TSAW Drones has partnered with Tata 1mg to transport diagnostic samples throughout the city. The samples will be carried by a drone, which can carry a payload of up to 6 kg and cover an aerial distance of 100 km.
The drones will be used to collect medical samples from various parts of the city and transport them to the Tata 1mg lab for processing, according to the company. They will also be used to transport medicines to remote areas. A single drone will be capable of carrying up to 150 samples.
Rimanshu Pandey Co-Founder & CTO, of TSAW Drones said, “Growth has thus far been concentrated in major cities. We aim to achieve egalitarian growth with the introduction of drones to the logistics sector. Our primary goal is good health for all. TSAW’s Partnership with TATA 1MG to improve healthcare facilities in diffrent areas is a step towards it.”
Tanmay Saksena Chief Operating Officer, Tata 1mg said, “We are delighted to open state-of-the-art Tata 1mg stores and a diagnostic lab in Dehradun, establishing our geographical footprint in Uttarakhand, which is a very important market for us. Due to its location advantage, fast-developing economy, and robust infrastructure, Dehradun was a natural choice to expand our operations in the North. The city lies at the centre of our strategy to serve other underserved markets in the state, such as Haridwar, Mussoorie, and Rishikesh. Tata 1mg is a name synonymous with trust. We look forward to offering a differentiated and elevated healthcare experience to the people of Dehradun with superior technology and systems. We will soon be opening many more Tata 1mg stores in Doon and the rest of Uttarakhand in the near future.”
“We look forward to leveraging drone technology in Dehradun to reduce sample transfer time and enable faster reports. Through this initiative, we want to provide the best of Tata 1mg’s services to an underserved market and change the landscape of diagnostics in the state,” said Saksena.
