Retail Pharmaceutical Storage

retail pharmaceutical secure prescription vertical carouselPowered vertical carousels provide secure point-of-use retail pharmaceutical prescription storage in a small footprint. The carousels use an automated storage and retrieval system in an enclosed machine to provide improved floor space utilization, faster order processing, inventory control, security, accessibility, and increased accuracy compared to manual storage systems.

Powered Vertical Pharmacy Prescription Carousels

The vertical carousels can be used for bulk-case storage of specific drugs, pre-bottled prescriptions created and stored until the customer orders it, and call-in, online, or mail order prescriptions that can be filled and queued until the customer arrives for pick-up.

Within the vertical carousel, individual pharmaceuticals and completed prescriptions can be stored in boxes or totes that are placed on the carriers. Pharmacists access stored pharmaceuticals by keying the carrier location, scanning a barcode, or entering an inventory number on the carousel's control panel. Then, the automated system automatically delivers the requested item to an ergonomically-positioned workstation where they can be retrieved, sorted, or stored.

Additional inventory management and control software also provide barcoding and scanning capabilities, lot tracking, and real-time management reports.

  • Space savings of up to 75%
  • Reduced or eliminated walk and search time
  • 50-60% improvement in order processing efficiency
  • The pharmacist does not have to leave the counter area to fill orders
