How It Works

It’s simple. Place any quantity of tablets or capsules on the Rx-4’s turntable disc surface, enter-in the counting mode and desired quantity on the keypad, press “Start” and let the Rx-4 Automatic Tablet & Capsule Counter do the rest.

The Rx-4 is fast — counting tablets and capsules at a rate of up to 500 pills per minute, and accurate, virtually eliminating miscounts.

The Rx-4 features three counting modes to perform any counting task:


Simply enter the quantity and the designated number of tablets or capsules is dispensed into the top collection drawer.

When the drawer is removed, excess tablets or capsules on the disc surface are automatically deposited into the bottom drawer for return to inventory.


Ideal for pre-packing and filling multiple medication vials with the same tablets or capsules.

Enter the desired per-vial quantity and excess tablets or capsules will remain on the turntable for continuous dispensing.

Use the included vial drawer attachment for Direct Vial Filling.


Simply press the “Start” button and the Rx-4 will count all inventory on the turntable.

  1. By Gregory Kettering on

    Our veterinary clinic had been manually counting tablets and capsules for years. This year we decided to look at pill counters. The ones from our vendors were between $6500 and above and was more than we wanted to pay. Found this one after googling “pill counters” on Amazon. This counter, unlike the more expensive counters can have a pill/capsule number set before counting and will count the pills/capsules accurately. There is a lever that has to be set for tablet/capsule size and after several tries, we can now set the lever for the capsule/tablet size. The footprint is small enough for the typical countertop and is easy to operate. Highly recommended.
