CRT Controlled Drugs Cabinets

Controlled Drugs Cabinets with CRT Room Temperature Control

Here at Pharmacy Medical, we are proud to present, in conjunction with QED Scientific, the first fully compliant cooled controlled drugs cabinets.

Like any medicine, controlled drugs can start to degrade if they are stored at temperatures above or below the range specified by the manufacturer. Controlled Drugs usually have a specified storage temperature of ‘between 15°C and 25°C’ or ‘below 25°C’.

The only way to do this is to use a temperature controlled cabinet. The cabinets you see here incorporate CRT temperature control and fully compliant controlled drugs cabinets.

Gone are the days of incorrectly fitting a CD cabinet into a conventional fridge. This past approach was filled with issues, namely correctly securing the CD cabinet to the wall and legislation regarding the keys. Furthermore, merely placing a conventional CD cabinet into a fridge did not create the correct airflow for efficient cooling of the contents. The cabinets you see on this page solve all those problems.
