BOZEN, Italy, November 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Health-Robotics today announced that it has signed an exclusive 5-year strategic partnership with Arabian Health Care Supply Corporation (AHCSC-OLAYAN), the leading Medical Device, Pharmaceutical Automation and IV Solution provider within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. OLAYAN desires to safely, accurately, and cost-effectively automate the preparation of life-critical hazardous and non-hazardous IV Admixtures with Health Robotics' CytoCare(TM) and IV Station(TM) Robots. Under this strategic partnership, AHCSC-OLAYAN will take delivery of 32 CytoCare(TM) Robots and 175 IV Station(TM) Robots between now and December 31st 2013 for deployment at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Irak, Jordan, and Palestine.
"We are very pleased to have been chosen by Health Robotics as their GCC exclusive partner for these exciting new technologies. We are also proud to have been awarded the official tender process at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre for both CytoCare(TM) and IV Station(TM) Robots, the latter in direct competition with IHS' RIVA Robot. Not only did Health Robotics amply demonstrated the proof that our customers and pharmacy experts demanded, but it did so during this official procurement process at much lesser expense to our customers than the IHS' RIVA Robot, once all the true costs of deployment were accurately verified by the Hospital's Steering Committee. In addition, having had many years' experience with Pyxis, I can honestly say that IV Station(TM) has the real potential to revolutionize Pharmacy Automation for IVs patient doses globally", stated Othman Abahussein, General Manager, AHCSC-Olayan.
Health-Robotics has developed and installed the world's first and only
totally automated system for safe preparation of patient-specific hazardous
IV Admixtures in Europe, the United States of America, Asia-P
