The Compounder

IV compounding for oncology care but also non toxic (patient-specific) preparations comes with challenges. These unique situations can affect the safety of both patients and pharmacy staff. The Compounder is designed to meet these challenges. What’s more, it does so while enhancing the efficiency of your sterile compounding operations.

The Compounder protects the operator from exposure to (hazardous) chemicals. It does this by way of special design features. By preparing IV admixtures virtually hands-free, this technology provides a consistent, automated process. This means it’s faster, safer and more accurate than manual compounding.



We can handle all kinds of output: syringes, infusion bags, parenteral nutrition, elastomeric pumps, cassettes. You can imagine that output is not just a number, but a result of type of container, type of process and volume transported. Some numbers:

  • Infusion bags:  20-40 per hour (based on 50 ml transport per bag)
  • Elastomeric pumps: 15-20 per hour (based on 10-20 ml drug and 80-90 ml diluent)
  • Syringes: 30-40 per hour when placed on output position
  • Syringes: 60-80 per hour when placed on input position


We need a 50 ml syringe for dosing but you decide which brand of syringe is used. By using this syringe we dose with an accuracy of 50 microliter when dosing <10ml and 100 microliters when dosing >10ml. That is one thing. Being able to accurately measure the dose that is added is as important. All outputs incorporate an individual weighing scale with an accuracy of 50 milligram in a range of 0 to 2000 gr. You decide when you weigh: at the beginning and end of the filling process or after every addition.

All processing steps are logged

To facilitate a transparent and loggable process, we use photo’s, RFID’s and dedicated weighing scales. All items are loaded on the machine using spike specific adapters. With these adapters we are brand independent and thus you to decide which spike to use on our machine.
As all adapters are fitted with RFID chips we are able to track all movements using the RFID reader within the dosing mechanism. Photos are taken of all product during loading and optionally also during unloading. After production a report is generated using photos, RFID logging and weighing results for every product. And if you want more data, it can simply be added to the reporting format. Because you decide what you want to have reported for your product release workflow.
