Successful collaboration with Swedish university hospital enters the next phase

Pharmacolog has, in collaboration with one of the leading university hospitals in Sweden, developed ARM (Advanced Reconstruction Module). The system will be tested in clinical environments for 6 months and comprises 2 DrugLog systems that will be rented during the project period.

Astrid Lindgren’s Children’s Hospital at Karolinska University Hospital will with funding from SLL Innovation to undertake a 6-month project to test the Advanced Reconstruction Module (ARM) with its associated DrugLog® in a clinical environment. The project runs throughout the year and includes the lease of two DrugLog systems.

The ARM, partly funded by Vinnova, was implemented during the second half of 2016 with the purpose to develop a system based on Pharmacolog’s DrugLog® and the system ePed, the national information system installed at Astrid Lindgren’s Children’s Hospital for the treatment of pediatric medicines. The goal was to develop a system to avoid malpractice by combining the specific instructions for preparing more than 500 different drugs available in ePed with DrugLog’s ability to determine a drug concentration and identity in seconds and then label the specific syringe or infusion bag.

Mats Högberg, CEO of Pharmacolog: “We are pleased to contribute to improved drug management in pediatric care. DrugLog® is an excellent tool for controlling the particularly sensitive formulations. As we ourselves also work with developing dedicated systems for safe validation in the preparation of drugs for the treatment of children, we hope that the results of the project can contribute to our own development. “

Extended collaboration with Uppsala University regarding dosage of antibiotics

Pharmacolog AB enters a new research and development cooperation with researchers from Uppsala University regarding methods for determining antibiotic concentration in the blood. The agreement is a direct continuation of the agreement signed in spring 2017, which runs until the end of the year.

The project carried out to date has been very successful and has shown that Pharmacolog’s technology can detect very small concentrations of antibiotics in blood. The parties have therefore decided to continue the cooperation with purpose to develop a clinical prototype for patient-related control of antibiotic levels in blood by 2018.

Study in Lille completed

The study conducted at the University Hospital in Lille with DrugLog in order to control drug preparations carried out in the operating room has now been completed. A total of 22 different drugs were checked and the result indicated an error rate in the drug preparations of 6.9%.

The study, conducted during the summer, was part of a doctoral thesis and the results were presented in connection with the dissertation at the Pharmacy Department earlier this fall. Of the 232 analyzes analyzed, it was found that 6.9% had a concentration beyond the tolerance level. According to the study, the cost of an error medication is about 4,000 €, which means that DrugLog control in these cases potentially result...
