ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kit Check, the leading automation vendor in Medication Intelligence™, today announced that its proprietary Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology will be incorporated in the new KinetiX™ Propofol syringes being developed by Genixus™, a pharmaceutical company and FDA-registered repackager and 503B outsourcing provider focused on transforming acute and critical care medicines. Propofol is one of the most commonly used products in hospitals and health systems.
The collaboration comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Genixus is now offering RFID-tagged Propofol as the inaugural product designed for its ready-to-administer (RTA) syringe platform, KinetiX. Genixus is working to provide solutions that simplify acute and critical care operations in clinicians' efforts to enhance quality of care and improve patient outcomes.
KinetiX Propofol displays various favorable characteristics, including:
- Long-term shelf stability
- Color-coded plunger rod
- Auto-dispensing cabinet (ADC) ready
- 10mL and 20mL sizes
"Our collaboration with Kit Check is an opportunity for us to join together to support error resistance and care delivery," said Seth Coombs, co-founder & Chief Commercial Officer of Genixus. “Our KinetiX RTA platform is designed to assist clinical professionals in their efforts, allowing greater focus on their patients without having to worry about product preparation, and the addition of syringes pre-tagged with RFID capabilities is designed to streamline medication management.”
Medications labeled with RFID tags at the manufacturer level helps ensure item-level visibility of drug products throughout their dynamic lifecycle. As a result, there are a variety of favorable outcomes including notably heightened workflow efficiency, decreased spending and streamlined inventory for hospitals.
RFID tags record data for each dose such as lot number, national drug code (NDC), and refrigeration date. These seemingly simple labels centralize a variety of processes, including burdened tasks like managing drug shortages and recalls, restocking medications, and monitoring inventory.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to join forces with Genixus on such a monumental launch to help provide RFID-tagged medication to hospitals and health systems,” said Doug Zurawski, PharmD, Senior Vice President, Clinical Strategy at Kit Check. “Propofol is the top drug that our customers have been asking us to find a partner for. With the ongoing staffing shortages, hospitals are constantly reevaluating their workflows to remove inefficiencies. Pre-tagged Propofol is going to help decrease the hours dedicated to inventory management and free up staff for other important tasks.”
