The project combined powerful diagnostics, IT, and total lab automation (TLA) to:
- reduce tube touches
- decrease turnaround time
- reduce repeat testing
- increase productivity
- decrease water consumption
Reduced Tube Touches by 77.5%
Combining multidisciplinary testing and sample preparation moves the organization closer to the possibility of one-touch testing.
Decreased Turnaround Time by 37.5%*
More than 96% of daily results meet the <6-hour turnaround time goal at the mega-volume Pardini reference laboratory.
Reduced Repeat Testing by 34%*
Automation, enhanced QC tools, and data- driven operational rules have reduced errors. The lab follows strict confirmatory testing protocols that comprise the majority of current repeat testing.
