Baxa Corporation Introduces ExactaMix™ 1200 Automated Compounder for Sterile, Multi-Ingredient Solutions
Date:11/9/2010

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation, a leading provider of medical devices and systems that automate pharmacy operations, today introduced the ExactaMix 1200 Automated Compounding Device (ACD) for small- to mid-sized hospital pharmacies in need of an automated approach to compounding large-volume parenteral doses.  The entry-level 12-port compounder extends the market-proven Baxa ExactaMix Product Line and brings delivery precision and safe handling to pharmacies that want the compounding safety and efficiency that automation offers, but don't require the full range of the ExactaMix 2400 Compounder's capabilities.  The new ExactaMix 1200 will be exhibited next month at the 2010 American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting (MCM) & Exhibition.

The ExactaMix products automatically compound sterile doses, minimizing the risk of measurement errors, wrong drug selection, touch contamination and patient infection in the preparation of solutions for TPN, cardioplegia, dialysis and epidural delivery.  Capable of volumes as low as 0.2 mL, the new ExactaMix 1200 safely and accurately delivers both micro and macro ingredients. The ExactaMix 1200 and ExactaMix 2400 are the only ACDs with both volumetric delivery and gravimetric check, enabling pharmacists to ensure accuracy with both volume and fill data.

State-of-the-art Baxa compounding technology delivers final bag accuracies within +/- 4% with barcode ingredient verification, and pumps a typical three-liter nutrition bag in approximately 3.5 minutes -- nearly two times faster than industry average.  Its features improve compounding efficiency, enabling pharmacy professionals to focus on patient care with the confidence that safety, regulatory compliance and preparation accuracy goals are met.

"The ExactaMix 1200 dispels the myth that only large healthcare facilities and hospitals can take advantage of the safety and efficiency of proven, cutting-edge automated compounding technology," said Laura Zoerner, Senior Product Manager at Baxa Corporation.  "With the addition of the 12-port compounder, we now offer a wider range of solutions with globally recognized ExactaMix Technology. Now virtually any hospital can afford automated compounding for therapies such as TPN, cardioplegia and dialysis and epidural solutions to achieve both accuracy and speed -- while maintaining USP <797> compliance and delivering exactly right doses."

In its 45th year, the MCM takes place December 5 – 9, 2010 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.  In addition to ExactaMix 1200, Baxa will showcase its extensive line of solutions that efficiently and safely deliver more than 450,000 doses each day, including its DoseEdge™ Pharmacy Workflow Management System.  Over 5 million doses have been processed by DoseEdge in US hospitals to date.  DoseEdge has prevented more than 100,000 preparation errors through barcode verification of every ingredient drug and best-practice compounding process management.  To view technical videos or download educational materials on FormularyPlus enhancements for DoseEdge, visit www.baxa.com/doseedge.

Baxa Corporation reliably and consistently enables pharmacists at more than 3,000 hospitals worldwide to safely prepare and administer intravenous therapies.  To learn more about the ExactaMix 1200, visit www.baxa.com/exactamix.  For additional information, to request a product brochure or download a free, educational white paper, visit www.baxa.com, call 800-567-2292 or email info@baxa.com.
