Many of our specimens arrive during the evening and night shifts, yet they cannot be tested until the day shift because they require the use of time-consuming batch analyzers. After studying the arrival times for batched analytes (Figures 2 and 3), our options included performing these tests twice a day on the batch analyzers, finding random-access methods to handle these tests, or risk losing business because we couldn't do the testing as quickly as the client would like.
Technologists freed from operating and maintaining nine batch analyzers now perform tests that previously had to be sent out.
Our search narrowed the field to three instruments, each with specific technological advantages of its own: 1) a dedicated fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA) batch analyzer, 2) a random access multitest analyzer, and 3) a wet chemistry/TDM/toxicology batch analyzer.
