Designing Your Nutraceutical Pharmacy
Every pharmacy has different needs, and TCGRx will take the time to learn your nutraceutical pharmacy before we begin the design process. Our engineers use advanced 3D software to create a rendering of your space, and enhance it until you are completely satisfied.

Nutraceutical Pharmacy Design Examples
Each pharmacy has unique requirements. The most common need is making the most of the space in your pharmacy. TCGRx’s Beacon® inventory management system was designed to maximize even the smallest of spaces. By taking advantage of barcode and pick-to-light technology, Beacon fits more bottles per square foot than any traditional fixture. In addition, all fixtures are mobile and modular, so if your space needs to be reconfigured in the future, or if you move, the fixtures will still fit your new or revised space.
Our workstations are designed for techs and pharmacists to handle all processes of the script filling cycle. The tabletops are deep enough to accommodate machines like our AVF-6 Vial Filler vial hoppers, and even our BullsEye tablet splitter. Not only are the workstations mobile, but they are also designed for first-in, first-out to reduce expired medications. The workstations hold small or bulk bottles, utilize flat or speed shelves, and the number of shelves can be configurated.
With Beacon, stocking will become faster, the filling of prescriptions simplified, and auditing inventory will be easier. The high-density cabinet is customizable for small or large bottles, liquids, vials or storage, and fit an average of the same amount of inventory in 11 square feet as 160 linear feet of traditional shelving.
TCGRx SH300 / SH500 high-density shelving helps make bulk items more visible. The storage shelves are ideal for vial box storage, extra-large bulk storage, supplies, canisters and frequently used formulary. Both the SH300 and SH500 allow you to utilize flat or speed shelves and configure the height based in your inventory needs.
