New Packaging Option for Sterile Ophthalmic Dispensing Bottles

EPS has released a new 10-pack configuration for all 4 sizes of its Steri-Dropper® sterile ophthalmic dispensing containers.

Ophthalmic compounding, and dispensing can be an expensive, highly technical task. According to Medi-Dose/EPS, sterility and medication integrity must be vigilantly maintained. To help practitioners control costs when preparing sterile solutions—in adherence with USP <797> and other guidelines—EPS has released a new 10-pack configuration for all 4 sizes of its Steri-Dropper® sterile ophthalmic dispensing containers.

Medi-Dose/EPS has been working with pharmacists to develop cost-effective solutions that promote medication safety and error prevention for more tthan 40 years. The company's new 10-pack features an ergonomically designed tray with each of the components (bottles, tips, and caps) separated for convenience, according to a press release. All 4 bottle sizes, in both the original 2-pack or new 10-pack design, are manufactured from a special zinc stearate-free resin that minimizes the risk of particulate forming in solutions with certain ophthalmic preparations.

“Sterile compounding, and dispensing have become ever more important in daily pharmacy and nursing practice. Strict attention to guidelines like USP <797> are essential," said Bob Braverman, President of Medi-Dose/EPS, in a statement. “Whether pharmacists prepare just a few doses of an ophthalmic med, or are engaged in larger scale production, our Steri-Dropper bottles help health care practitioners efficiently and economically comply with these guidelines."
