In partnership with Beckman Coulter Diagnostics, the Grady core laboratory's launch of the Power Express automation line provides state-of-the-art hematology and chemistry diagnostic capabilities, as well as workflow process improvements.
"Utilizing advanced medical technology to improve efficiency, while providing fast and reliable results to clinicians that meet our high quality standards, is a vital component in our efforts to enhance patient care," said Dr. Karen Mann, Grady's Medical Director of Clinical Laboratories. "Beckman Coulter offers us cutting-edge capabilities as well as a true partnership to help build and develop workflow efficiencies."
Grady performs approximately 13 million tests annually. The laboratory is now able to deliver even more efficient results with the addition of the Beckman Coulter Power Express automation line; it consolidates multi-disciplinary workflow with a single point of entry for all core laboratory disciplines such as hematology, immunoassay and chemistry.
"Every diagnostic test represents a patient who deserves fast, reliable results. Beckman Coulter has developed a strong partnership with Grady to identify and implement workflow improvements and help centralize their diagnostics needs into a core laboratory that will provide the best patient outcomes," said David Varner, Beckman Coulter vice president, global sales operations.
