TCGRx, the industry leading supplier of pharmacy automation, announced at the Cardinal Retail Business Conference (RBC) today, that they have released the ATP 2, a next generation and revolutionary new Automated Tablet Packaging system. Signaling unparalleled advances in pharmacy automation, the ATP 2 allows pharmacies to run leaner than ever before—reducing labor and operating costs. Intelligently designed, the system provides continuous operation while emphasizing redundancy and uptime for optimal efficiency.
Strip packaging and adherence packaging is becoming more commonplace in the U.S. market and as a result, products and services need to evolve to accommodate the increase in volume and demands for new features. According to Duane Chudy, CEO of TCGRx, “the ATP 2 leverages a solid engineering foundation while pioneering the next set of features that pharmacies need to capture and improve compliance among at-risk patients while still improving their bottom line.” Mr. Chudy went on to explain that, “the ATP 2 delivers on a customer friendly adherence package referred to as ‘AdherePac™.’ The unique package can be printed with color indicators to signify the proper pass times, images of pills, and even reminder bags for non-oral solids such as inhalers.”
The ATP 2 is based on the most successful design of packaging automation in the pharmacy market, which lends itself to reliability. Matt Noffsinger, SVP of Business Development and Sales at TCGRx, stated that “it is unique to be able to release a product that has such a strong foundation yet has such revolutionary features. Our customers can now operate with limitless canister automation, they can run ½-tablets through the machine, and they can run continuously without stops for refilling trays. This really does deliver the solution needed to make strip packaging and adherence packaging practical for any pharmacy.”
The new ATP 2 is available in a variety of sizes and is expandable for future growth or business needs. The product offers a variety of different pouch sizes that fit acute care settings as well as long-term care and retail. The ATP 2 integrates with the comprehensive suite of pharmacy solutions offered by TCGRx including a fully automated imaging and verification system, the InspectRx®. The InspectRx ensures the quality of the packaging process and reduces the labor associated with checking. The Collector™ automates the collation process by automatically separating each patient strip and rolling it to prepare it for delivery. TCGRx has built custom solutions to scale this process to handle more than 20,000 scripts per day.
