Critical and sometimes life-threatening decisions are made based on lab results. To ensure the fastest possible turnaround time, blood and specimens must reach the lab quickly and safely, and staff should be prepared to efficiently handle the workflow. Automation helps improve laboratory operational efficiency and reduce waiting time for important information.
Swisslog’s autonomous mobile robots and pneumatic tube systems automate material and specimen transport within the laboratory environment and between the lab and other areas of the hospital. Designed to reduce waste, standardize processes and improve workflow, our automation solutions help labs focus on value-added activities that enable the hospital to deliver a higher standard of care.
By incorporating automation as a lean process improvement into labs, hospitals can increase regulatory compliance, ensure timely information reporting and achieve a better experience for patients and staff.
Pneumatic Tube Systems
Delivering prompt, customized care is critical to improving the patient experience and ultimately enabling better patient outcomes. Swisslog’s family of pneumatic tube systems helps hospitals meet patient needs by efficiently transporting drugs, documents and specimens to and from nurses’ stations, labs, inpatient and outpatient pharmacies, blood banks and the ED.
RoboCourier® Autonomous Mobile Robot
Dramatically reduce manual transport tasks within the hospital by letting the RoboCourier do the walking for you. The RoboCourier Autonomous Mobile Robot transports lab specimens, medications and hospital supplies, enabling staff to remain focused on patient-related tasks. With more time spent on value-added tasks, overall turnaround times and throughput increase while the cost of labor decreases.
