cato® is Unique.

cato® offers a comprehensive overall solution. Be it security, ease of use, or flexibility: cato® is unrivalled on every score.

Lower Costs

Costs can be reduced considerably with the help of the integrated management of surplus substances. Besides, cato® also improves communication between wards and pharmacies so that even if a therapy is cancelled at short notice the relevant information will arrive in time. Moreover, pharmacy staff can work much more efficiently because monitoring production requires much less time.


Integrated therapy planning and dose monitoring ensures that wrong medication is avoided. Detailed protocols allow you to understand every single step of the production process. An integrated user management with user profiles allows a flexible issuing of authorisations. Preparations can be identified by weight or barcode.


cato® is designed to allow fast and efficient preparation without a single keystroke. Documentation is completed when the production process is finished. All relevant data can be found quickly whenever necessary through smart search and navigation options. Direct access to diagnostic data and the protocol database make it much easier for you to plan therapies without losing precious time searching through case histories.

The gravimetric preparation module ensures safe and efficient preparation processes at unprecedented speed.


The preparation module offers the precision and safety of the gravimetric method. Depending on the formulas entered, cato® calculates every dosage with greater precision than nomograms would allow.


cato® is absolutely flexible in every respect. Relative dosages, for example, may relate not only to m2 of body surface area, but to any measured or computed diagnostic data. The relevant calculation formulas can be created by users according to their own needs. This makes cato® a truly future-proof solution.
