Thammasat University Hospital, which has 450 beds and treats over 1,500 outpatients every day, installed one Tempus600® Vita system in the outpatient department (OPD) supporting eight blood sample collection stations and another Tempus600® Vita system close to the Central Laboratory, where it is the main collector for the hospital’s Inpatient department (IPD), transporting blood samples from all of the hospital’s wards.
Tempus600® Vita is a fast and reliable and integrates with the Laboratory Automation System, streamlining the hospital’s Central Laboratory workflow, saving time and improving turnaround. The IPD Tempus600® Vita now transports 400–500 blood samples every day and the OPD Tempus600® Vita transports up 2,000 blood samples every day, with peak rates of setting of up to 570 blood samples per hour.
The Tempus600® Vita systems transport blood samples to the Central Laboratory, which is 200 m away. The hospital is so pleased with the efficiency gains that it plans to upgrade to a Tempus600® Quantit system in the middle of 2020.
