Methameasure has selected the M500 ac pump from Verder for methadone dosing.

A supervised methadone dosing service for recovering drug addicts is available in pharmacies, rehabilitation centres and prisons, allowing the patient to receive his or her prescribed daily medication as a single dose taken in the presence of a pharmacist, therapist or prison officer.

Dispensing methadone manually is a relatively high-risk, costly and time-consuming procedure.

Methameasure addresses this issue by providing a fast and automatic method of administering methadone.

The dispensing system, housed in a compact cabinet, initially identifies the patient by fingerprint.

A pump then measures the appropriate dose of methadone for the patient to drink and a record of the event is automatically saved.

The Verder M500 ac model used is suitable for a variety of applications including vending, chemical dosing and condensate removal.

It has a flow rate of up 730ml/min.

No internal backflow on the Verder M500 OEM pump ensures accurate dosing without slip, providing repeatability of +/-0.2 per cent and a metering capability of +/-2 per cent.

This performance meets the stipulations of both the Weights and Measures Act and the new Medicines Act.

Avoiding contamination is key but, as the Verder OEM peristaltic pumps are based on a patented, seal-less design, only the tube comes into contact with the medication.

The tube itself was also selected to be resistant to the acidity of the methadone and the simplicity of the pump design facilitates the exchange of the tube in the field.

Verderflex® peristaltic hose pumps and tube pumps are the ideal solution for pumping liquids and dosing chemicals. Ranging from smaller Original Equipment Manufacture (OEM) pumps to the world’s largest hose pumps used in very heavy industrial applications.

Verderflex® peristaltic hose and tube pumps are used in many industries including: water and wastewater, mining, food & beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, printing and packaging.

Verder’s peristaltic tube and hose pumps can pump abrasive, highly corrosive, viscous, high density and shear sensitive products.
