Compounded preparations are at their greatest risk when they leave the custody of your pharmacy. The benefits of tamper-evident products to address this risk have been recognized within the standards and guidelines of multiple influential organizations including the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists and the FDA. USP <797> Guidelines advocate “the use of tamper-evident closures and seals on CSP ports can add an additional measure of security to ensure product integrity regardless of the transport method used.”
Tamper Evident products increase overall accountability in the chain of custody of mediation, maintain sterility, prevent leakage, ensure patients receive the full intended dose and reduce the risk of contamination. Experts agree that the use of tamper evident products increases the confidence of pharmacies, health care workers, and patients.
IMI’s Prep-Lock™ Line of products provide high-value, high-quality, tamper-evident closures devices for a variety of drug delivery containers, including IV, Enteral, & Oral Syringes, Medication Cassettes, and IV Bags.

Over 85% of the top 503B compounding facilities trust IMI Tamper Evident Caps to secure their preparations. Incorporating these caps for in-house preparations can provide standardization of all syringes throughout the hospital. As a result, clinicians will not need training for administering syringes with multiple tamper evident methods. Tamper Evident Caps help to ensure the integrity of your compounds by providing a visual indication of tampering, misuse, or access. Installation and administration are highly efficient. Each sterile tray of 10 includes a unique keyed feature that allows the pharmacist to install a cap with a simple twist of the syringe; helping to reduce the risk of touch contamination and enhance aseptic technique. To administer, simply pull off the outer sleeve of the tamper evident cap and unscrew the remaining luer lock cap.
