WAKE FOREST, N.C. — RxMedic Systems has introduced a new pharmacy robot, the RM200, which is engineered to use exclusive TriMaxx triangular vials.
The pharmacy automation provider, a subsidiary of JM Smith Corp., said the RM200 builds on the innovation of previous releases, including RM64 and ADS, while offering new features for pharmacies. The robot fills two prescriptions a minute, utilizes auto-calibrating cell technology and enables users to replenish vials by pouring them directly from the box into the hopper.
“RM200 has been designed to further enhance efficiency and productivity. This pharmacy robot takes the best of existing features and then goes further. We have engineered the RM200 to work with conventional vials as well as be able to fill prescriptions into unique triangular vials,” stated David Williams, vice president of RxMedic Systems, citing Tri State Distribution’s TriMaxx vials.
“The TriMaxx vial is becoming a popular choice for pharmacists, but until now pharmacies typically had to choose between automation and TriMaxx,” he added. “RM200 can successfully use these vials, providing pharmacists with a robotic solution.”
RxMedic’s RM200 will be showcased at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Total Store Expo, which runs August 22 to 25 in Denver.
“Tri State Distribution is proud to be associated with RxMedic, and we’re very excited that they’ve engineered the RM200 to use our exclusive TriMaxx container system,” commented Joe Miceli, president of Tri State Distribution. “Combining the powerful patient communication and promotional features of the TriMaxx system with a 200-cell automated dispensing system gives pharmacies a unique opportunity to use automation to help build their business as well as to streamline it.”
“From our vantage point, RxMedic is a wonderful company to work with. We know our customers will appreciate their positive commitment to excellence when they choose RxMedic for their pharmacy automation needs,” said Dave Miceli, Vice President, Tri State Distribution. “Their engineering team worked tirelessly to adapt the RM200 to work with the unique triangular shape of the TriMaxx container, illustrating the ‘can-do’ attitude that RxMedic brings to the pharmacy automation market.”
