Positron Introduces Next Generation PosiRx Pharmacy Automation Systems
CHICAGO, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Positron Corporation (OTCBB: POSC) is pleased to announce the release of the PosiRx® 3000-Series, its latest pharmacy automation systems. The PosiRx® 3000-Series are the first systems to automate and encompass the complete compounding process, from generator elution to dose distribution, of multiple diagnostic SPECT agents in an environment engineered to be ISO Class 5 and USP 797 compliant. Designed for facilities dispensing as many as three hundred patient-specific doses per day, the PosiRx® 3000-Series will benefit providers and patients by enabling unit dose radiopharmaceuticals to be prepared more cost effectively and accurately than previously possible.
The PosiRx® line of automation systems features DoseLink(TM), Positron’s state of the art proprietary software. Developed for precision and customer ease of use, DoseLink(TM) maximizes the functionality and efficiency of operating the PosiRx® system through a robust and intuitive interface that can be operated from a variety of interfaces. Whether accessed from a desktop, tablet or smartphone, DoseLink(TM) empowers the user to control drug preparation and plan daily production, as well as store and retrieve data in a secure environment. Additionally, the operator may interact with Positron support personnel for assistance with any task in real time, across any platform.
“The release of the PosiRx® 3000-Series is a true milestone that marks the next phase in nuclear pharmacy automation,” stated Charles Conroy, RPh, MBA, Positron’s Chief Operating Officer. “For over 20 years, the nuclear pharmacy community has been seeking an automation solution that can efficiently and accurately prepare patient specific unit doses. Through the ability to compound a wide selection of radiopharmaceuticals, coupled with the system’s speed and efficiency, the 3000-Series is that solution and stands in a class by itself. By powering the System with DoseLink(TM), PosiRx® users will benefit from the unprecedented flexibility and control to operate across all types of devices and a variety of platforms. By controlling the preparation process from any place at any time, our customers will see significant revenue enhancement from increased patient throughput and a decrease in cost of goods.”
