Jedsy to launch drone-glider medical deliveries for German labs
Innovative Swiss UAV-glider company Jedsy is partnering with German medical group Asklepios Kliniken in a project to create a broad network of drone delivery routes between hospitals and labs that analyze patient blood, tissue, and other samples.
Under the pairing, Asklepios’s Medilys division of analysis and diagnostic labs will be connected with group facilities that take patient samples via drone deliveries operated by Jedsy. The plan is already laying the foundations for a first series of routes to be established and tested, with nearly 50 additional flight paths expected to be quickly added thereafter.
If completed, the venture would create a Jedsy drone delivery patchwork linking many of the nearly 170 healthcare operations Asklepios has assembled across Germany since its founding in 1985.
Central to the plan is Jedsy’s unusual tech approach to the standard medical UAV delivery paradigm. That begins with the Swiss startup’s…
