No human being can be as certain about getting it right in administering medicines as our blister packaging system.

Whether in a hospital, in a care home or in a pharmacy, which supply facilities – portioning and administering of medicines for daily intake is a job in which an error can immediately cause damage to the health of the patient.

It is, nevertheless, the case in large facilities that thousands of patients a day must be provided rapidly and routinely.

QCS a subsidiary company of the Norchem Group and has installed a robotic blister packaging system for this purpose which combines efficiency with cost effectiveness and the highest levels of safety. The machines sort, pack and label the daily tablets automatically. The result is an air-tight and hygienic strip of pouches which can be effortless distributed.

A photographic system checks the pre-packed tablets for completeness and accordance to the prescription. Every pouch can be fully traced thanks to a barcode system and the patient can read on their medicine pouch what is in it and when they should take it. This offers maximum safety combined with excellent cost effectiveness.
