Counting pills by hand?

Hand counting has been established in pharmacies, veterinary clinics, and government applications but what if there was a more efficient way to count pill capsules? A way with no miscounts or re-starts after being interrupted. When you switch to an automatic pill counter, you are saving more than just employee’s time spent counting capsules; you’re saving money and amplifying effectiveness.

  1. Cost Effective

Hand counting may be cheap, but when compared to the employee’s time that goes into counting, you may find a different answer. In places such as veterinary clinics, it is crucial that animals in need of your help get treatment right away. This puts pill counting off for another time but when it does come time to count specific doses of medicine, is that the best way for employees to spend their time? In today’s fast paced work environment, automatic pill counters enable veterinary clinics to save time and labor costs while accomplishing various counting tasks.

  1. Error-Proof

While we can only speak for our Rx-4, we can say that it simply will not miscount. When used as described in the Rx-4 Automatic Tablet and Capsule Counter operator’s manual, the patented gate-flow design specifically eliminates the possibility of tablet capsule miscounts. Errors with hand counting can happen often, whether it is from distractions and having to start over again, or basic counting errors. It is common to have hand-counting errors, some that can have worse effects than others.

  1. Time Saver

Time is of the essence. In various industry applications, time is one resource you can’t get back. So how is time saved when switching to an automatic counter? First, the machine does the work and you can carry on with other tasks, hands-free. Second, no stopping and starting counting due to an error of hand counting or user mistake. Lastly, you won’t have to take the time after counting to dispense specific quantities directly in vials or bottles; the Rx-4 will do that for you too!
