Lipoderm Transdermals from PCCA
Differentiate Your Practice with the Only Transdermal Proven to Deliver Four Drugs at Once
Maximize your competitive advantage with the Lipoderm family of transdermals. Proven to consistently outperform the competition, patients can potentially reduce common side effects of some drugs by using the transdermal route, which also may improve patient compliance, due to better “palatability.” Four formulations are available to better match your patients’ needs: Lipoderm is a hypoallergenic, elegant alternative to traditional PLO gels that contains a proprietary component that increases the permeation of a variety of actives. Lipoderm ActiveMax™ improves the active ingredient-carrying capacity of Lipoderm, allowing pharmacists to use higher percentages of single active ingredients to reduce the amount of cream needed by patients. Anhydrous Lipoderm is designed for use with actives that are unstable in water. Lipoderm HMW™ (High Molecular Weight) has been proven to deliver drugs with high molecular weights through the skin.

Health Engineering Systems
Unguator Advanced Mixing Technology
Revolutionizing the compounding environment has been the main focus of the Unguator technology. Our aim is to facilitate the quality preparation of formulations developed in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary, and other similar settings. Utilizing this system allows for compounds to be prepared in a fraction of the time and cost associated with other conventional methods. The Unguator EMP offers an advanced mixing technology in a closed system that optimizes your formulation mixes. This consistent mix is achieved when preparing a variety of formulations including ointments, creams, gels, suspensions, emulsions, and other similar compounds. The Unguator product assortment also consists of a unique set of mixing jars. These jars are easily distinguished by their patented piston principle push up bottoms. This bottom forms a closed environment, eliminating air intakes and germ contamination, two factors that are commonly associated with manual preparation. These jars serve as multi-functional tools to measure, mix, store, and dispense your compounded formulations. The standard mixing blades used with the Unguator technology are designed to "sweep" the inner wall of the jar during the mix to maximize particle size reduction and the breakup of globules in your preparation.

Automate IV Compounding with the Pyxis® IV System
IV medications are the most costly items in your pharmacy, and at CareFusion, we seek to provide solutions that help standardize and improve IV compounding accuracy. The new Pyxis IV system helps standardize workflow in the central pharmacy IV room to securely manage a closed-loop pick, prep and check process to help drive pharmacy efficiency. This standardization helps improve accuracy and reduce IV compounding errors. It also helps reduce waste by notifying users of unused, returned IVs. Once an IV is prepared, the Pyxis Check module helps enable pharmacists to check the IV against images of the starting components captured by technicians. The Pyxis IV system helps pharmacies automate and streamline IV compounding processes to benefit patient care. The Pyxis IV system helps: automate the IV compounding process; standardize pharmacy workflow; reduce IV waste. (CareFusion may or may not make this product commercially available.)
