The UPCOS System’s Usability

The UPCOS system is a conventional coding Pharma system for licensed prescription and non-prescription medicines and drugs, pharmaceutical and chemical health products and all other medical products as well as biomedical and medical devices and instruments, etc.

Giving an UPCOS ID (International Drug ID-IDID / International Pharma ID-IPID) to every single pharmaceutical and medical product, biomedicine products, natural medicine products, hygienic-cosmetic products as well as universal and veterinary products, provides all health professionals, hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, healthcare providers, pharmaceutical and universal companies and corporations and all other medical and medicine-related institutions, organizations, associations, companies with a new, revolutionary universal identification coding that comprehensively informs all the parties involved in prescribing, using, dispensing, storing and transporting medicines, drugs, pharmaceutical and health products and all other medical products including medical devices, tools, appliances and instruments.
