Pharmatech Solutions Limited invents a prescription printer

Prescription printer


Pharmatech Solutions Limited, an entity made up of three young Ghanaian pharmacists, invented a device called Approved Label Printer, to solve the problems of prescribing drugs in the pharmaceutical industry.

The approved label printer was introduced in September 2021 and launched at the 2022 Annual General Meeting of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana in Tamale.

It is programmed with a specialized application containing more than 1000 drugs, which allowed pharmacists to dispense drugs with their respective dosages.

Mr. Hayford Brako, co-founder of Pharmatech Solutions Limited, in an interview with Ghana News Agency Tamale, said the device was introduced to promote clear and professional dosing and to facilitate pharmacy practice.

He said that pharmacists usually struggle to read the eligible writings of prescriptions, which leads to incorrect dosages endangering the lives of patients, adding that the licensed label printer ensures proper labeling of drugs dispensed to patients. .

He reiterated, “This device aims to eliminate the consequences resulting from ineligible handwriting, abbreviated handwriting and omission of information that lead patients to abuse drugs. We strive to ensure that medicines are used in the right way.

Mr. Brako said the device has so far been tested at Korle-Bu University Hospital, 37 Military Hospital, Police Hospital, Leister Hospital, Ridge and Lapaz Community Hospital with over 200 registered pharmacies.

He expressed hope that pharmacies across the country would embrace the innovation, saying it was affordable for all pharmacies to acquire.

He said, “The approved label printer costs only GHS 3,500. It comes with software on a personal computer, tablet and portable printer with around 10 years warranty and paper rolls that can print 400 labels.
