Aspiration tubes that are not completely drawn up can lead to malfunctions in automated analyzers. Faster and more accurately than experienced laboratory personnel, ASP SortPro “sees” during registration and sorting if the aspiration was incompletely performed and sorts out faulty samples before costly process interruptions occur.
With its optical detector, SortPro can detect insufficient aspiration of sample material. This information can be reported to the LIS and/or the affected sample sorted into a separate target bin.
SortPro detects much more than barcodes and cap colors. Error-free and every second, it can also check the quality of the specimen delivered. All the visible features that your laboratory personnel use to identify sample tubes and assign them for further processing can also be recognized by SortPro and used as sorting criteria. With the recognition of tube type, volume and manufacturer, centrifugation status or the proper engagement of the stamps of aspiration blood samples (e.g. Sarstedt), for the first time a sample sorter can also automate central functions in quality management and relieve technical personnel of even more routine tasks than it has already done.
