Kirby Lester, LLC Announces New KL100 Midsized Dispensing Robot

Kirby Lester, LLC expanding its lineup of pharmacy automation with the new KL100 midsized dispensing robot. The KL100 brings a new level of efficiency and medication safety to higher volume retail/outpatient pharmacies and central fill facilities. 50% or more of a pharmacy's total daily orders can be easily handled by the KL100, while the unique "FillSafe" solution allows the pharmacist to completely control the security of the refill process. The KL100 employs the unique FillSafe security system during medication replenishment. FillSafe eliminates any chance of dispensing from a cassette that was not authorized by a pharmacist. FillSafe is an important advancement to an already safety-conscious system. Yet the KL100 never compromises speed and efficiency; orders are dispensed in about 30 seconds. The new KL100's unique features include: Midsized footprint fits most pharmacies (just 59"D x 29"W x 78"H). Automates the top 100 medications: up to 50% or more of a pharmacy's total daily orders. Fast, accurate cassettes never need recalibration. New FillSafe security system is a unique safeguard that eliminates any chance of dispensing from a cassette that was not authorized by a pharmacist. Fill, label and present complete orders in about 30 seconds. Accommodates several of the most popular vial types and sizes. Large vial bins hold more than one box of vials. Standard 110v power; no special wiring, floor supports or compressed air are needed. Simple installation, training and touch-screen operation. Maintenance takes just a few minutes per day. World-class 24/7 service and support. Full networking with Kirby Lester's KL20 and KL30 for a fully-integrated dispensing and verification system.
