Dec. 3, 2018—Beckman Coulter announced the commercial availability of the DxOne Inventory Manager, its automated, cloud-based software technology that aims to simplify inventory management and enhance operational efficiencies to help ensure timely delivery of patient test results.
“For many laboratories, managing supplies involves repetitive, time-consuming, and often manual tasks. DxOne Inventory Manager eliminates the administrative aspects of supply management by automating the recording, tracking, ordering, and monitoring of consumables. This reduces workload burden, minimizes waste, and ensures stock is available when needed for uninterrupted operations,” Erik Johnson, vice president and general manager of workflow and informatics, Beckman Coulter, said in a press release.
With DxOne Inventory Manager, users can manage inventory in three steps: click a button to accept orders, deplete an item to update supply status automatically, and confirm a system-generated reorder. Users can track products by name, lot number, and location. The software also alerts users that supplies are low, and alerts are available to ensure consumables are used on a first-in, first-out basis.
