PharmaHelp - LAF

Automating oncology preparation

The PharmaHelp machine has been developed by experts to meet the specific needs of Pharmacists in the automated production of personalised medication in hospital pharmacies and compounding centres.

The machine is very compact which makes installation quick and simple. Delivery to first operation can be achieved in a matter of weeks. All parts are easily accessed to achieve thorough cleaning and sanitization.

Pharmahelp is totally computer controlled during operation allowing the operator to attend other tasks or to prepare the next production thus effectively utilising valuable operator time.
Critical safety factors such as fill accuracy, precision, sterility, contamination control and product integrity have all been tested to GMP standards and approved in the practical setting of Fresenius Kabi Compounding Centres.
