Dispensing Control through Scale Integration

Weighing and dispensing is one of the critical steps for regulated industries. Companies are striving to eliminate the potential for error from the manufacturing process. Mar-Kov’s Dispensing Tool helps ensure regulatory compliance while reducing risk within weighing and dispensing industries.

Operators are guided through the dispensing process. Barcode identification helps ensure the use of correct materials and equipment. The system can automatically adjust the required weights of active ingredients based on the purity test results of the raw good. Material, equipment, and other activities are linked into a single record of production as an electronic batch record)

Mar-Kov can provide a complete validation-ready solution that helps reduce compliance costs while increasing productivity. You can integrate the tool with your company’s existing ERP or with the rest of the Mar-Kov solution.
