Blood transportation in hospitals can be divided into different tasks.
The first type is blood bags which are heavy and big but not necessarily a large number. The second type is blood culture which variates in sizes but a limited number. The third type is the small clinical samples, mainly blood samples, which are sized to fit in automation in the laboratory. These samples are transported in huge numbers every day.
In the case of blood bags and blood culture, a standard transport system or porters can do the tasks. But when it comes to blood samples a reliable, fast, and dedicated transport system is needed. 80% of all decisions on a hospital are based on test results from blood samples. That is why a controlled turnaround time is needed - also called ToTAT (Total Turnaround Time). To control the Total Turnaround Time the transport system must be reliable, have high uptime and, it must be easy to use and need very little maintenance.
Tempus600 is a system dedicated to blood transportation in hospitals and it ensures a controlled Total Turnaround Time. Just send the sample as it is, no wrapping, no programming, no batching just insert the sample, and seconds later it will be in the lab. The system is 100% FIFO (First In, First Out).
The number of blood samples taken in hospitals increases with 7-10% a year and to make the right treatment decision, it is of utmost importance to ensure optimal blood transportation in hospitals.
