Phillips-Medisize today said that it acquired exclusive ownership of patents supporting a mini-tablet dispenser from Global Pharmaceutical Company.
The mini-tablet dispenser is mounted on top of a standard tablet bottle where a patient or caregiver can count and dispense mini-tablets in predetermined amounts from one to 20 tablets. It supports tablets sized 2×2 mm to 2.3×2.3 mm. The dispenser also allows users to visually confirm a measured tablet count before dispensing. It also reduces damage and crushing of tablets during dispensing.
