Features & Benefits

ADVIA® Automation Solutions let you cope with the demanding workloads by combining peak performance instruments with scalable sample management capabilities. This allows hospitals and commercial laboratories to transform their operations and prepare for the future.

ADVIA Automation Solution delivers peak performance thanks to its test exception management and holistic design processing.

Peak Performance
ACM Medical Laboratory in Rochester, New York, USA

ADVIA Automation Solution can handle the “what ifs” in your day. It has the ability to manage your workload and get the results completed on time to consistently meet your TAT goals. ADVIA Automation Solutions apply the right principles to deliver reliable results:

  • Single-tube transportation facilitates sample routing
  • Flexible, puck-based system simultaneously handles multiple tube sizes
  • Peak performance analytics with point-in-space technology efficiently manages heavy workloads
  • Optimal synchronization of track, analyzers, and informatics permits superior exception management without affecting capacity for handling routine workloads
  • Predictable, consistent TAT optimizes your workflow
  • Unified process manages your routine and STAT testing
  • Adapts to a variety of workload challenges - from 300 to more than 20,000 tubes per day

ADVIA Automation Solution optimizes your process by harnessing the power of your primary tube. You can combine multiple disciplines onto one platform:

Tube Aliquots Per Day
White Plains Hospital Center, New York, USA

Front-end specimen aliquots are eliminated by the combination of menu, point-in-space technology, and multi-step sorting. ADVIA Automation Solution creates a true core laboratory where operations and knowledge meet.

  • Immunochemistry specimens – urine, serum, or plasma – consolidated without exceptions.
  • Continuous operation – no need to pre-sort, triage, or separate
  • Routine and STAT testing combined into a single process
  • Individual tube management queuing STAT priorities consistently to meet ER expectations
  • Hematology, coagulation, and urinalysis included whenever needed

ADVIA Automation Solutions offer one of the key ways in which a lab can achieve maximum efficiency and productivity: by incorporating as many assays as possible into a common track system.

Expansive Menu

Eliminate workstations within the lab and streamline processes. ADVIA Automation Solutions consolidate several workstations with a comprehensive onboard menu:

  • Perform more than 275 assays for screening, diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of most disease states
  • Optimize your lab workflow without increasing your staff
  • Reduce your send-out expense while offering a broader menu
  • Expand into areas such as allergy, infectious disease, fertility, and other specialty testing

ADVIA Automation Solutions have built-in capacity to account for significant volume growth. The speed of the clinical automation system and the analyzers (chemistry and immunochemistry) will allow you to easily bring in more outreach business…
