US healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson is acquiring a robotics company which specialises in developing surgical tools for diagnosing and treating patients with lung cancer. The company announced that it has agreed to buy Auris Heath for $3.4bn (£2.6bn) in cash, plus an additional $2.4bn in payouts if it reaches certain milestones. Auris Health developed a robotic scope used to monitor patients' lungs in order to better diagnose and treat lung cancer, which received regulatory approval in the US last year.  The privately held company was founded by Dr Fred Moll, who started his first medical device robotics company in 1995. He says Auris has focused thus far on tackling lung cancer as it is the deadliest cancer.
