Denver, CO, December 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Baxa Corporation is featuring its new Rapid-Fill colored labels, along with the Productivity and Compliance Tools (PACT), Exacta-Mix Automated Compounders and Abacus Software during this week’s ASHP Mid-year Clinical Meeting (MCM). Featured products include the Rapid-Fill Automated Syringe Filler, the market leader for accurate and easy-to-use, automation for IV syringe batch filling. PACT products provide training and process efficiency to improve regulatory compliance and streamline pharmacy operations. Finally, the Exacta-Mix and Abacus products combine to offer a state-of-the-art system for automating multi-ingredient sterile solution compounding. In its 43rd year, the MCM takes place December 7 – 11, 2008 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
The Rapid-Fill System reduces pharmacy overhead for sterile syringe batching activities, while facilitating USP 797compliance and providing the opportunity for more adequate staff allocation and greater inventory control. Its new syringe labels – available in eight new colors (in addition to the original white) – allow customers to extend the system’s automation to broader applications in pharmacy syringe filling.
The PACT product line includes products and services designed to help pharmacies improve patient-care efficiencies and simplify compliance with state and federal regulations. Current products within the PACT line are the Skills Training, Academics and Resources (STAR) Center™, the MedBoard™ Medication Tracking System and the CriticalPoint™ online training modules.
Also featured in Baxa booth #2249 are the Exacta-Mix™ 2400 Automated Compounder and Abacus™ TPN Calculation Software. Market-leading Exacta-Mix Compounders are the only system that automates both macro and micro ingredient deliveries for parenteral solution compounding. Abacus is used for total parenteral nutrition (TPN) order entry and calculation. Designed by health-system pharmacists, the software reduces the opportunity for user error in the prescribing, calculating and mixing of multi-source solutions.
