80% of all diagnoses in hospitals rely upon the blood sample. Consequently, the transport of blood tube samples in a quick and safe way to the analytic equipment in the laboratory becomes extremely important. When up to 80% of all diagnoses rely upon the blood sample the actual way of transporting the tubes becomes important. Transportation of blood tube samples can happen in many different ways; manually by personal in the hospital or by mechanical equipment. Essential for all blood tube samples received in the laboratory is the quality of the blood samples. It has no value for laboratories to receive samples destroyed during the transport. G-forces, temperatures and duration of transport can harm the values of the blood tube samples.
One of the most gentle and safe ways of transporting blood tube samples is the transport system Tempus600®. Tempus600® is a dedicated transport system for small clinical samples that transports the samples by air in a closed pipe system. A constant speed assures gentle transportation and the speed of 7-10 meters per second gives the speed needed to receive the blood tube samples only a few seconds after they have been draw from the patient.
