When UMC Groningen in the Netherlands decided to rebuild the hospital’s two phlebotomy sections, workflow and easy handling for the phlebotomists.
Kor Kooi, Lab Manager at UMC Groningen, has been responsible for the introduction of the two Tempus600® systems at the hospital. He is very positive about the collaboration and implementation of the systems.
In a year the two Tempus600® sending stations sends more than 200,000 blood samples. Mr. Kooi is very satisfied with the solution, as there has not been any unexpected breakdowns. The staff find it easy to work with the system.
Mr. Kooi says that as a result of using Tempus600, they expect to save costs and increase efficiency in the departments involved in the process. Furthermore, he is convinced that when the new laboratory is finally completed in 2018, a new bulk loader for receiving the samples will be installed at the laboratory, and then they will see further savings and greater efficiency.
