SRL Diagnostics, Skye Air Mobility to revolutionise logistics in diagnostics industry

06 April 2022 | News

Drone delivery technology will be used in the Gurugram and Mumbai region to transport pathology samples

Skye Air Mobility, a drone delivery logistics provider has signed a long-term agreement with SRL Diagnostics. The partnership between Skye Air Mobility & SRL Diagnostics is expected to revolutionise logistics in the diagnostics industry.

This partnership is unique in the pathology sector since it will leverage drone delivery technology to create a faster supply chain for collecting samples and transporting them to labs in Gurugram and Mumbai.

The duo will conduct BVLOS drone delivery trial flights in designated green zones in Gurugram and Mumbai regions. From April 8 onwards, around 60 test flights would be undertaken from Fortis Hospitals/Collection centres to SRL Labs in both cities.

Anand K, CEO, SRL Diagnostics said, “We are shortly beginning our eight-day trial in Mumbai, and Gurugram. Post the successful trial, long-range deliveries will also begin which will be particularly useful in congested locations, hilly regions, and mountainous terrain. This will help us build efficiencies for specialised and super-specialised tests that are typically performed only at our Global Reference Laboratories. Since the time taken for sample transfer is cut down, we will have better temperature control for samples, especially during the summer months.”
