The latest innovation in hospital laboratory material-transport robotics is on display at the AACC (American Association for Clinical Chemistry) Clinical Lab Expo in Houston (TX, USA), from July 30-August 1, 2013.

Swisslog (Buchs, Switzerland), a global provider of integrated logistics solutions for warehouses, distribution centers, and hospitals, is staging the premier of its next-generation RoboCourier Autonomous Mobile Robot at the Clinical Lab Expo. Attendees can see the new RoboCourier in action at Swisslog's booth no. 4408.

The new RoboCourier features a complete redesign for better ergonomics and serviceability, updated software, improved storage capacity, and automatic interfaces for doors and elevators. The robot provides a system for secure transport of up to 45 kilograms of laboratory specimens, medications, supplies, and protected health information. It offers the smallest footprint available for automated transport and recharges from a standard wall outlet. A 360 degree turn radius allows RoboCourier to navigate tight spaces and narrow and crowded hallways, making it ideal for both intra- and inter-department deliveries.

Use of the RoboCourier will enable hospitals to automate scheduled and on-demand deliveries of laboratory samples, medications and other materials. Its autonomous operation frees users for more-critical activities.

"Automating manual transport of samples and medications frees technicians to focus on tasks that service patients," said Sandy Agnos, RoboCourier product manager at Swisslog. "Hospitals with RoboCourier have a simple, lean solution for improving their workflow processes without facility modification and can see a return on their investment in less than a year."
