When located in Odense, what makes you reach international hospitals faster? For the robot company Gibotech/Gibocare, the answer is a partnership with one of the big players on the Swedish health tech market, Getinge AB.

Getinge AB has reached a market value of around 2,6 billion euros delivering health tech equipment to the healthcare sector on 40 markets. The new partnership with Gibotech means that Getinge brings the Danish robot- and automation solutions, when they sell equipment to hospitals.

Fully automated sterile storage
For Gibotech the new collaboration is a shortcut to the market: “Through Getinge we get access to their relations to the hospital customers”, Henrik Anker, CEO, Gibotech explains. He believes that within this year, Gibotech will be able to hire around 20 employees, and become a company with 100 employees.

Gibotech, which is located in Odense, installed Denmark’s first fully automated sterile storage at Gentofte Hospital in 2011, and another one is being installed at Rigshospitalet. In these storages no hands touch the sterilized surgical instruments before they are unpacked at the operating Theatre. “That is a product we can basically sell to install all over the world”, Henrik Anker explains.
