CareFusion Acquires Technology for Sorting and Managing Dangerous Pharmaceutical Waste
Date:4/6/2011

nd-services/products-services-categories/medication-management/index.aspx">Pyxis® medication management portfolio with the Pyxis EcoStation– a hardware and software system that can help hospitals identify, classify and segregate pharmaceutical waste, while providing records to facilitate tracking and regulatory controls.

"Pharmaceutical waste management is a challenging issue, with many of the nation's hospitals remaining non-compliant due to complex handling requirements specific to each medication classification and varying regulations at federal, state and local levels," said Tom Leonard, president of Dispensing Technologies at CareFusion. "CareFusion can now help in a way that protects their employees, the environment and their bottom line."

CareFusion's patented Pyxis EcoStation system uses barcode technology for drug identification and a database of more than 180,000 National Drug Code products to categorize and separate pharmaceutical waste at the point of disposal. By automating the identification and sorting of different types of residual drugs, the Pyxis EcoStation system eliminates the human error and potential cross contamination inherent in manual sorting of pharmaceutical waste.

CareFusion is the industry leader in dispensing technologies with its Pyxis medication and supply management and Pyxis® point-of-care solutions. CareFusion will demonstrate the new Pyxis EcoStation system at the American Society for Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition from June 12 - 15 in
