Selecting the right automation partner for your laboratory environment is critical to the long-term success of the project. Whether you are seeking to automate a single discipline or a multi-disciplinary blood sciences department, the overall goals and objectives are likely to be the same; namely, workflow efficiency and improved patient outcomes.
 
During this webinar, you will learn about the planning, implementation, and follow-up involved when considering laboratory automation. You will also hear from laboratories that have completed the process successfully—and the impact automation has had on turn-around time and staff morale. Efficient data management is integral to the entire automation configuration and is crucial to the success of the project. To confirm its impact, you will also hear about a user’s experience with CentraLink™ Data Management System, including a preview of the latest hematology module.

Finally, following efficient implementation and routine operation, discover how dedicated Lean/Six Sigma specialists can fine-tune “end-to-end” workflow procedures.
