Centred Solutions UK, the leading provider of fully automated, high-speed pharmacy dispensing systems, is running ‘live’ demonstrations of its scalable robotic labelling and packing system, including ‘put to light’ capability, on Stand PD11 at this year’s Pharmacy Show.
Specifically developed to increase the accuracy and speed of prescription dispensing, Centred Solutions’ Intelligent Prescription Processing (IPP) automated systems are suitable for independent pharmacies, regional groups and large international chains. Two configurations are currently available: IPP-M1 and IPP-M3, featuring a single print module and three print modules respectively.
IPP-M1 is a single labelling module, semi-automated, original pack labelling system and manual sort and pack capability. Items are singulated on a belt, scanned and the patient label is applied automatically, then sorted per patient using visual put to light system. Completed scripts are then packed using visual pick by light system. Each stage is fully validated.
Colin Hardy, Managing Director, Centred Solutions, says: “We have brought to market a selection of world-class script fulfilment solutions that are changing the way prescriptions are dispensed by pharmacies. What’s so great about IPP-M1 is its appeal to a broader range of pharmacy groups, making script automation accessible to all budgets.”
IPP-M1 is a semi-automated, original pack labelling solution with manual sort and pack capability. The system’s reduced footprint allows customers the flexibility to accommodate the automated, robotic labelling system in locations where space is limited or demand is lower.
Gill Collins, Head of Business Development, Centred Solution, adds: “IPP-M1 is a game-changer for pharmacies. It is capable of running at 25 packs per minute and has the capacity to process in excess of 600 thousand scripts per annum, or over two million script items per year on a five-day single shift operation.
“IPP-M1‘s smart, integrated, high-resolution vision capability captures each unique order. Images of individual packs are recorded ensuring validation through scan, label, sort and pack. This allows operators and auditors to track each pack at every stage of the process. Operators also visually check each pack using our proprietary QA/QC software, managing any exceptions that need to be relayed to stores.”
Centred Solutions UK has entered into a partnership with RxSafe LLC, a US provider of pharmacy automation systems. Under the agreement, Centred Solutions becomes the exclusive distributor of RapidPakRx™ in the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union.
RapidPakRx enables pharmacies to run a 28-day med cycle at the lowest possible cost, producing single or multi-med pouches with unprecedented accuracy and efficiency.
Todd Siegel, CEO says: “Centred Solutions is excited to introduce the transformational technology of the RapidPakRx to European markets. The system’s small footprint and universal cartridges address the space limitations and constantly changing formularies that have limited expansion of pouch machines in many areas of the EU market.
“ The added features of integrated machine vision, just-in-time workflow process and dynamically changing pouch size add to the uniqueness of the technology. We look forward to a product launch in the first quarter of 2020 and adding Europe to RapidPakRx’s successful launch in the US.”
