Automated pathology: less errors, more efficiency

Dear Sir or Madam,

In industrial production, many things are no longer carried out manually. Why? Because the work is monotonous, time-consuming and error-prone. This also applies to one aspect in the pathology laboratory: the sample receipt. In our current interview you will learn how to avoid mix-ups, contamination and loss of samples with the help of an automated system and how the processes can be made more efficient.

Have a pleasant week,

Elena Blume
Editorial team
