Kirby Lester KL60 Dispensing Robot

Compact Automated Dispensing Robot for Retail & Hospital Outpatient Pharmacies

Kirby Lester KL60 Dispensing Robot

The KL60 is the most compact of Capsa’s Kirby Lester-brand pharmacy robots for low- to high-volume retail and hospital outpatient pharmacies. The KL60 fully automates 60 high-moving oral solids; that is 35-40% (or more) of a pharmacy’s total daily prescriptions in a device that is less than 4′ deep. With the KL60 automatically handling more than one-third of orders, your pharmacy staff is freed up to concentrate on important priorities like immunizations, customer service, and MTM. The KL60 automates 60 commonly prescribed medications. It selects the vial, applies the label, counts exactly, and presents the perfect prescription in seconds.

For higher volume pharmacies, or those wanting to automate more of the prescription-filling tasks, view the Kirby Lester KL108 secure robot.
