Manchac Technologies has reported that it has reached the 100th sale of its DOSIS robotic system.
With 40 employees, Manchac builds the DOSIS in its 12,000-square-foot operation in the Central Louisiana Business Incubator. The manufacturing process requires roughly six months to assemble and deliver the 3,000 components in a finished product. U.S.-based suppliers produce all but a handful of the DOSIS parts.
According to Manchac's president and co-founder, Monroe Milton, "Our DOSIS product has quickly become the benchmark for accuracy and cost-effectiveness in institutional pharmacy operations." The DOSIS robot helps pharmacies serving nursing homes, group homes, and prisons automate 30% to 50% of their daily production.
The company, located in Alexandria, La., opened its doors in 2006 with three pharmacy automation engineers backed by local private investors. Through 2009, Manchac continued to develop its product and raise private equity.
