Workflow—Sample Status Management and Filters

Watch Video Tutorial — Learning objectives: Using visual cues to manage workflow

With today’s busy lab environment and the demand to deliver quality test results on time, you need a simple and efficient way to keep track of your testing process to determine where the critical tests and samples are, when you need to take action, and what you need to do.

Watch as Nick Hlinka from Siemens’ Global Product Support & Service demonstrates how to use the Sample Status Overview window in the Siemens’ CentraLink™ Data Management System workspace to manage workflow. This CentraByte tutorial will also show how to customize visual cues to meet your lab’s specific needs.

For example:

  • Use a visual dashboard to let you know when a sample needs attention, or that all is okay.
  • Set the dashboard to refresh at intervals you define.
  • Customize filters to define conditions when you want to be alerted.
