”I heard about the Tempus600 from a colleague, when the hospital in Kolding had just bought the system, and my immediate thought was that, if it worked, it could save us a fortune.”, says Christian Maegaard, Project Manager in technology and automation at Odense University Hospital in Denmark.
At that time, Odense University Hospital was debating whether to use a traditional pneumatic system to transport blood samples from its outpatient clinic. However, the idea of a lightning fast pipeline dedicated to such samples opened up the possibility of additional benefits.
After seeing a demonstration model set up at the Timedico head office in Bording, Denmark and, later, a recently installed system at Kolding Hospital, the decision of investing in Tempus600 was made - and the results have more than met the expectations:
“With the Tempus600, it takes only 29 seconds from when the blood is drawn until it reaches the laboratory. That leads to quicker results, and to quicker and better treatment. The system helps us obtain more accurate diagnoses and pro- vide better patient care.”, says Christian Maegaard.
