The UC5500 ScriptStroyer Pharmacy Shredder was developed by Martin Yale Industries Inc to help pharmacies comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act guidelines for the destruction of patient information. At a speed of 10 feet per minute, its powerful blades can destroy every element of a patient’s prescription—including plastic vials, lids, adhesive labels, and all paper documents. The ScriptStroyer runs quietly and is small enough to fit under a pharmacy counter.
