Flexible, Accurate Dosing for Mini-tablets- Phillips-Medisize

In therapeutic areas such as pediatrics, oncology, and neurology, mini-tablets offer an opportunity for flexible dosing in a small, easily swallowed format.

However, for patients and caregivers, counting individual mini-tablets can be challenging. And for pharma companies, producing multiple individual doses for small patient populations can be expensive.

Phillips-Medisize introduces an innovative, market-ready Mini-tablet Dispenser that offers flexible, patient-friendly counting and dispensing directly from a standard primary tablet container.

Flexible Dosing:Enables patient-specific dosing for maximum benefit without adverse side effects

Easy-To-Use:Reduces time and energy to administer medication and improves accuracy and adherence

Practical Design:Fits on any standard prescription bottle and can be leveraged across multiple patient segments

Dispenser Setup

• Users can adjust the dispenser to their desired mini-tablet count. The dispenser’s preset remains set to this count until the user makes another adjustment. 

• Users unscrew the child-resistant prescription bottle cap, mount the dispenser onto the prescription bottle and reposition the cap.

Dispenser Use
  • To dispense medication, users unscrew the cap and invert the bottle, moving mini-tablets into the metering chamber. Users then turn the bottle upright and shake it gently.

• The correct number of mini-tablets automatically falls into the indentations on the counting disk. Excess mini-tablets fall back into the bottle, untouched by the user. 

• After users visually confirm a mini-tablet is in each indentation, they rotate the transparent metering chamber lid and pour out the mini-tablets.

• If more than 20 mini-tablets are required per dose, this sequence can be repeated. Total tablet count is then equally split between the 2 (or 3) repetitions.

• Once mini-tablets are dispensed, users close the transparent lid and screw the cap back onto the bottle.
