B. Braun acquires exclusive rights to market, manufacture, license and support CytoCare

B.Braun Melsungen : 28 January, 2008  (New Product)
B. Braun and Health-Robotics has signed a long-term and exclusive strategic agreement for B. Braun to exclusively utilise Health-Robotics IV Admixture Automation Solutions worldwide within the oncology, pain management, antibiotics, radio pharmaca, and all other IV therapy and clinical nutrition.
B. Braun has also immediately acquired from Health-Robotics the long-term, exclusive rights to manufacture, assemble, market, license, provide installation and integration services and support for the CytoCare Robot in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Oceania, and most of Asia.

With its CytoCare Robot, Health-Robotics has developed the first totally automated system for safe preparation of patient-specific hazardous IV doses.

“CytoCare constitutes an advance for patient and clinician’s safety,” said Werner Rainer, general manager, Health-Robotics. “This strategic agreement with B. Braun combines state-of-the-art technologies to achieve the accuracy and sterility that providers require for automating patient-specific IV admixture preparations with B. Braun’s world-class organization. The resulting technology is the only totally automated system for handling hazardous IV admixtures available in the market. In addition, CytoCare is the only IV Admixtures Preparation Automated solution that enables global health care providers with flexibility to utilise a wide range of final IV containers”.

“Everyone within our company and customer base is extremely proud of being selected by an organization of the calibre and outstanding reputation of B. Braun”.

This agreement tightly fits with B. Braun’s mission of becoming the customer´s first choice for infusion therapy and providing world-class technology for IV pharmacy operations.

Markus Strotmann, senior vice president of strategic marketing for B. Braun Melsungen noted, 'B. Braun is very pleased to reach a long-term strategic agreement with Health-Robotics. We have closely worked with Health-Robotics for approximately one year market-testing the concept of CytoCare and conducting technical due diligence. We hope that this strategic collaboration with Health-Robotics grows over time in delivering improved Patient safety solutions to B. Braun’s customers in areas beyond oncology and to continue the integration work we initiated last year with our industry-leading Ecoflac and EasyPump solutions. Such an end-to-end solution for IV Therapy will also help drive down the complexity, medication errors, initial cost and daily operating expenses - which are key issues for healthcare organizations”.
