IV Check measures IV samples in the hospital pharmacy or anywhere IVs are prepared, and instantly reports the drug, dose and diluent present to validate IVs and avoid mistakes that can injure or kill patients. IV Check can also be used to measure process streams or final product in pharmaceutical and IV manufacturing operations. It also provides a simple, one-step solution to detect diversion of narcotics, anesthetics, or other drugs, a serious problem in many hospitals. IV Check allows pharmacy technicians and pharmacists to simply and rapidly verify the drug, concentration and diluent of IVs. IV Check provides the first practical and complete verification of important medications prepared in hospital pharmacies, helping achieve a zero error workplace. IV Check is considered laboratory equipment much like an HPLC or spectrophotometer, therefore regulatory approval is not required in the US.
