Rx Filling & Inventory Counting Devices For Any Volume Pharmacy

Every community pharmacy’s needs are unique, so we offer two unique counting devices. The simple KL1 eliminates tedium, time-waste, and mistakes from the tray and spatula. The KL1Plus is based on the KL1 counter with the added benefits of computerized verification and interfacing. The KL1Plus prevents Rx filling errors and provides a 10-year record of each fill. Let us help you determine which ‘Kirby’ is right for your workflow, whether you are an independent or chain, hospital outpatient or long-term care, mail order or specialty pharmacy.

Kirby Lester KL1Plus Pill Counter

Think of the world’s most trusted pharmacy counter with a computer. That’s the unique KL1Plus tablet counter with built-in scan-verification to safeguard against errors and updated inventory functions. Small enough to fit into your hand, the KL1Plus ensures that all prescriptions (tablets, capsules and unit-of-use items) are verified before counting. Now includes a C-II electronic log function to replace the inefficient 3-ring binder and provide instant data on dispensing and inventory activity, by user. Every Rx fill is archived for up to 10 years to eliminate customer disputes. Track inventory from wholesaler delivery to on-shelf availability, to each technician’s activities. Plus, if your pharmacy uses a pharmacy robot like our KL-SR, the KL1Plus is the perfect partner technology to handle every order not coming from the robot.

The KL1Plus is like 4 tools in 1 for pharmacy dispensing, in one small device. So much more than just a pill counter, this is your safeguard against prescription filling errors, customer discrepancies, and controlled medication inventory problems.

  • Forces a check for all medications and NDC/DIN before counting; KL1Plus software alerts the technician to a potential error (wrong med, strength, or quantity)
  • 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)
  • Set up alerts for exception medication handling (e.g., USP-800 list drugs, penicillin, sulfa)
  • Completed prescriptions can be retrieved for up to 10 years
  • “Directed Dispensing” ensures all pharmacy staff follow designated controlled medication procedure
  • Biometric finger scanning for user and time tracking
  • Complements any robot (like the Kirby Lester KL-SR) by managing all orders not handled by the robot, for 100% counting & scan-verification

How To Determine The Right ‘Kirby’ Counter

Choosing which Kirby Lester tablet counter for your pharmacy is easy, but there are factors that come into play, like:

  • Interfacing to your pharmacy management system
  • How you conduct inventory
  • If you desire mandatory double-counts and stock bottle checks for controlled medications
  • The need for user tracking ( which staff member is doing what action at what time for which patient)
  • If you want “a picture” of each prescription fill for potential customer disputes
  • Budget
  • Generic substitutions

With either device, your pharmacy staff is freed up to focus on business-building initiatives like diabetes therapy, DME, med sync, or any other customer care service. Your Capsa account manager is skilled at helping you determine which system is best for your workflow.
