  • Drones being used commercially to deliver great healthcare to Indians in the most rural locations appears to be a possibility now. In the United States’ Redcliffe Labs, a division of Redcliffe Lifetech, has completed its first commercial drone flight in the healthcare sector.
  • Between Uttarkashi and Dehradun, the business just launched a commercial drone corridor.
  • The collaboration between Redcliffe and Skye Air resulted in 40 successful trials in North India over the last three months.
  • Redcliffe Lab transported a payload of 5 kilograms in air temp boxes from Gyansu, Uttarkashi, to Vivek Vihar, Dehradun, a distance of 60 kilometres by air.
  • From June 10, 2022, the business stated it will “operate two flights daily for both routine and specialised test sample collecting.”
  • By 2027, the diagnostic service provider hopes to have reached at least 500 million Indians. Jain stated that the corporation “plans to employ drone technology to gather Dx samples” as one of the several approaches to meet this goal.
