Cappucine Digital Dispensing System

Transferring formulations has never been this fast, exact, and simple.

With the introduction of the Cappucine digital dispensing system, a new era in compounding begins—revolutionizing the way stock formulations are transferred from EMP-Unguator® jars into patients’ smaller dispensing devices. When volume-digitalization is coupled with automation, Cappucine is born: multiplying productivity, consistency, and accuracy. Its easy-to-use, minimalist design allows the complexity of modern technology to operate with ease. Ticker™ topical applicators, pumps, jars, and syringes can now be filled with just the push of a button. With Cappucine, compounding will never be the same!
