Health Robotics today announced a new marketing and service channel for its world-leading i.v.STATION ONCO, i.v.SOFT, and i.v.STATION products with Kingdom of Saudi Arabia-based market leader Hospital Automation Technology (HAT).

Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics’ Executive Vice President, stated: “We are very pleased to improve our KSA-based marketing and technical support channels to Hospital Automation Technologies, replacing AHCSC. Just like we terminated non-performing channels throughout 2011, we will continue to diligently monitor channel performance worldwide, and to make necessary changes when appropriate, such as for instance when Health Robotics’ customers request upgraded service, as has been the case in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, demanding technical improvements”.

Abdulrahman Al-Duailij, General Manager of Hospital Automation Technology, stated: “Health Robotics is the only company in the world that provides hospitals and pharmacies with both Robotics and Non-Robotics’ based Intravenous Admixture Compounding Automation solutions for Chemotherapy, TPNs, Controlled Substances, Antibiotics, and other IVs. As Health Robotics is the undisputed global leader in the market with 10 times more installations that all of its competitors[1] combined, we are extremely fortunate to be able to bring Health Robotics’ life-critical medical devices to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, replacing AHCSC.”

Mr. DeViedma continued: “i.v.STATION ONCO represents Health Robotics’ 2nd Generation Cancer Therapy Compounding robot, several years ahead of its competition[1]. Amongst the technology innovations pioneered by i.v.STATION ONCO are its: ability to handle pre-attached lines to IV Bags; small footprint [at 15% to 25% of the size/weight of other I.V. Robots]; faster throughput [up to 40 doses per hour instead of 20 doses per hour]; automated tamper-evident syringe capping; and finally, RFID support. Together with i.v.STATION and i.v.SOFT products and their extreme price/value advantages over the competition[1], we expect to replicate in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia our worldwide market success on a long term basis.”
