To improve individual patient care in the face of persistent chronic disorders and infectious disease, healthcare providers continue to expand their business operations and patient offerings. Extremely beneficial to the overall healthcare system is the uptick in usage for flexible automated solutions within the clinical diagnostic lab. Ideal for pre- and post-analytic specimen sequencing, robotic systems are especially helpful, streamlining workflows while reducing errors.

With an anticipated market growth of a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 7.8% by 20301, more facilities than ever are embracing intelligent automation and robotic systems to improve high-throughput areas of the clinical lab. Modular automation systems with mix-and-match capabilities for greater versatility are highly effective, helping organizations successfuly segue into lab automation2.

“Providing the utmost efficiency, flexibility, quality and reliability, these cutting-edge solutions perform task-specific processes that fulfill diverse requirements,” states Craig Rubenstein, Life Science Technology Leader for Yaskawa Motoman. “Multiple connectivity options that facilitate smooth data exchange with LIS/LIMS systems for specimen processing and traceability also add to their appeal.” Well-suited for aliquoting, barcode reading, decapping, sorting, recapping (or sealing) and rack loading, multiple areas within laboratory settings are realizing transformative benefits.

To learn how Yaskawa systems for laboratory testing and processing can ensure your clinical lab operations are always moving, plan to attend the ADLM (Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine) Clinical Lab Expo. Formerly known as AACC, ADLM 2024 will be held at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois (July 31-August 1). Featuring over 900 exhibitors, 200 new products and services, and 250 educational opportunities, this year’s theme encourages attendees to make a “Bold Move,” inspiring individuals to connect with industry leaders and implement breakthrough technologies.

At the show, plan to visit the Yaskawa Booth #1239, where you will see the following specimen processing systems:

AutoSorter 1200S/Sealer – ideal for fulfilling stringent demands for high throughput commercial labs and reference laboratories, the AutoSorter 1200 can process up to 1,200 specimens per hour for rack-based pre-analytic sorting and post-analytic foil sealing, sorting/archiving. Capable of operating as a standalone instrument or as one in a series of processing stations in a conveyorized line, this versatile workcell is customizable to meet specific requirements. A high-performance Yaskawa robot optimizes system uptime and reliability.

Aliquoter – producing up to 340 labeled daughter tubes per hour (each with volume as instructed by the LIS/LIMS), the extremely robust aliquoter is well-suited for detecting clots and QNS. Multiple parent tube configurations are accepted.

Register today to come discuss your specific projects with our automation experts. Whether your requirements revolve around sorting, sealing, aliquoting or something else, our team is dedicated to your organization’s success.

In the meantime, watch our recent webinar, “Deploying Automation with Clinical Labs,” hosted by Craig Rubenstein. You'll discover proven methods for automating your pre- and post-analytic specimen sequencing.
