What is an automated fill-in machine?
An automated filling-in-machine is a machine that automates the use of a chemical and can also be used to replace a chemical, usually by dispensing it directly to a patient.
It is a product that is currently available in India.
The manufacturer is usually a pharmaceutical company that produces medicines in bulk and has a contract with a healthcare provider.
There are several types of automated filling machines in the market, such as a robotic one that has a user interface to select the desired quantity of a product, and one that is capable of filling medicines by the mouth, which is usually called a “dissolving machine”.
In India, there are more than 80 automated filling and dispensing machines, ranging from those that provide medical devices to people to a robotic filling machine that dispenses pills to a machine which dispenses medication to a pharmacy, and the list goes on.
The difference between these machines is that a pharmaceutical filling machine is a robotic machine, while a robotic dispensing machine is also a robot, said Vidyut Prakash, CEO of Prakasha Pharmacy, a pharmaceutically owned pharmacy in Mumbai.
Prakashi has a pharmacist in his clinic and said he is also currently developing a dispensing dispensing automated filling device for the use in rural areas, which will help with the supply of medicines to the poor.
He said, if the pharmacist has the skill to operate the machine, the machines would not be as difficult to use.
Prakash said that the dispensing and dispensation of medicines is a major business in the country, and as the dispenser is the patient, it is a big business.
He said, in the past, there were a lot of problems like lack of skill and poor quality of products being manufactured.
He added that there were many issues with dispensing, as the process of filling the pills in a dispenser was a manual process.
“Now we have a robot filling machine for the purpose of dispensing medication to patients, and we have also introduced robotic dispensers for filling medicines at home,” Prakas said.
“We are also working on automated filling stations at various places to facilitate the dispersion of medicines and the dispensation at home, which would improve the health of patients and decrease the burden on the pharma firms.”
The pharmacist added that the automation of filling machines has been a huge challenge in India for many years.
“There are some major hurdles in filling machines, which we have worked on, like ensuring that machines are well calibrated, that they are not being used at a low level, that the machinery is not damaged or tampered with, and that the machines have no faults,” he said.
Pukki Sharma, who is an assistant professor of pharmacy, Health Sciences at Jawaharlal Nehru University, said that in India, the demand for filling machines is also growing, especially in the rural areas.
“This is a good time for pharma companies to enter the market,” she said.
She said, the country has more than 7,500 pharmacies and there are about 2,000 filling machines.
She added, the shortage of machines will also affect the quality of medicines, as some medicines are cheaper and more convenient than others.
“A pharma company will have to offer more affordable medicines and higher-quality medicines at lower cost to fill the demand,” she added.
The pharma industry in India has been in the process for a few years to develop more filling machines for the rural and rural-dominated segments of the population.
In 2015, the pharmaceutic industry of India had a turnover of $2.5 billion.
