Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
Swisslog, a leader in providing pharmacy automation and material transport solutions for hospitals, now offers high-speed tablet packaging solutions for hospitals through an agreement with TCGRx, a provider of automation medication management products and services based in Powers Lake, WI.
Through the agreement, Swisslog will provide hospitals with an automated medication management solution that can include high-speed packaging and automated drug storage and retrieval through Swisslog's BoxPicker.
Swisslog will be promoting the ATP-Series automatic tablet packager, offering easy filling and refilling of medications with high-speed dispensing of both narrow cabinet packaging and wider multi-dose packaging, as well as flexible printing and barcode options. A unique Fill-to-Light tray system promotes packaging accuracy for the hospital's slow moving items. One compact unit is configurable from 256 to 384 canisters to suit the needs of all hospital sizes. Swisslog also offers a compact table top packager, capable of holding up to 71 canisters. Both packagers have a high dispensing speed of up to 60 bags per minute.
The high-speed packager is complimentary with Swisslog's BoxPicker - a high-density automated medication storage and retrieval system that is analogous to a vertical carousel. Unlike carousels, BoxPicker has single-opening/loading drawers for secure access, no exposed moving parts for user safety and a picking rate that is far faster than carousels. In addition, this system can include a refrigeration compartment and can support USP 797 by providing product access to an ante room/clean room environment for compounding. BoxPicker offers total inventory control software that directly interfaces with hospital information systems.
