BOZEN, SUD-TIROL, Italy, June 1, 2011 -

Health Robotics today announced a new exclusive distribution agreement
for its world-leading i.v.STATION ONCO, i.v.SOFT, and i.v.STATION products
with Dominican Republic-based leader Macrotech Farmaceutica. This new
exclusive partnership represents Health Robotics' entry into its 20th new
country over the past 2 years, persisting on its worldwide quest to
pervasively provide safe and cost-effective Intravenous Admixture Compounding
Automation to hospitals all over the world.

"On the heels of our 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
our vision for networked and redundant Oncology compounding devices is
rapidly taking hold all over the American continent", stated Gaspar DeViedma,
Health Robotics' Executive Vice President.

i.v.STATION ONCO represents Health Robotics' second generation Cancer
Therapy Compounding robot for syringes and I.V. Bags, introduced into the
market well before our competitors can even install their first solutions at
any global hospital, despite their 20+ year old fictional claims[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 marketed robots]; faster throughput [up to 40 doses per
hour]; automated tamper-evident syringe capping; and RFID support.

"Our 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
our 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", stated
Joaquin Toribio, Macrotech's General Manager.
