The Nexus Station offers revolutionary capabilities for traceability and carrier management over legacy pneumatic tube system stations.
DENVER, -- Swisslog Healthcare Solutions, a leading supplier of automation and software solutions for material transport, medication management and warehouse distribution, announces the launch of its Nexus(TM) Station at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Summer Meeting in Denver, Colorado this week. Designed to advance the state-of-the art for pneumatic tube system (PTS) dispatch and receipt, the Nexus Station offers clinical advantages for secure pharmacy deliveries, while incorporating user-friendly access and messaging.
"The Nexus Station is the first functional innovation for pneumatic systems in decades. ASHP is the perfect venue to launch this new technology because its features provide strong value for hospital pharmacies, while improving the patient and caregiver experience," notes Stephan Sonderegger, Swisslog Healthcare Solutions President. "Through its improved control and visibility of secure transactions, Nexus allows pharmacists to send and receive secure carriers without disabling the station, and with clear traceability."

The Nexus Platform has been designed to improve control and visibility of secure pharmacy transactions to patient care areas, reduce fulfillment times and improve pharmacy staff efficiency, resulting in a better experience for patients and caregivers. In addition to the PTS station, the Nexus Platform components include: Nexus PTS Control Software, Nexus Control Panel and NexSeal(TM) Carrier.
As the next generation of PTS stations, the Nexus Station provides quiet delivery of PTS carriers and improved carrier management through a carousel that handles both send and receive actions. It will provide current and new Swisslog customers with the following additional features and benefits:
-- Queueing functionality accommodates users' needs first by decoupling system operation from workflow
