How Much Time Can a Pharmacist Save in Compounding Using the CurifyLabs Pharma Kit?

Manual compounding is a careful and time-consuming process. Pharmacists must measure and mix ingredients using a pestle and mortar and ensure each dose is accurate. This method involves repetitive tasks that can lead to fatigue and mistakes. It also limits the number of prescriptions a pharmacy can handle in a day.

Can New Automated Technology Save Time in a Compounding Pharmacy?

To find out, we compared the traditional compounding process with our automated Pharma Kit. Our seasoned compounding pharmacist, Niko, conducted the test. Equipped with a chest-mounted video camera and some rock music in his headphones, Niko was ready to begin.

What Did Niko Make?

  • Prednisolone tablets with strenghts 2 mg, 3 mg, 4 mg and 5 mg
  • 30 doses each, totaling 120 dosed units

Here are the results:

  • Manual Filling: It took nearly 4 hours to fill 120 capsules in 4 strengths manually. This included the time for weighing, mixing, and filling each capsule by hand. Time to make one prescription the old way: 59.5 minutes.
  • Pharma Kit: The same task was completed in less than 1 hour using the Pharma Kit. This significant time reduction allows pharmacists to handle their workload more efficiently and serve patients faster. Time to make one prescription with the Pharma Kit: 14.5 minutes.

Time saved in compounding: 75%
