“The Axial® machine and concept of packaging is the future of pharmacy. It’s exactly the reason why we wanted to grab a hold of it. Other brands and equipment just didn’t make sense for us. Axial fit all of our criteria — the smaller size for our compact facility, the packaging capabilities, and addition of med sync, the efficiency — it’s incredibly versatile,” said Regel. “Axial multi-dose machines will lead Bartlett Prescription Shop into the next phase of pharmacy. We now have a chance at future growth,” said Regel. “Euclid Medical Products gave our small, local pharmacy a competitive advantage in this crowded market. During times like these, that’s needed now more than ever.” — Josh Regel, Bartlett Prescription Shop in Tennessee
