|ScriptPro Robotic System Gets Smaller Footprint||| Print ||
A sleek new addition to the ScriptPro line of robotic dispensing systems is the Compact Robotic System (CRS) that requires only seven square feet of floor space in the pharmacy. It is designed specifically for pharmacies with lower prescription volumes that want to take advantage of the operational efficiency and patient safety benefits offered through robotic dispensing.
The CRS is accessed from the front of the cabinet only, allowing the robot to be put against a wall or, if freestanding, shelving can be placed against the back and sides of the unit. The unit contains 75 universal dispensing cells, which are easily calibrated on-site by pharmacy staff, and has two bulk-load vial dispensers that can support a wide variety of vial types and sizes.
The CRS fills directly from the dispensing cell into the vial to avoid drug cross-contamination and airborne pill dust. "It uses the same dispensing technology and has the same look, feel, and user interface as our larger systems," says ScriptPro President and CEO Mike Coughlin. "It brings the full robotic solution to the middle and lower end of the pharmacy volume bell curve."
The CRS interfaces with pharmacy management systems and can fill and label up to 150 prescriptions an hour. It also uses barcodes for accuracy and quality control.
