<a href=”http://www.innovat.com”>Innovation</a>, makers of PharmASSIST® pharmacy automation solutions, has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with
<a href=”http://www.imanorthamerica.com.”>IMA North America</a>. The nonexclusive agreement will enable Innovation to integrate IMA’s Model 3410-DRS EKC Automatic Pill Counter with the company’s high-volume pharmacy systems for central-fill and mail-order pharmacies.
<br>“Helping the industry’s central fill and mail order facilities achieve their prescription throughput and patient safety goals is one of our top priorities. Our partnership with IMA for use of their EKC technology helps take our high-volume systems to yet another level of quality and productivity,” said Tom Boyer, COO, Innovation. “We’re looking forward to integrating the EKC system into our highest volume customer sites to take advantage of the technology’s tremendous accuracy, automated replenishment, and extremely fast counting rate.”
<br>“We believe this partnership offers the industry the best of both worlds: IMA’s expertise in tablet counting technology and Innovation’s proven track record with fully integrated, high-volume systems, said Chris Comeau, automated pharmacy product manager, IMA North America. “Working together, we can provide high-volume pharmacy production sites with high-speed dispensing specifically tailored to their unique requirements.”
<br>The 3410-DRS EKC is a high-speed counting device for automated pharmacy applications and forms part of an integrated tablet counting and filling system in which a central controller commands multiple EKC units. The latest iteration of the EKC provides the highest possible counting accuracy and is virtually immune to pill dust. The system’s canister replenishment technology helps achieve continuous operation, high prescription throughput, and complete accuracy in replenishing inventory.
