Solaris Disinfection Inc., a leader in IoT-connected service robotics, whose flagship Lytbot automated dis- infection system is currently being used by hospitals across North America in the battle against COVID-19, announces the acquisition of Jetbrain Robotics, an inno- vator in hospital logistics and patient experience using autonomous mobile robotics (AMR). Invested in and sup- ported by world-class investors Brinc & Artesian Venture Partners (AVP), Jetbrain's technology improves opera- tional workflows in complex healthcare environments, providing quantifiable efficiencies and patient experience improvements. Since 2017, Solaris has conducted research on the effectiveness of its pulsed UV technology against communicable human respiratory viruses like novel coronaviruses (COVID-19). "COVID has accelerated robotics deploy- ment by five years," said Adam Steinhoff, Co-Founder, and CEO, Solaris. "In continuing our mission to improve the safety of patients and support healthcare workers, we identi- fied Jetbrain's technology as an opportunity to improve upon our core products while providing safety, accountability and compli- ance-based platform technologies that help our customers effectively utilize resources and improve workflows." Adds Val Ramanand, co-founder and executive chairman, Solaris, "At Solaris we are very proud of the growing impact we make on a daily basis in the healthcare industry by delivering practical and approachable prod- ucts, designed to improve patient outcomes and healthcare operations. The acquisition of Jetbrain supports our continued mission to improve care, keep spaces safe, and ultimately help save lives in healthcare facilities globally." Jetbrain products include delivery robots that feature a secure and traceable chain of custody for medicines and blood products, as well as patient experience robots that provide anything from clinical support to wayfinding help. The addition of Jetbrain's team enhances Solar- is's expertise in healthcare robotics while extending its offering from whole room disinfection to automated delivery, logistics, and ultimately patient experience, thus delivering industry's first ecosystem approach to healthcare robotics.
