The ZiuZ Inspector â€“ or is it the Foresee Inspector â€“ is an interesting system designed to inspect the contents of unit dose packages produced by high-speed unit dose packagers. I donâ€™t think thereâ€™s much need for this in most acute care pharmacy operations here in the U.S. because we donâ€™t unit dose enough tablets and/or capsules to make it worth while, but I do think it may have potential in some long-term care pharmacies using a central dispensing model. Who knows, thatâ€™s not really my area of expertise.
The ZiuZ Inspector:
- Verifies the contents of each unit dose bag by analyzing the size, shape and color of each item
- Takes a photo of each side of the package and saves it for future reference. The images can be viewed with the ZiuZ Viewer pictured below.
- Can handle up to 3600 unit dose bags per hour
Just think, you donâ€™t even have to be at the packaging site to verify the contents of each bag. All you would have to do is use some type of telepharmacy setup. Tech-check-tech anyone?
