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.
