Time is critical when transporting blood. Blood products must be delivered from refrigeration to the right patient in minutes. Speed of delivery for patient specimens can be equally as pressing. Potentially life-saving decisions rest on prompt lab results – and those are only possible if patient specimens reach the lab quickly and safely.
Automated material transport systems enable hospital staff to move blood and patient specimens efficiently – and most importantly, without jeopardizing their integrity. Autonomous mobile robot and pneumatic transport systems deliver blood and specimens from point to point faster than a person can walk. Plus, the systems eliminate the need for manual transport, freeing staff to focus on what they do best: caring for their patients.
Swisslog’s autonomous mobile robots and pneumatic tube systems help hospitals ensure blood and patient specimens reach the right personnel at the right location at the right time. Along with fast delivery, our automated material transport systems provide total chain-of-custody through automatic tracking and tracing, delivery verification and secure-send features.

Pneumatic Tube Systems
Delivering prompt, customized care is critical to improving the patient experience and ultimately enabling better patient outcomes. Swisslog’s family of pneumatic tube systems helps hospitals meet patient needs by efficiently transporting drugs, documents and specimens to and from nurses’ stations, labs, inpatient and outpatient pharmacies, blood banks and the ED.
RoboCourier® Autonomous Mobile Robot
Dramatically reduce manual transport tasks within the hospital by letting the RoboCourier do the walking for you. The RoboCourier Autonomous Mobile Robot transports lab specimens, medications and hospital supplies, enabling staff to remain focused on patient-related tasks. With more time spent on value-added tasks, overall turnaround times and throughput increase while the cost of labor decreases.
