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.

Muslims around the world will be celebrating Eid al-Adha, which is one of the two most important festivals in the Muslim calendar.

The holiday, also known as the Feast of the Sacrifice or the Greater Eid, is distinct from Eid-al-Fitr, which was celebrated earlier this year.

In between the celebrations, why not increase your stocks of flexible hoses and ducting from Masterflex?

Simply let us know what is passing through the hose, the size and length you need, and your order could be with you the next day on stock items.

Clinical waste and waste incineration

Clinical waste and waste incineration

What is clinical waste and waste removal?

Definition:

Clinical waste consists of medical waste that could pose a threat to public health unless properly disposed of. It is a category of hazardous waste, and has to be collected under tightly controlled conditions and disposed of by incineration. It cannot be put with normal rubbish. The process is legally enforced by strict government regulations.

Clinical waste is defined in the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992. Any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research, or the collection of blood for transfusion, being waste which may cause infection to any person coming into contact with it.

It refers to any waste that consists wholly or partly of:

  • Human or animal tissue, blood or bodily fluids,
  • Dressings or swabs,
  • Unwanted medicines and other pharmaceutical products,
  • Used syringes, needles and blades (‘contaminated sharps’),
  • Excretions.

How should clinical waste be removed?

Clinical waste should be placed in secure clinical waste bins, Domestic Waste Bins, Sanitary Bins, Nappy Bins and Recycling Bins. There are various companies that manufacture products to suit this industry and take the contents of the bin away to be incinerated.

How can we help you remove your clinical waste?

Masterflex manufacture a range of durable hard wearing hoses that can can be used in the incineration process. If you are in the incineration industry and have requirements for flexible hose and ductings, we will be happy to hear from you.
