An automated laboratory system means quicker response time and a smoother workflow for the benefit of both patient and hospital staff. Blood samples are part of about 80% of all diagnoses and because blood samples are so central to the diagnosis today, it is important that your blood sample is analyzed promptly.
Laboratory automation, and the growing emergence of robotics, have transformed the typical workday for many people working in this field. Thanks to the creativity, imagination, and hard work of researchers and companies, scientists can set up, run, and analyze the results of experiments in a fraction of the time they needed in the past. They can also accomplish tasks with less hands-on intervention than ever before. As a result, associate scientists and technicians, who used to spend their days performing tasks of tedious repetition now have the time to think creatively about the implications of their experimentation and to design effective follow-up projects or develop alternative approaches to their work.
For the patients, the automated laboratory system means a much faster response time, and if you have been hospitalized, your doctor will be able to include the blood tests result in your diagnosis, and you will receive treatment within an hour.
In short, the conclusion is, that all patients benefit from the fact, that hospitals' laboratories are becoming more and more automated with shorter response times and the possibility of much faster patient treatment.
The Tempus600 has in many respects become part of the laboratories' total automation, because the fast response-times by using Tempus600 for transporting blood-samples have proven crucial, when it comes to correct treatment of patients.
In addition, the new automatic system increases patient safety, because the manual workflow has been reduced.
The automated system performs the actual analysis work and detects, that the blood sample has arrived in the laboratory. The automated system sorts the samples, puts them in centrifuges, takes the plugs of the test tubes etc.
Tempus600 pipeline connects directly to the laboratory, where blood samples are transported through a 25 mm tube directly connected to the automated laboratory system.
With the possibility of the direct connection to the automation at the laboratories, Tempus600 plays a crucial role in delivering a much faster response time.
