When simple tablet counters aren’t enough, and robotic dispensers are too much, Kirby Lester’s KL30 is the ideal middle-point in pharmacy automation. Use the KL30 to dispense and verify 100% of your pharmacy’s total orders, and save time and steps with high-speed cassettes for your most frequently dispensed tablets and capsules. The KL30 is based on the KL20 “next-generation” device. And it is perfect for 90-day fills, especially when coupled with a pharmacy robot. With the KL30, you can efficiently dispense large orders like 270 tabs of metformin 1,000mg.
- Fully Automate 25-30% of Your Orders – The KL30 automates the dispensing of 100% of all oral solids with the combination cassette & pour-through methods. Using up to 30 cassettes on the KL30, for instance, will automate the counting of 25-30% of the orders in a typical retail pharmacy. In contrast, most robotic dispensers automate 40-55% of orders, at a cost of 7-10 times the cost of a KL30.
- Hands-Free Dispensing – a Kirby Lester First! – Save time and labor by dispensing your high-frequency tablets using drug-specific cassettes; for all others, simply pour tablets into the funnel to count. It is just the right amount of automation for most pharmacies.
- Automate What Makes Sense: Order as many cassettes as you need, from 1 to 100 cassettes. Add more cassettes later to suit your dispensing needs. Ideal for your highest movers, 90-day fills and narcotics.
- Double-Count Accuracy – Every cassette-dispensed tablet is counted twice: first when tablets are dispensed from the cassette; and second, as the tablets fall through the Kirby Lester. Uses the renowned Kirby Lester counting technology that’s trusted worldwide to count 5 million prescriptions each day.
- 90-day fills: – The KL30 is perfect for large medications commonly dispensed as 90-day fills (e.g., metformin, potassium chloride). The technician can multi-task while the KL30’s hands-free cassettes quickly count to 90, 180, 270 or 380. The built-in vial size indicator alerts the technician to choose the perfect sized vial for the order, and replenishing cassettes can be done quickly. The KL30 makes an ideal tandem to your pharmacy robot: Store the smaller tablets in your robot, and bigger tablets and 90-day meds in the KL30.
- High-Speed, Accurate Cassettes – 650cc capacity. Encoded and shaped for specific medications to prevent dispensing errors. Fast operation. Simple to fill, handle and maintain. Optional high-volume cassettes hold more than 3x the volume (2,200cc).
- Workflow Software – built-in workflow software can be turned on/off as you need it – at no extra charge.
- 100% verification for processing all orders – The KL30 enables the pharmacy to verify the dispensing of 100% of all medications, not just oral solids.
- Innovation in a small package – Fits on a countertop and needs no remodelling (only 21.0″ high x 12.5″ wide).
- User-friendly – simple to install and learn.
