MethaMeasure is an automated Methadone dispensing system.

The MethaMeasure system was designed and engineered in the UK for the UK market and is perfectly suited for dispensing Methadone in all scenarios. Our machines accurately and safely
dispense in excess of 6 million doses of Methadone a year.

The MethaMeasure dispensing system is designed to:

  • Be intuitive, simple to use with integration options available
  • Positively identify each patient by fingerprint and picture ensuring the correct patient gets the correct dose
  • Increase patient safety by improving accuracy and reducing errors by alerting the user if there are missed doses, dose changes etc.
  • Reduce dispensing and administration time required to provide this service hence maximising staff time to increase patient numbers or provide additional value add services to clientele thus improving profitability
  • Automatically create a Methadone CD register which can be used stand alone or integrated into CDRx
  • Reduce consumption of single use plastic bottles by encouraging daily supervised doses to be dispensed into a paper cup therefore reducing costs and improving your carbon footprint

“The MethaMeasure system basically does what it says on the tin. We had a trial period and we haven’t looked back since. The system has proved to be very saving. I would go as far as to say it has reduced my spend by 100%. The helpline and service provided by the company has also been first class.”  – Alan Moffat, Craigneuk and Petersburn Pharmacy
“The MethaMeasurem system basically works itself and is more accurate. We do a lot of Methadone dispensing here and knew the MethaMeasure system would save us a considerable amount of time. We are really pleased with it so far; it’s certainly freed up more of my time” – Laura Alon, Methadone Dispenser
“The best feature is the speed, by far. Normally in the morning if we were to measure it out it would probably take maybe a minute to measure each person, and then having the pharmacists to check it may lead to errors. With MethaMeasure once we calibrate it in the morning, which only takes a minute to do, it makes it a lot quicker.” – Wendy Williams, Dell Pharmacy
“CDRx allows us to record CD entries electronically, with prompts for balance checks with every entry in and out. This makes it much easier, and less time consuming, to monitor running balances and quickly identify discrepancies. The time saved with this, as opposed to a paper-based system, is significant and combined with Methameasure, certainly contributes to the profitability of our business. A fantastic support team to back it all up is the icing on the cake!”- Stuart Hermiston, Area Manager, Weldricks
