BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Health Robotics today reported 32 new contracts in 2Q2012, continuing its three-year dominance of the global Sterile Compounding Automation market. On a year-to-date basis, 2012 new contracts reached an all-time record of 63 new contracted installations over the last 6-month period, a three-fold increase in sales bookings year-over-year. Health Robotics continued to consistently demonstrate that it is the only real choice in the Sterile Compounding Automation market, even beating its major competitor (Intelligent Hospital Systems-RIVA) in its own Canadian market.
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President and Board Member, stated: "I'm delighted with such strong 2Q2012 results, especially following our record 1Q sales and also following Health Robotics' winning 100% of all worldwide I.V. Robot's publicly announced purchases in 2010 and 2011. Hospital pharmacists have widely recognized the undeniable fact that Health Robotics' 2nd Generation modular architecture of networked medical devices are fully automated, offer 3 to 4 times faster speed/throughput, for less than half the price, size, and weight than its global competitors, and delivering payback periods/R.O.I. of less than 1 year."
During 2Q2012, Health Robotics and/or some of its partners (Sandoz Canada, Grifols, SinoPharm, Rivosem, Tosho, S&T, and PharmaTech) signed 32 new installations under contract, including 14 I.V. Robots, and 18 i.v.SOFT agreements at: Regina Hospital (Canada), Pasqua Hospital (Canada), Scripps Health (USA), SAHZ Haarlem (Holland), Albert Einstein Cancer Center (Brazil), Istanbul Capa University Hospital (Turkey), Ankara Numune Hospital (Turkey), University Hospital Brno (Czech Republic), and 309 Military Hospital (China), amongst others.
Mr. DeViedma concluded: "I'm thrilled to continue the market momentum that Health Robotics had already generated in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific after it terminated non-performing indirect sales channels and decided to enter direct sales in certain key countries. This dominant market momentum has now expanded to Brazil, China, and other growing economies. 2Q2012 new sales included 7 Oncology robots for hazardous medications, and an additional 7 robots for non-hazardous sterile compounding, including the first 2 i.v.STATION robots sold in Turkey and the first i.v.STATION sold in Czech Republic.
