Fresenius Kabi is offering Rocuronium Bromide injection with advanced RFID-enabled labels. 

The product is the generic of Zemuron.

Rocuronium Bromide injection is part of Fresenius Kabi's +RFID portfolio of smart-labeled medications, designed to help enhance patient safety and support a more-efficient medication inventory process. This will mark the first +RFID product compatible with Bluesight’s KitCheck product, a kit and tray solution for American hospitals allowing +RFID products to be used across all major RFID kit and tray vendors.

The company said that using RFID technology with pharmaceutical products supports a safe, more efficient medication inventory process that eliminates manual product tagging and data entry and may help improve patient safety by reducing medical errors.
