The KL1 compact tablet counter has become Kirby Lester’s most successful product launch in its history, the Lake Forest, Ill., company announced.

“We hit a nerve with the KL1. Our customers tell us they have always liked our tablet counters over the years, but they simply love this new device,” said Christopher Thomsen, vice president of business development. “We set out to ‘make a better mousetrap,’ and that old saying came true. Our pharmacy and manufacturing customers have beaten a path to our door.”

The KL1 was launched by Kirby Lester only 6 months ago. The 41-year-old company attributes the product’s success to several factors:

  • The world’s smallest tablet counter (6 inches high and 12 inches wide) has about the same footprint as the old-fashioned counting tray.

  • It counts 15-18 tablets per second

  • It has new functions like Inventory Mode and a new tray design

The KL1 is the company’s fifth new product launch in 5 years.
