Learn how Fresno Community Regional Medical Center transformed pre-analytical processes through automation.

Enhance operational efficiency
  • The Power Express laboratory automation system connects all core disciplines on one line, providing a single point of entry for our best-in-class clinical chemistry, immunoassay and hematology analyzers, with the flexibility to connect with select third-party analyzers
  • Prioritize STAT samples by placing into the system via dedicated STAT rack
  • Alleviate non-value added activities from all steps in your process—from pre– to post-analytical—by up to 63%*
Focus on improving quality
  • Help reduce errors by automating pre– and post-analytical processes while decreasing human intervention
  • Increase diagnostic confidence by focusing your high-value resources on critical results and exceptions
Drive TAT improvements
  • The Power Express lab automation system helps drive sample processing through intelligent sample management allowing for the right tube to be sent at the right time based on testing requirements and instrument workload
  • Expedite sample analysis with the rapid processing speed, centrifugation time and unloading of samples
Prepare for future growth
  • Address increased volume and test menu needs with high-quality instrumentation and connections that scale to laboratory demands
  • Add additional instrumentation as throughput increases in order to serve all network facilities, from community hospitals to reference laboratories
