Baxa Unveils DoseEdge TPN For Automated TPN Compounding

Baxa Corporation (Baxa) has introduced DoseEdge TPN for completely managing the workflow for automated TPN production. When used with Abacus TPN calculation software and the ExactaMix 2400 Compounder, DoseEdge TPN will provide automated support for the entire TPN dose preparation, documentation and inspection process.

Baxa said that after completion of automated TPN compounding, DoseEdge TPN can help catch and prevent errors in the workflow and processes. The software also includes new safety functionality for manual additions. Its pharmacist inspection capabilities, complete dose status tracking, displaying current status and status transitions, and long-term storage of detailed information permit better management and audit of the TPN dose preparation process.

Additionally, Baxa claimed that DoseEdge TPN provides all of the benefits of the company’s DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager including barcode verification of ingredients, automated volume calculations and photographic evidence of proper measurement and injection.

In a prior announcement, Baxa had launched upgrades to the DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager. This Baxa DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager upgrade extends DoseEdge capabilities beyond IV preparation to encompass liquid doses such as oral medications.

Larry Gibson, product manager of Baxa, said: Automated TPN compounding is recognised as one of the most successful pharmacy technologies – adding safety, process control, accuracy and speed to what had been a labor-intensive and error-prone process of compounding TPN doses by hand.
