Nanox Signs Agreement With The Gateway Group for the Deployment of 1,000 Nanox.ARC Units Across Australia, New Zealand, and Norway
March 2, 2020
NANO-X IMAGING LTD (www.nanox.vision) (“Nanox” or the “Company”), an innovative medical imaging technology company, announces it has secured an exclusive distribution deal with The Gateway Group (“Gateway”), one of Australia’s largest independent product distributors including health, wellness, medical supplies and devices.
The agreement has an initial term of three years and is renewable for an additional term of three years with both parties’ mutual consent. Subject to receiving local regulatory approvals, the parties will collaborate on the deployment and operation of 1,000 Nanox Systems comprised of the Nanox.ARC and the Nanox.CLOUD. The parties aim to provide medical imaging services across Australia, New Zealand and Norway at affordable prices for communities of varying socio-economic status.
The Nanox System will offer a range of medical imaging services, from 2D X-ray to 3D Tomosynthesis computed tomography. Nanox will provide the systems to Gateway once approved by the local regulatory authorities for deployment in areas that have little to no medical imaging facilities, as well as in major cities. The services are planned to be operated on a pay-per-scan business model and include online radiology diagnostics and medical AI decision assistive algorithms implementation. Nanox and Gateway’s joint initiative will target unit deployment in clinics and medical centers and Nanox will provide staff training and local support.
According to the agreement, Gateway agrees to guarantee a minimum service fee of $58 million per year for three years to Nanox.
“We plan to reach even the most remote locations on the globe with advanced medical imaging services,” says Ran Poliakine, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nanox. “The agreement with Gateway is the direct implementation of this strategy. We want medical imaging to be available in rural areas as well as major cities alike, and we look forward to working with the team at Gateway to help us realize this social agenda.”
Gateway provides a wide range of products to over 20,000 locations with representation of medical device companies such as BrainsWay, Dex and others. The transaction was formed with the help of the Southern Israel Bridging Fund (SIBF) who operate to identify and connect between Israeli and global companies for mutual business opportunities (https://sibf.vc/).
“Nanox has a unique business model that is designed to improve accessibility and affordability of early-detection services worldwide,” says Ricky Neumann, CEO of Gateway. “People in some countries who live in rural areas need to drive hours to get to a medical imaging facility and wait for months to get diagnostics results. We intend to change that with Nanox.”
