On October 9, 2019 ABB opened their first Laboratory Robotics Center at the Texas medical Center (TMC) in Houston
On the TMC campus, ABB’s team will collaborate with medical staff, scientists and customers from the healthcare industry on the research and innovation of non-surgical medical robotics systems. This will include logistics and next-generation automated laboratory technologies, extending also to patient care. The team’s research will contribute to eliminating bottlenecks in laboratory work and addressing the global shortage of skilled medical and hospital staff. ABB sees significant potential in combining TMC’s research excellence with ABB’s comprehensive portfolio of automation solutions and working together toward enhancing speed, safety and consistency in laboratories and hospitals around the world.
