Looking for a safe and fast way to get your blood samples from the point of being drawn to your laboratory, getting reliable answers quicker? The Tempus600 point-to-point system offers just that.
The Tempus600 point-to-point solution is developed especially for the purpose of transporting blood samples and small clinical samples from the different departments in the hospitals to the laboratory. Here it is connected directly to the automation system, to prevent the blood samples from being affected by various common factors which can affect the total turn-around time of blood samples.
Here is the point!
Implementing the Tempus600 point-to-point system for the blood sample transportation in your hospital eliminates a whole range of unnecessary but common implications:
• No more batching of blood samples
• No packaging of samples
• No opening of sample carriers
• No risk of misdeliveries
• No delays in dispatching samples
• No delays in receiving samples
• No risk of collisions
• No stops or changes along the way
• No more handling of the samples
• No impact on blood properties
• No impact on blood quality
• No special handling of STAT samples required
How does it work?
Simply place the blood sample in the “loading hole” in the sending unit located in the department directly after having drawn the blood. The sending unit sends the sample through the point-to-point transport tube directly connected to the automation in the laboratory. Here it is automatically lifted up and on to the automation track. As simple as that!
By implementing the Tempus600 point-to-point system the ToTAT (Total-turn-around-time) is significantly reduced. Consequently the efficiency of the blood sample transportation is increased and abundance of benefits can be realized in different areas of a hospital.
Get the point?
Some of the many derivations of implementing the Tempus600 point-to-point system:
Patients and doctors waiting for the results of the blood samples will know earlier, resulting in the patient being allocated to the right department earlier and the treatment of the patient can begin sooner. Or on the other hand, the patient can be comforted and send home without unnecessarily occupying hospital beds.
The direct and steady arrival of blood samples frees up human competences in the laboratory and wards, as no handling is need, and hence no unnecessary time is spent on this. Instead resources are utilized better and where needed.
The steady flow of samples reduces the peak of sample arrivals and thus significantly minimizes the strain on lab equipment and instrumentation, while increasing the timely production of analyses.
Other transportation systems relying on receiving other goods experience less bottleneck situations due to the removal of the large amount of blood samples from the system.
