Kirby Lester's New KL60: The Pharmacy Industry's First and Only Compact, Fully-Automated Dispensing System
Date:7/27/2009

LAKE FOREST, Ill., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Kirby Lester, LLC, the world's leading pharmacy automation provider, today announced the pharmacy industry's first and only compact, fully-automated dispensing system. The new KL60 fulfills the long-unmet need for a system that handles all the functionality of a super-sized robotic dispenser, but in less space and at a fraction of the cost.

The KL60 is sized and priced for any retail pharmacy or hospital outpatient pharmacy that dispenses from 100 to 1,000+ prescriptions per day. At just 29" wide, 46" long and 78" high, the KL60 is only one-third to one-half the size of some older robotic dispensing technology.

The KL60 handles the labeling and filling of a pharmacy's top 60 medications - just the right amount of tablets and capsules without reaching a point of inefficiency. With 60 drug-specific cassettes aboard, there are no "slow movers" to expire in the device before they are dispensed, and stocking the KL60 is not prohibitively expensive. The 60 cassettes manage 30% or more of the orders in a typical retail pharmacy.

"The KL60 is such a big deal precisely because it's not big at all," says Christopher Thomsen, Kirby Lester's Vice President, Business Development. "Kirby Lester has figured out what the automation industry has been lacking for a decade. Sixty truly is a magic number for most mid- to high-volume retail pharmacies. By automating 60 medications - and not 150 or 200 - the KL60 makes full automation viable and economical for many more pharmacies.

"We spoke to many pharmacy chain executives before we officially announced the KL60, and every one of them was incredulous. They asked, 'Why didn't anyone do this sooner?'" Thomsen says.

The KL60 will be on prominent display at the NACDS Pharmacy & Technology Conference in Boston (August 8-11).
