i.v.STATION 2 is Health Robotics’ dual-use IV Robot to deliver “Totally Automated Parenteral Nutrition” in addition to non-hazardous IVs.
This 2014 project leapfrogs the status-quo of TPN Automation (6, 9, 10, 12, or 24-channel partially-automated devices from companies such as Baxter, Neocare, Fresenius, B|Braun, and Baxa) to a new level of TPN CPOE software-machine integration (including the multi-language features lacking in today’s global market).
In addition to all the patient safety features existing on i.v.STATION, i.v.STATION 2 supports up to 34 ingredients/medications (so Pharmacy Technicians do not need to manually add ingredients); automatic priming of the IV lines; automatic labeling of the I.V. Bags (to reduce manual errors and labor costs in the labeling process); gravimetric control of every ingredient; automated powder reconstitution; Bar-Code recognition of source-ingredient containers (to eliminate source-ingredient error); automatic waste system; an ISO-Class 5 sealed chamber [including overnight UV-lamps sterilization] that can enable Health-System Pharmacists to compound safe TPNs with greater sterility than traditional TPN pumps in LAFs; simultaneously filling 20 I.V. Bags without operator assistance.
