Nearly 200.000 blood samples are taken each year, across these three hospitals in Sweden.
“Before Tempus600 there were many handling and manual steps involved in getting blood samples to the laboratory, either by a traditional pipeline or by technicians walking the blood samples there.
We ran a test showing the time spent, from when a sample was taken until we got it at the laboratory, and it really was an eye opener.”, explains Andreas Matussek.
Andreas Matussek did not know of Tempus600 when he started a project at the three Jönköping hospitals to improve the efficiency of the laboratories.
“I saw the Tempus600 movie on YouTube and thought: ‘Nice invention’. We then visited a Danish hospital to see the system in use, and I was convinced right away that the concept could solve our transportation problem,” says Andreas Matussek. The results did not disappoint.
“The turnaround time for acute blood samples has been significantly reduced and we have increased efficiency, that is certain.”, says Andres Matussek.
