masterflex hoses?

One student visited Masterflex for her college course as she wanted to travel to West Africa with a light weight, durable hose.

She managed to turn Flamex BF into a snake that moved freely, mimicking the movements of a real snake.

The overall aim was to carry out research on the relationship between monkeys and snakes in their natural environment.

Another student transformed a small length of Master PUR L into a robotic fish.
