A newly signed agreement between ARxIUM and Wael Pharmacy Company W.L.L. will allow ARxIUM to distribute the specialized health care equipment supplier's RIVA automated IV compounding system in Bahrain.
RIVA is designed to keep patients safe while also preparing IV bags and syringes more efficiently. This system is the only one on the market today that can complete these tasks in an aseptic ISO Class 5 environment.
“Partnering with an industry leader such as Wael Pharmacy will increase our presence in Bahrain and help meet growing interest in RIVA’s ability to produce accurate, safe medications,” Dr. Niels Hansen, president and CEO of ARxIUM, said. “Widely known for its strong market presence and industry knowledge, the company’s expertise helps create several immediate opportunities for RIVA to display its unmatched IV compounding capabilities and ability to produce a consistently strong return on investment.”
Wael Pharmacy is involved in the numerous aspects of importing, warehousing, distributing and marketing health care equipment. The company is based out of Manama and was founded in 1966. Wael Pharmacy works with the world’s top health care equipment manufacturers in regards to pharmaceutical, laboratory, health care consumer and surgical medical products. The company works to ensure hospitals and can provide the best customer service possible while utilizing the most innovative equipment.
“This new partnership reaffirms our dedication to bringing the world’s most innovative medical and pharmaceutical products to our country’s health care providers,” Dr. Abdulrahman Almahmeed, chairman and managing director of Wael Pharmacy, said. “In collaboration with our partners, we remain committed to improving the quality of life in Bahrain, and the introduction of RIVA is another example of how we plan to achieve that goal.”
King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is currently using the RIVA systems to prepare IV medications. Other benefits of the RIVA systems are affording hospitals the benefit of saving a substantial amount of money and reducing pharmacy wastes.
