Kirby Lester, LLC, the leading pharmacy automation provider, announced its KL1Plus medication dispensing device includes streamlined functionality to perform a trackable double-count for any prescription coming out of a vial-filling robot.

Since a double-count of controlled medications is required, the KL1Plus allows a retail pharmacy or hospital pharmacy to quickly perform a second count of any tablet or capsule order. The KL1Plus stores an archived record of the second count up to 10 years. This function is ideal for any pharmacy that dispenses controlled medications or expensive medications through any robot, such as the Kirby Lester KL60 or KL100 pharmacy robot.

"The KL1Plus's trackable double-count is a pharmacy's safety net against counting errors or customer complaints," says Dave Johnson, Kirby Lester's Vice President of Sales. "Regardless of what brand of robot a pharmacy uses, the KL1Plus enhances that pharmacy's defenses. A pharmacy makes a huge investment with a robot; adding a KL1Plus is minimal comparatively, and with it you've closed the loop: 100% of your orders are verified, counted and archived with automation."

Kirby Lester will showcase the KL1Plus at upcoming Q3 trade shows including Cardinal Health Retail Business Conference (National Harbor, MD), National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS, Boston), North Carolina Mutual Annual (Myrtle Beach, SC) and Morris & Dickson M.A.D. Days of Summer (Austin, TX).

For any pharmacy --with or without robotics -- a KL1Plus is used to verify and count all orders dispensed in the pharmacy, whether in tablets, capsules or unit-of-use form. The KL1Plus ensures that 100% of the time, the patient receives the right medication, dosage and quantity.
