Dec. 21, 2018—Beckman Coulter announced the U.S. release of its DxOne Workflow Manager, cloud-based middleware that aims to help low-volume laboratories standardize workflows, automate processes, and consolidate information.
Technologists can manage samples by exception using autoverification and can get an at-a-glance view of ordering information and patient demographics on one screen. Comments and flags are readily visible, alerting users to required actions, based on laboratory-defined criteria. A sample-status overview feature directs immediate focus to items in need of attention.
“We have seen a more than 27 percent improvement in turnaround time and a 23 percent reduction in labor associated with processing samples since implementing the system,” Ali Cooper, lab manager, Jefferson Hospital, Louisville, Ga., said in a statement from Beckman Coulter.
