Overview

Reduce the Risks and Costs Associated with IV Compounding

Sterile IV compounding is considered one of the highest risk areas of pharmacy practice—issues with sterility and dose accuracy can seriously impact patient safety. The Omnicell i.v.STATION™ Non-hazardous Compounding Robot supports safer, more accurate, more cost effective, and more compliant compounding.

By preparing ready-to-administer non-hazardous admixtures completely hands-free, this advanced technology provides a consistent, automated process that's more accurate than manual compounding and more economical than outsourcing sterile IV compounding.

  • Smallest available footprint enables easy integration into your facility
  • Gravimetric controls provide exceptional accuracy
  • In-process barcode scanning and image recognition verify correct ingredients
  • Decreased reliance on outsourcing and premixed IVs reduces pharmacy expenses

As the global leader in IV automation, Omnicell surrounds our advanced systems with novel data services, applications support, and clinical expertise to help you gain the most benefit from the technology.

"IV robotics will help us streamline our compounding processes, allowing us to redirect financial and clinical time savings to activities that support clinical care."

Michael Campbell, PharmD, MBA, Director of Pharmacy, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center
