Measuring system for quickly determining the quality of blood samples

Detection of hemolytic and lipemic blood samples

ASP is developing a pre-analytical system for the detection of quality parameters in blood samples to increase efficiency and reduce costs in clinical laboratories.

The system should perform this pre-analytical measurement at high speed, with a throughput of 2,000 blood samples per hour. The sample material should be measured directly in the sample tube if possible without preparation.

The aim of the WTSH funding project is to develop a preanalytical system for the detection of hemolytic and lipemic blood samples to increase efficiency and reduce costs in clinical laboratories.

The system makes it possible to provide feedback on the suitability of blood for certain analytical methods before carrying out complex diagnostic procedures. In this way, cost-intensive analysis can be avoided if they do not produce a usable measurement result with the available blood quality.

In addition, the system enables the documentation of sample quality and thus improves the overall process for generating results for sample material sent to the laboratory.

The system should perform this pre-analytical measurement at high speed, with a throughput of 2,000 blood samples per hour. The sample material should be measured directly in the sample tube if possible without preparation. A suitable measuring method must be developed for this. Approaches for this method exist in spectroscopic and imaging processes. A suitable mechanism is also being developed to present samples to the sensor at the required speed and in an optimal position.
