ARxIUM, developer of pharmacy automation and workflow solutions, released its newest RIVA automated IV compounding system. RIVA prepares syringes and IV bags in an aseptic ISO Class 5 environment, which increases patient safety, cost savings and pharmacy productivity.
The fully automated IV compounding system includes more than 100 additional features and updates. The installed features improve RIVA’s overall performance, operability and diagnostics and enhance pharmacy workflow and inventory management.
The system includes new workflow for managing inventory, simplified operations, expanded usage of consumables, many additional safeguards and a Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) configuration. RIVA now includes operational analytics to proactively manage the system, maximize efficiency and increase productivity.
The company says RIVA has produced millions of IV doses and hundreds of thousands of sterility test doses without any errors.
The system was recently recognized as category leader in “Pharmacy Automation: IV Robots” by independent healthcare research firm KLAS. The top ranking was announced in its “2016 Best in KLAS: Medical Equipment” report. This marks the fourth consecutive year RIVA was selected as category leader for IV robots in pharmacy automation.
