Learn About Mini
Spend less time counting by fives — and more time providing the kind of patient care that inspired you to become a pharmacist.
Why Choose Mini?
Go Big on Productivity
Don’t let the “Mini” fool you. This mighty machine is small on space, but big on productivity. Parata Mini counts pills as quickly and accurately as our Parata Max. Its name just hints at its smaller footprint and price tag. With Mini counting for you, your pharmacy team gets some relief from the everyday hustle, and you’re free to focus on growing your business and providing true patient care.
Increase Your Efficiency
Parata Mini sets new benchmarks for speed, filling an average prescription in just a few seconds. Mini supports 44 NDCs and automates up to 30 percent of your total prescription volume. Mini’s smart, two-sided design separates inventory from dispensing — so you can replenish drugs while Mini continues to complete prescriptions.
Put Safety First
When proper processes are followed, Parata Mini is 100 percent accurate for drug and dose.1 Each cell contains a unique barcode, which is scanned during restocking to ensure a match with the stock bottle. The barcode also enables Mini to identify a cell and its contents from any location in the unit, so Mini always dispenses the correct drug.
Choose Locking Cells For Added Security
Designed to maximize safety and prevent diversion, our optional, patented locking cells automatically lock when closed and stay locked if they are removed from Mini. Cells are replenished while in the unit, one at a time, and open only when an authorized user verifies a barcode match between a stock bottle and a cell.
1 Parata automation uses barcoding to verify a match between the inventory bottle NDC, unique to medication and strength, and the barcode on the dispensing cell. Parata automation selects the correct cell for dispensing 100 percent of the time, ensuring accurate drug and total dosage when proper processes are followed by the pharmacy.
