Storage and Retrieval System from ScriptPro

The Storage and Retrieval System (SRS) manufactured by ScriptPro offers a solution for automating and organizing pharmacy’s will call process. A single SRS automatically stores prescription will call bags within its secure cabinet while occupying a modest footprint. By using barcode controls, SRS efficiently retrieves the correct prescription(s), ensuring patient safety. The enclosed cabinet eliminates open access to prescriptions in storage and tracks user access, extending the chain of control over medications until they are dispensed to the patient. This increased controlled access to batches containing CIIs-CVs as well as unscheduled drugs furthers drug accountability and security. Offering simplicity and efficiency, a single unit optimizes storage capacity and labor productivity. With easy installation and comprehensive training, ScriptPro’s SRS minimizes the need for staff interaction, helping to save staff time.

The medication database contains precise measurements for common NDCs, and any cassette will auto-adjust and lock in while docked in the KL-SR Cassette Station. Moreover, cassettes have a dual-lock security feature to prevent unauthorized access.
