Features & Benefits
Achieve greater lab productivity by reducing the number of sample tubes required for analysis and get more efficient use of qualified staff for other critical tasks. This lab automation system reduces errors and results in shorter, more predictable turnaround times. Get more with less. StreamLAB Automation Solutions’ flexible and scalable multi-discipline architecture allows your lab to evolve with changing needs as new technologies become available. Enhance management of your lab by easily connecting other Siemens analyzers. StreamLAB Automation Solutions let you create one of the most comprehensive menus available,and reduce the need to send samples out for additional testing.
StreamLAB Automation Solutions offer an extremely compact and complete platform for hospital laboratories that need to accomplish more with less. By combining the most advanced immunochemistry analyzers and smart pre- and post-analytical capabilities streamlines your testing processes to accelerate your diagnostics service.
Using StreamLAB Automation Solutions, you can achieve faster and more predictable turnaround time (TAT). Timely and consistent lab services deliver superior lab performance allowing healthcare institutions to accelerate patient care. Typically, there are two separate areas.
The first is the pre-analytical area where you are currently receiving, centrifuging, sorting for analysis (by workstation), aliquoting specimens, and potentially loading into instrument-specific racks. The other is the analytical process where you are currently operating a variety of workstations to produce technically valid lab results. StreamLAB Automation Solutions integrate these two processes into a single workstation, applying lean principles:
- Single-tube transportation to facilitate sample routing
- Flexible, puck-based system to handle multiple tube sizes simultaneously
- Analytics with point-in-space technology to efficiently manage the workload
- Optimal synchronization of track, analyzers, and informatics to permit superior exception management without affecting capacity for handling routine workloads
- Predictable, consistent TAT
- Unified process to manage routine and STAT testing
StreamLAB Automation Solutions optimize the use of the primary specimen, drastically eliminating unnecessary steps that are time-consuming, error-prone, and do not add value: such as sample pre-analytical sorting and aliquoting.
One single automated process will accelerate your diagnosis and improve patient care while increasing process efficiency and lab productivity. StreamLAB Automation Solutions completely manage the sample flow (load, unload, sort, search, exceptions), while the data management system manages the information flow (results, QC, calibration). Siemens analyzers provide rich information (flagging) that helps ensure that material flow is easily managed by your technician.
StreamLAB Automation Solutions consolidate both routine and STAT workload in a single testing process. The extensive menu allows you to reduce send-out testing, further optimizing total operational costs. Provide improved services to your physicians and drive volume and revenue through lab outreach.
StreamLAB Automation Solutions are powered by three analytical engines that deliver the most extensive menu available in one single platform: more than 275 assays. This allows the comprehensive screening, diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of disease states.
The limited space required to automate your lab minimizes renovation required and allows labs to use existing floor space in the most efficient manner. StreamLAB Automation Solutions have a small footprint —
Compared with equivalent automation solutions― based on throughput, STAT menu back-up, and overall menu―from other vendors. The compact, flexible design gives you the exact solution you need while minimizing cost.
