"This year's IFCC-WorldLab gives us an excellent platform to showcase our ideas, new products, and personalized services in an exciting way."

Flexible Automation Solutions

Siemens is utilizing IFCC-WorldLab to reinforce its strength in laboratory automation. Through dedicated touch screens, visitors can learn more about ADVIA® LabCell®, ADVIA® WorkCell® and StreamLAB® automation solutions. These systems deliver a wide range of throughput and lab-configuration requirements, with expanded features such as the Refrigerated Storage Module for StreamLab with automated sample archiving – from tray tracking to full automation. Also featured in the automation area is the VersaCell™ System, offering flexible connectivity options across the Siemens analyzer portfolio, as well as consolidated sample management, refined sorting capabilities, and archiving benefits.

As a global leader in clinical laboratory automation, Siemens has also unveiled a new vision for total lab automation. Represented via a distinctive track configuration positioned centrally in the booth, this next-generation automation solution(1) provides complete flexibility by easily adapting to a laboratory's connectivity requirements.

Performance-Driven Systems and Comprehensive Assay Menu

Through the interactive touch screens, Siemens is also demonstrating its broad portfolio of clinical laboratory systems – immunoassay, chemistry, hemostasis, hematology, molecular, microbiology, diabetes, urinalysis, and blood gas – combined with an extremely comprehensive test menu.

Highlights include the new Dimension EXL® 200, complete with automated, productivity-enhancing features that promote unparalleled performance. Representatives are also there to discuss the new Siemens Vitamin D Total Assay on ADVIA Centaur® Systems(2) — a fully automated assay that measures the total 25-hydroxyvitamin D level (~100% D(2) and D(3)) to ensure patients are correctly evaluated for deficiency, sufficiency and toxicity with results in a little as 18 minutes. Additionally, Siemens is displaying the latest information on its new hemostasis instrument and assay technologies that help drive efficiencies and set a new standard in automated VWF activity determination.

Diagnostics IT

IFCC-WorldLab is also serving as an important stage for the latest in Siemens Diagnostic IT solutions, including syngo® Lab Data Manager. This new robust data management system offers advanced capabilities for auto verification of lab results, quality control, and seamless connectivity of lab instruments to the laboratory information system (LIS), automation and remote services. Visitors can also use this opportunity to learn more about the ADVIA CentraLink® Data Management System, which provides current ADVIA system customers with a central platform for consolidating lab data and automating workflow activities, ensuring faster, more accurate data delivery.

Laboratories' continuing focus on cost efficiency and quality also reinforces the need for a new category of IT—process management, which integrates process control with data management to deliver real-time information that can prompt proactive action. Now in development, Siemens syngo® Lab Process Manager intends to make this vision a reality.

Siemens Diagnostic IT experts are also showcasing information on the PRISCA 5.0 Prenatal Risk Calculation Software Shared Database(2) – a maternal screening software that delivers the industry's first Shared Database supporting inter-laboratory data comparisons and demographic factor analysis to improve the accuracy of prenatal risk assessments.
