Health Robotics has recently inked exclusive distribution agreement with Dominican Republic-based leader Macrotech Farmaceutica, marking its footprint in Latin America with its world-leading i.v.STATION ONCO, i.v.SOFT, and i.v.STATION products.
Company officials said that this new agreement marks Health Robotics' entry into its 20th new country over the past 2 years, offering safe and cost-effective Intravenous Admixture Compounding Automation to hospitals all over the world.
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President said that on the heels of their recent market entrance in Latin America and the continued success in the USA and Canada with 10 new contracts this quarter, this new exclusive partnership with Macrotech represents the realization that their vision for networked and redundant Oncology compounding devices is rapidly taking hold all over the American continent.
The company is planning to distribute its flagship product i.v.STATION ONCO, which is their second generation Cancer Therapy Compounding robot for syringes and I.V. Bags.
The verstaile i.v.STATION ONCO features the ability to handle pre-attached lines to IV Bags; small footprint (at 15% to 25% of the size/weight of other marketed robots); faster throughput (up to 40 doses per hour); automated tamper-evident syringe capping; and RFID support.
Joaquin Toribio, Macrotech's General Manager said that their upcoming installation of i.v.STATION and i.v.SOFT Assist in 2011 followed by i.v.STATION ONCO in early 2012 represents a major milestone for their company and for the exponential improvement of safe and sterile compounding at our customer sites.
“We are all very excited at Macrtotech Farmaceutica to complete Health Robotics' technical training this Summer, and to conduct already scheduled safe-compounding strategy sessions with Gaspar DeViedma and our regional thought leaders throughout this Fall", added Joaquin Toribio.
With locations in Santo Domingo, Miami, and other key sites throughout the Caribbean, Macrotech Farmaceutica is a pharmaceutical and biomedical engineering specialist in the healthcare sector.
