The automated syringe filling system is a bench-top device designed to remove human error when filling a syringe. The microcontroller powered system will hold multiple medicine types that will fill a single syringe with a user specified amount of one medicine to a precise degree and log this information against a remote database of patient information. Before the system can be accessed, the user’s credentials will be checked against the database of authorized users. Once verified a touch screen will be used to enter user input that will be logged to a remote database. The microcontroller will then control the actuators and servo to fill the syringe with the appropriate amount of medicine. The system will automate the process of filling a syringe and remove the element of human error from the syringe filling equation.
