KL100 Midsized Dispensing Robot

Marketed by: Kirby Lester
Kirby Lester has expanded its line of automation products with its KL100 midsized dispensing robot. The 59-inch-deep, 29-inch-wide, and 78-inch-high robot is smaller than most other pharmacy robots to fit easily in existing pharmacy floor plans, while also allowing a pharmacy to automate 100 of its top-moving tablets and capsules. Orders are filled, dispensed, and labeled in about 30 seconds. The KL100 uses Kirby Lester’s FillSafe system to eliminate the chance of dispensing an unauthorized cassette.
