– SPAIN, Barcelona – Rob Surgical today announced that the company has closed a €5 million investment round with the Dutch holding Scranton Enterprises to fund the final phase of the new Bitrack System and launch the product on the market.
The Bitrack System will be an alternative to the current laparoscopy surgical robot Da Vinci, and will be an improvement on what is currently available in terms of efficiency.
“This investment will allow us to obtain CE certification in 30 months,” said Jaume Amat, CEO of Rob Surgical and president of CataloniaBio & HealthTech.
“The value proposition that differentiates us from other surgical robots is based on three cornerstones: high precision benefiting the patient, superior usability for the surgeon and a significant total cost of ownership reduction benefiting hospitals”, explains Amat.
The new robot has already been technically validated in experimental models, used by surgeons from the Mayo Clinic (United States) and the Barcelona university hospitals Clinic, Vall d’Hebron and Germans Trias. Between 2019 and 2021 Rob Surgical will build three new units to finalize the validation and industrialization process, will expand the corporate and engineering team and will conduct the final safety and functionality trials.
