Laboratory solutions of today are a multifunctional matter. The laboratory solution must be capable of handling the analyses of millions of clinical samples with focus not only on the result of the analyses but with due respect to safety, quality, working environment, advanced working processes and a constant view on costs per sample being analysed.
Over the last many years numbers of analyses in hospitals have increased with up to double-digit percentage annually so cost per analysis must be reduced as well. Compiling all these matters in effective laboratory solutions is a key issue in hospitals of today.
A central focus in all solutions is “time”. The less time spent per sample being analysed the lower the cost. From decentralized hospital laboratories with a number of smaller laboratories spread over the campus of the hospital, the new laboratory solutions go for centralized mega laboratories where essential competences of the laboratory staff can be used in the most optimal way.
A key element in efficient laboratory solutions is a dedicated transport system for samples only. The Tempus600 system can transport the clinical samples from the ward where the samples have been taken directly in to the laboratory analysis equipment.
In fully automated mega laboratories multiple Tempus600 installations plays an essential part of modern laboratory solutions as they meet and support the demand for cost reduction per sample being analyzed, with respect to safety, demand for high quality, good working environment and optimal use of staff competences.
