3 Ways Pill Counters Create a More Efficient Pharmacy

Published on: 06.21.2013

As the manager of a pharmacy, you understand that there are times when your pharmacy technicians are extremely busy. Your customers are all very important to you, and they all have varying needs. While it's important to help your customers quickly, and with the best customer service possible, it's also important to be precise and accurate when you or a pharmacy technician is dispensing medication.

Traditional ways of counting pills are very inefficient. Not only do they promote cross-contamination, but they slow down the overall process. At Torbal Rx, we've made it a priority to design pill counters that not only ensure the safety of your customers, but that also provide you with a more efficient process of serving them.


Pharmacies that use traditional pill counters or scales usually lack in speed because the equipment simply doesn't count the pills quickly enough. It might even be necessary to count a prescription more than once, if the technician believes there has been an error. Our pill counters provide an accurate reading on the first pill count. They also provide a result in as little as six seconds.

Simple to Use

Some scales and pill counters have many different moving parts that require time and an understanding of the scale in order to operate them properly. The best pill counters are simple to use, with only one step in order to complete the pill count.

No Cleaning Required

Other than the basic cleaning that would be done in the pharmacy, Torbal Rx pill counters require no cleaning between medications. Unlike traditional counters, the pills themselves do not come into contact with the counter surface. Pharmacies that use manual pill counting trays need to clean them between each patient in order to ensure that cross-contamination doesn't take place. Our pill counters allow pills to be counted in the vial, which eliminates the need for constant cleaning.

If you're not satisfied with your pharmacy's pill counting methods, we can understand. We felt the same way, which is why we developed our pill counters. For more information, or to place your order for your new Torbal Rx pill counters, contact us today.
