Thomas Jefferson University Hospital adopts new automated laboratory
Date:9/19/2011

PHILADELPHIA Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (TJUH) is advancing its laboratory testing services with new state-of-the-art equipment from Roche Diagnostics designed to help labs increase their testing capacity and deliver reliable results with greater efficiency. The high-volume, automated system allows patient blood samples to pass through processing, analysis, storage and inventory in a completely cybernated process.

The new equipment will enable the laboratory to handle the increased demand for diagnostic tests while expediting the analytic process. The capacity of individual analyzers to process blood samples will increase from 90 samples per hour to 300 per hour with the new technology.

TJUH initially expects to process approximately 3,000 to 4,000 specimens daily and provide about two to three million individual test results per year. The system will handle the vast majority of the most common laboratory tests run by the hospital.

"These state-of-the-art laboratory automation solutions are perfectly aligned with Jefferson's overall vision to constantly improve healthcare with high-quality patient care and safety," said James M. Maratea, Administrative Director for Laboratory Medicine at TJUH. "What's more, the high volumes of testing we do here make it essential that we have the highest-capacity and most efficient laboratory equipment available."

The Roche system combines three components: the Roche MODULAR PRE-ANALYTICS sample handling system, the cobas 6000 analyzer series, which includes the cobas c 501 and cobas e 601 modular chemistry and immunochemistry analyzers, and the cobas p 701 post-analytical sample storage and retrieval unit..

This is only the second installation of the Roche cobas p 701 sample storage and retrieval unit in North America, and the first in this region to adopt an automated laboratory that includes a Roche storage-and-retrieval
