Pharmacy automation project in Denmark

Christian Brincker Thiesen and Tina Clock Wrønding

In 2012 Region Hovedstadens Apotek, Denmark’s largest hospital pharmacy, started with Loccioni humancare a new plan for the automation and control of chemotherapy production.

This involves much more than a robot: it is indeed a wide project aiming at integrating the production workflow of three compounding sites in the Region under a comprehensive, secure and efficient technological and IT framework.

Since the project kick-off, APOTECAchemo has been installed at Rigshospitalet and it has undergone a strict validation process according to Good Manufacturing Practice regulations (EU GMP), which Danish hospital pharmacies must follow as the pharmaceutical companies. This process certified the design, installation, operations and performance qualification of APOTECAchemo (DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ), alongside with the Loccioni humancare’s quality system.

Nowadays, with APOTECAchemo up and running at Rigshospitalet and the up-scaling process already on stage, it is the right time for a first review of the project. The March issue of AlfaNordic Magazine features an interview with Tina Klok Wrønding and Christian Brinker Thiesen from Region Hovedstadens Apotek and Amgros, both directly involved in the automation project.

The article contains a detailed report on how specifications were developed, how the project is going, and what was Loccioni contribution to it.
