Easy-Read Precision Pharmacy Balances Improve Workflows, Safety

Press release from: Mettler-Toledo International Inc.

METTLER TOLEDO, world renowned for precise and easy-to-use scales, introduced a pharmacy-specific portfolio of precision balances today. The new portfolio encompasses two product lines: the PHS, or professional line; and the PHL, or portable line.

Balances included in the METTLER TOLEDO pharmacy-specific portfolio support tasks pharmacists perform daily including cream, ointment and medication dispensing. Additionally, they provide the critical precision required when compounding top-grade active ingredients such as those used in eye drops.

Whether utilized for basic tasks or complicated weighing processes, PHS balances provide maximum reliability in situations where scales are stationary. The compact design of PHL balances is a better choice when space saving and portability, as well as accuracy, are required.

Smart design inherent in the entire portfolio ensures reliability and enhances productivity. Durable metal housing of the PHS balances protects weighing results from environmental impact. Proven, fast-settling MonoBloc technology guarantees long service life in variable conditions. And FACT - fully automatic calibration technology - assures consistency via automatic internal sensor adjustment that compensates for variables such as temperature that can skew results. Plus, models that include a draft shield have a "QuickLock" feature. This lets users quickly dismantle and reassemble the shield to streamline cleaning meaning balances are easier to maintain and cross-contamination risks are reduced.

METTLER TOLEDO has optimized the portfolio's usability by making every balance easy to clean and easy to program. SmartKeys enhance ease-of-use by allowing one-touch access to often-used functions such as formulation, piece-counting and totaling. Easy-read screens help further ensure accurate dispensing and improve medication safety.

Using PHS balances, pharmacists can perform weighing operations in a wide variety of languages including English, German, French, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese. Results from weighing operations in both PHS and PHL pharmacy balances can be printed or transferred to PC without additional software. Not only does this streamline pharmacy workflows: it virtually eliminates human transcription errors. Built-in date-and-time stamp functions further decrease human error potential.
