Abstract (en)

In a preferred embodiment, an automated Pharmacy Admixture System (APAS) may include a manipulator (322) system to transport medical containers such as bags, vials, or syringes in a compounding chamber regulated to a pressure below atmospheric pressure. In a preferred implementation, the manipulator system is configured to grasp and convey syringes (1106), IV bags (1102), and vials (1104) of varying shapes and sizes from a storage system in an adjacent chamber regulated at a pressure above atmospheric pressure. Various embodiments may include a controller adapted to actuate the manipulator system to bring a fill port of an IV bag (1102), vial (1104), or syringe (1106) into register with a filling port at a fluid transfer station in the chamber. A preferred implementation includes a sanitization system that can substantially sanitize a bung on a fill port of a vial (1104) or IV bag in preparation for transport to the fluid transfer station.
