Delivering medical samples by drone is faster, cleaner, safer and cheaper, claims Diego Cerutti, manager of the healthcare unit at Franco-Luxembourgois logistics group, Flash. It has developed its own packaging unit and attached it to a drone with a range of 20 miles that will be tested with real samples this summer. A consortium has come together to grow the project and Flash has already received calls from interested lab groups and hospitals in France, Belgium and Luxembourg. And this is not a pipe dream – Cerutti is talking about 2017 or 2018.
