Automatically and precisely split tablets with the BullsEye Tablet Splitter. Manual splitting is often times inaccurate, and in many circumstances can ruin a medication by crumbling it. The BullsEye uses canisters that are individually calibrated for each specific medication to be split in half. The process is simple: barcode scan the canister or medication bottle, enter the quantity to be split, and the device will then accurately split the medication.
Patients have been known to cut their tablets into halves;however, cutting tablets in half is risky if not done correctly. A recent research study found that when elderly patients split their doses, the doses deviated 9-37% from those intended. The study warned that “while an approximate deviation of 10% may not be clinically significant, the larger deviations in this study could be hazardous” in some cases.
