Finally, Affordable Robotics for Any Pharmacy
For too long, pharmacy robots meant bulky, expensive and complicated machinery. Not anymore! Kirby Lester’s KL60 compact robot and new KL100 midsized robot fulfill the long-unmet need for a simple system that handles the bulk of daily dispensing. The KL60 is the model of efficiency; it automatically labels and fills 35-40% (or more) of your total orders. The KL100 handles 50% or more of your total orders. Plus, Kirby Lester robots are hassle free, and daily upkeep is only 5-10 minutes. And if robotics aren't right for your business, there's an affordable Kirby Lester system for every pharmacy. Ask about our best-selling KL1 tablet counter and our error-preventing KL1Plus, KL20 and KL30 systems with scan-verification software aboard. These systems reduce errors, increase dispensing speed, help manage workflow and inventory, and more.
