The clinical laboratory of the Ghent University Hospital in Belgium decided to renew its existing automation, including in the pre-analytical part of the laboratory, and to expand the automation to include the post-analytical part of the laboratory.
The hospital needed fast, safe, and dedicated transportation system for blood samples. They decided to invest in the Tempus600® system because it was an ideal solution.
The system transports approximately 100,000 samples annually and has reduced the total turnaround time by approximately 15 minutes.
The hospital expanded its automation system because of the benefits, and in just on year, went from having one Tempus600® system to having four.
The hospital already has a conventional transportation system and the combination with Tempus600® has proven to be successful. Compared to conventional transport systems, Tempus600® allows the hospital to better control the process.
Faster, predictable turnaround time
Improved, automated workflows in the wards and the laboratory
Reduction of peak loads in the conventional transport system
Better control of the process
