Euclid® Medical Products, a leading provider of pharmacy automation equipment, today introduces the Axial® Multi-Dose Machines, a new line of next-generation strip adherence pouch packaging machines and consumables with unit- and multi-dose capabilities.
According to recent data, many U.S. patients are not adherent to their prescription medication regimens using traditional pill vial packaging. Approximately 50% of medications for chronic diseases are not taken as prescribed. This lack of adherence is estimated to cause nearly 125,000 deaths and at least 10% of hospitalizations, and to cost the American healthcare system between $100 billion and $289 billion per year. Multi-dose medication packaging, using the Axial® packaging machine, promotes adherence and simplifies the process for the patient by pouch packaging medications and labeling with appropriate time of day.
“At Euclid® Medical Products, we are committed to helping our customers reduce costs and improve overall operational efficiency,” said Kevin Copsey, Business Unit Director for Euclid® Medical Products. “The Axial® machine will not only increase productivity amongst pharmacists, but also improve patient adherence.”
The Axial® Multi-Dose Packaging Machines come in two models – Axial® RMD-144 and Axial® RMD-352 – both boasting a smaller footprint than any other machine on the market at 2x2 foot or 2x4 foot, respectively. Its revolutionary rotary design allows for easy canister access and simplified cleaning as well as the the ability to store 144 to 352 canisters – depending on model. The smart cannisters have radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and can be placed anywhere in the machine. It can package at speeds up to 65 pouches per minute.
