Error-Preventing Tablet Counter For Controlled Medication Inventory and NDC Scan-Verification

Kirby Lester KL1Plus

Overview

The KL1Plus is a multi-functional tool for any size community pharmacy. It combines the simplicity of a Kirby Lester tablet counter with computerized scan-verification to safeguard against prescription filling errors, and inventory software to eliminate manual logs for controlled substances. Suitable for any volume or size community or outpatient pharmacy, the KL1Plus ensures prescriptions (tablets, capsules and unit-of-use items) are verified before counting, and every Rx dispense is archived for up to 10 years. And, if your pharmacy uses a fully automated pharmacy robot, a KL1Plus is the perfect partner to handle everything else for 100% medication verification and peace of mind while managing controlled medications.

Perpetual Narcotics Inventory Management


The KL1Plus helps your pharmacy maintain absolute inventory accuracy, especially for controlled medications (manual counting is only 95% accurate at best, with no record of what was filled). This “Directed Dispensing” system ensures all pharmacy staff members who process prescriptions are following best practices.

Kirby Lester KL1Plus is Designed For:

  • Prescription counting
  • Rx filling error prevention
  • Narcotics inventory counting and recording
  • Perpetual inventory software, including dynamic interface with Datarithm® 
  • Returns and expired medication inventory tracking

Key Features

  • Forces a check for all medications (tablets, capsules and unit of use) before counting; KL1Plus software alerts the technician to a potential error (wrong med, strength, or quantity)
  • Flags for exception-med handling (e.g., USP-800 list drugs, penicillin, sulfa)
  • Orders are verified and filled in less time than traditional hand-counting (14.3 seconds faster (avg) than hand-counting for a 90-count Rx)
  • Completed prescriptions can be retrieved for up to 10 years
  • “Directed Dispensing” ensures all pharmacy staff follow designated controlled medication procedure
  • Inventory management software provides an electronic C-II log and browser-based reports, replacing manual log processes
  • Essential for perpetual inventory management, records can be exported. Including Datarithm direct interface for daily cycle counts to assist forecasting for medication reordering
  • Biometric finger scanning for user and time tracking
  • Compact design, about the size of a traditional counting tray
  • Frees up time to help staff concentrate on priorities like customer service and MTM, and pharmacists save precious time during script check
  • Counts almost any tablet or capsule without calibration, maintains absolute accuracy
  • Optional carrying case available when portability is needed
  • Capsa is ISO 27001:2013 certified, meeting the highest standards for cyber-security and HIPAA compliance
