KL1Plus — Streamlined Counting Plus Verification Device
Think of a great tablet counter with a safety net...that's the KL1Plus. It is all a retail/outpatient pharmacy needs to count medications while safeguarding against errors. The KL1Plus combines the best-selling KL1 tablet counter with streamlined verification software. It's small enough to fit into your hand, but it delivers so much value and peace of mind. The KL1Plus ensures that all pharmacy orders (tablets, capsules and unit-of-use items) are verified so the patient receives the right medication, dosage and quantity every time. The pharmacy technician simply barcode-scans the patient's Rx label, then scans the corresponding stock bottle or package to ensure there is a match. Eliminating dispensing errors really is that simple with the KL1Plus.

  • Bar code scanning provides verification for all dispensed medications (tablets, capsules and unit of use). The KL1Plus software alerts the technician to a potential error.
