Faster Results, Higher Throughput, Increased Efficiency
Labor Blackholm MVZ

Labor Blackholm MVZ achieved aggressive workflow and optimization goals with innovative systems and performance services from Siemens Healthineers.

Watch how Siemens Healthineers helped Labor Blackholm MVZ restructure their laboratory for improved efficiency.

"We achieved significant reduction in manual hands-on time with implementation of our new chemistry and immunoassay systems. We can easily handle increased volume in even less time than on our previous system." Dr. med. Helmut Lang, Medical Director

Key Outcomes and Benefits:

  • Mean clinical chemistry turnaround time (TAT), including reruns and dilutions, was reduced from 40 to 22 minutes (45%).
  • Mean immunoassay TAT, including reruns, was reduced from 57 to 34 minutes (40%).
  • Decreased manual interventions in the pre- and post-analytical phases using a combination of system and automation features, such as intelligent sample routing and onboard aliquot retention, repeats and dilutions.
  • Throughput increased from 4400 to 5880 samples per day (34%) while the number of analyzers decreased by 30%.
  • Overtime costs were reduced by improving staff utilization, conducting more tests with fewer processes, and minimizing manual intervention.
