Deenova consolidated its technological leadership in the field of pharmacy automation and announced the unveiling of the second generation of its ALL-IN-1 robot, able to automatically repack in unit dose all medication forms: oral solids and liquids such as ampoules, syringes, vials and all types of patches sachet and suppositories.
The ultimate generation of this innovative, fully automated repackaging robot has been designed to ensure its predecessor’s efficiency and unmatched fluency while improving versatility and reliability with optimised movements of the robotic arm.
With the operator in mind and for an unrivalled customer experience, particular attention has been put to the functional aspects of the technology, such as improving the vision system with new AI functionalities, lowering the overall noise level, improving the ergonomics and developing a smooth and intuitive user interface, perfectly in line with Deenova’s vision of “sensitive robotics”: a technology in contact with the human side in a reliable support relationship anytime, anywhere.
Fulvio Rudello, Chief Operation Officer at Deenova, declared: “I am very excited to see that our new ALL-IN-1 robot has successfully passed all the factory validation tests and is now fully operational in Deenova’s central unit dose laboratory near Piacenza, serving 22 hospitals sites in Italy, with more than 6 million unit doses produced per year. This is the first step of a wider upgrading process of our facility and will be followed by the gradual replacement of existing equipment starting with implementation during the first quarter of 2023, of the new D3 AIDE Cut, Deenova’s latest modular mechatronic solutions for the repackaging of oral solid medications in unit doses.”
“Our 100 per cent customer retention rate in Italy, after more than 15 years of operations”, explained Christophe Jaffuel, Chief Commercial Officer at Deenova, “motivates us to define new standards of performance and customer experience relentlessly. Having this new ALL-IN-1 robot, fully operating in our facilities is a great premise for our upcoming breakthrough installations in UK and Germany”
