BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, December 3, 2010 - Health Robotics today announced that it recently signed an exclusive
cooperation agreement for Grifols to significantly contribute to its I.V.
Room of the Future Initiative with its Misterium state-of-the-art Clean Room
products and I.V. Therapy and Clinical Nutrition scientific knowledge and
experience. The agreement also includes the appointment of Grifols'
scientific expert Dr. Oriol Prat as an additional member of Health Robotics'
Scientific Advisory Board, where he will join representatives of The
Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Ochsner Clinic, Sutter Health, USC University
Hospital, and The University of Chicago Medical Center.
"Grifols has designed and constructed more than 1.2 million square feet
of clean rooms worldwide and managed more than 150 modular clean room
installations at hospitals. After witnessing the outstanding combined results
of the joint implementation of Misterium and i.v.STATION at Vall d'Hebron
University Hospital in Barcelona, I was convinced that global hospitals stand
to greatly benefit from the synergies between the respective companies'
experience, products, and services within the I.V. Room Technology sector,"
stated Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President.
"Among the advantages of Misterium modular clean rooms over conventional
construction include their flexible, convenient and fast construction,
usually within 2 to 4 weeks, with minimal disruption to the pharmacy's
operations, ease of maintenance, GMP compliance, and integrated training
tools and workflow analysis," stated Xavier Guix, Vice President of Marketing
for Grifols' Hospital System Division.
