Colorado Springs, CO – New Planet Technologies, Inc. and Micro Technologies, part of AmerisourceBergen, announced today a new partnership that would integrate New Planet’s cloud-based RxExpress solution with Micro Technologies innovative computerized systems to safely and accurately track and manage feed-grade Veterinary Feed Directives (VFD).

As of January 1, 2017, new U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations will become effective, requiring VFDs to be issued by a licensed veterinarian prior to the distribution of medicated feed or water. RxExpress is a cloud-based solution that allows a veterinarian to create, manage and retain VFDs in accordance with regulations. Micro Technologies’ proprietary computerized systems communicate automatically with RxExpress  to ensure that a valid VFD is in place prior to mixing medication into a feed order insuring compliance in real time.

“We’re excited to collaborate with New Planet Technologies and ensure customers have access to a necessary suite of solutions that will better allow them to manage their VFDs,” said Mark Shaw, president of Micro Technologies. “Together, we can not only help producers comply with the new VFD regulations and standards, but also improve food safety and increase efficiencies across the industry.”

Tyson Hartshorn, President and CEO of New Planet Technologies, Inc, says, “We are excited to work with Micro Technologies. Their cutting-edge automated feed and health management tools, combined with RxExpress, provides a seamless solution for ensuring compliance with FDA regulations from the creation of the veterinary feed directive through to the delivery of the medicated feed.”
