COPAN WASP® Lands at Prestigious Boston Medical Center
Date:10/3/2011

MURRIETA, Calif., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Medical Center (BMC) in Boston Massachusetts, USA, recently took delivery of their long-awaited WASP® (Walk Away Specimen Processor), which includes a Gram SlidePrep™ Module.  The acquisition was concomitant with the inauguration of BMC's new clinical laboratory facilities, and BMC's ongoing efforts to optimize patient care by consolidating resources and improving workflow within the lab.

The installation marks the 85th WASP® placement worldwide, and it will help BMC meet similar demands faced by other Microbiology labs around the world.  "In these challenging financial times when every laboratory is looking to maintain quality patient care while consolidating and controlling resources it is prudent to use every person and every tool more efficiently.  We can do this by creating better lines of productivity and by making services more cost effective. In particular, having a platform like WASP® paves the way for this kind of approach," said Dr. Nancy S. Miller, M.D., Medical Director of Clinical Microbiology & Molecular Diagnostics at BMC.

Miller, Orr and their team at BMC looked at several automated platforms before ultimately choosing WASP®.  "Apart from robust design we were concerned about how flexible and modula
