Automated checking, filling and sealing of blister cards.
Automated filling, checking and sealing
The VBM Blister Packing Machine 200DS checks, fills and seals cup tray blisters with medicine in a single smooth process.
This machine provides correctly filled blister cards without a lot of manual handling. The empty blister cards are automatically fed in the VBM 200DS, and with the addition of the blister tray stacker a single operator can handle the machine.
Quickly fills, checks and seals blister cards
The VBM 200DS automatically checks the contents of every blister cavity and makes a comparison with the prescribed medicines and the model library. Using various software algorithms, the VBM 200DS quickly and accurately checks the shape, colour and number of pills. After the verification, the blister cards are sealed in the machine and a complete blister card leaves the machine. The machine is equipped with an automated blister feed, making sure the workflow is uninterrupted. With the blister tray stacker, the blister cards can be collected in a neat pile at the exit.
The blister cards can be filled for weekly dosages as well as for multiple patients for a complete ward. The cup can be punched out the tray, making it easy to use for medicine rounds on wards. Two manual filling trays in the VBM 200DS allow for medication that cannot be placed in the cartridges to be added. The medication is added directly into the machine prior to the final verification. To ensure accuracy of manual filling, these trays are equipped with guided lighting and instructions on the screen.
Excellent traceability of the packing process
The entire packing process is photographed and all data is safely stored for reporting and future reference. Data and images of all the packed medicines and blister cards are therefore always available. Specially developed software gives a clear overview of all packed blisters and makes it easy to complete the blisters for transport. The cups can easily be opened in case extra medication needs to be added. In the check-out software, a multi-page report can be added to the tray with extra information about the contents of the tray.
