A popular medicine in more primitive societies that do not have access to personal medical system technology. Designed as a charity effort by various groups of Sephirotic modosophonts, in appearance an omnimed capsule is a small white pill. Observation under a microscope would reveal a tightly packed lattice of microcapsules containing generalist medicytes. When taken orally this lattice breaks up; some microcapsules are absorbed through the soft tissue of the mouth whilst others migrate out of the harsh environment of the digestive system and release their payload. The medicytes can differentiate into a complex ecology of specialised breeds capable of carrying out a wide variety of treatments.

A sufficient quantity of omnimed can cure almost any non-emergency malady a biont might suffer. In effect omnimed provides a temporary medisystem. Hence the expression in some societies 'an omni a day keeps the doctor away!'.
