Kirby Lester KL108 Secure Robot For Pharmacies

Fully Automated Dispensing Robot for Retail & Hospital Outpatient Pharmacies

The Kirby Lester KL108 secure robot offers breakthrough pharmacy dispensing innovations. This Kirby Lester automation from Capsa Healthcare (formerly named KL-SR) efficiently manages the filling of your pharmacy’s most common tablets and capsules via newly designed universal cassettes that require no technician calibration. Thus, there is virtually no chance for human error when changing the medication in the cassette. With 108 high-moving tablets or capsules stored in locked cassettes, 50% or more of your daily prescriptions are automated.  So your staff is freed up to focus on value-added activity like customer service, Star ratings, and MTM. The KL108 is ideal for busy pharmacies that demand precision, flexibility, accountability and security. If your pharmacy experienced frustration with older robotic fillers that required regular recalibration of hand-adjusted cassettes/miscounts/dropped pills, the KL108 design is sure to impress.

Revolutionary Cassette Technology

The KL108 uses digital image processing technology to auto-calibrate 108 cassettes onsite, with no human manual adjustments, no recalibration ever, and no need to order new cassettes. All cassettes can be calibrated to a new NDC/DIN onsite, on demand, and anytime. The medication database contains precise measurements for common medications, and your cassette will auto-adjust while docked in the Cassette Station. However, on occasion you will want to automate a new tablet or capsule that is not yet in the database (e.g., new generic). The KL108 handles measurement and storage of the new pill dimensions in the Camera Chamber. Cassettes only can be removed by an authorized user, so you can feel confident dispensing controlled medications and high-value medications through the Kirby Lester KL108.

Kirby Lester KL108 is designed for:
  • Fully automated prescription filling
  • Perpetual inventory assurance
  • Controlled medication dispensing
  • Pharmacy staff labor-savings
