Kent Öbrink, Sales Manager Pharmacolog comments: “GERPAC is perhaps the most important conference in Southern Europe and therefore it is extra exciting to be able to show PrepLog™ here for the first time. Interest is great and the comments are very positive. DrugLog® that quickly and efficiently verifies the concentration and identity of a prepared drug is used today at several hospital pharmacies here in France. What PrepLog™ additionally provides is a fast and smooth workflow with full integration and traceability. Something that is important when preparing chemotherapy drugs can be likened to an industrial production where integration and good workflow are crucial for safe and efficient handling.”
