has announced that it has initiated the development of a new pharmacy automation device that will allow for the filling of unit-dose and
multidose cards
, in addition to the pouch packaging that TCGRx is already well-known for. The device, known as the PillBot, with the
ability to package medication in both pouch and blister formats, is scheduled for release this year.

“The market is constantly evolving for
our pharmacy partners. They need flexibility to provide packaging options that will gain and retain business without the need to invest in
multiple automation devices,” says TCGRx President and CEO Duane Chudy. “Our vision is two-fold; we want to provide best-in-class automation and services for everything that a pharmacy needs to fill medications. We also want to make sure that our pharmacy partners can thrive in an ever-changing market.”
