Syringe and IV Bar Coding

State of Pharmacy Automation 2012 - Vol.9 No. 8 - Page #64

Very few facilities have adopted an automated approach for their preparation, rather, many facilities opt for flag or tadpole labeling systems, or purchase bar-coded products from a manufacturer. Additionally, 30% of facilities still take a purely manual approach. Due to the complexity and expense of an IV robot, implementation is not yet widespread, however, those that do have a robotic device are very pleased with their performance.
