Beckman Coulter celebrates labs that have chosen to increase efficiencies and reduce costs through lab automation
Behind every diagnosis is a patient and physician in need of answers. More than ever before, clinical laboratories are under tremendous pressure to deliver the diagnostic answer faster and with uncompromised quality even with a larger workload and less staff. The sheer magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic created a need for lab managers to embrace automation as a solution for improving turnaround times and reducing manual steps – using technology to reduce bottlenecks, process samples, and identify errors faster than humans.1 These improvements meant that laboratorians could refocus their precious time on higher-value activities.
Recognizing the need for labs of all sizes to gain efficiencies and cost savings, Beckman Coulter continued to innovate their automation line, bringing two state-of-the-art solutions: the DxA 5000 for labs processing more than 3 million tests per year and the DxA 5000 Fit for labs processing 1-3 million tests per year.
With a presence in over 20 countries, we proudly celebrated our 100th installation. The 100th installation took place in Savona, Italy, a laboratory that was looking for a new paradigm of flexibility to manage its clinical diagnostic workload.
