Today, internal blood transport in a hospital is not just a thing to be done together with the normal routine, it is a very important link in a big logistic chain. When the transport is just in time you obtain the lowest possible waiting time for the patient.
All study's shows that the weak part in a process is when people must prioritize samples, especially when we are talking staff that are already talking many important decisions in a normal working day. To clean up the waste of time you need to implement some kind of automation to run the blood transport with the FIFO (first in, first out) principle and just in time.
When this is done the blood transport will be changed from a variable time factor to a fixed time, every time. There is a lot of hospitals that are using big pneumatic transport tubes to reduce the time, but this way of blood transport has it’s weak points: The human handling in both ends off the carriers and also the waiting time of sending because this is a centralized system that are using the same "high way" for different kinds of items.
We need to make a priority of the blood transport. The dedicated system Tempus600 can ensure a every time maximum fixed time. No handling of canisters, no waiting time for other transport, and no human in between the drawing of blood and the analyzing of blood - only the Tempus600. Knowing that the blood transport are having a fixed time of e.g. 30 seconds from the sending in the ward to the receiving in the laboratory you remove a variable in the total process and can focus on the analysis of the sample and sending the result to the doctors. That is why, it is important with a dedicated blood transport system.
