New automated tube sorter increases productivity

Growing test workloads are forcing pathology laboratories to constantly improve throughput without sacrificing surety, safety or quality of service. These pressures make it difficult to continue with a manual method of sorting specimens after analysis as it is a function which is labor intensive and difficult to manage. To address these concerns Ai Scientific developed the PathFinder S Sorter.

The PathFinder S is an automated sorter for use with pre- and post-analysis applications. Specimen tubes are placed on the PathFinder S which automatically identifies and sorts the specimen tubes into storage racks or analyser racks for testing. The specimen location is then transferred to the laboratories information system for tube tracking.

The PathFinder S Sorter is designed to be easy to install, easy to learn and easy to use on a day to day basis. With simple, robust functionality the PathFinder S can help laboratories address many of the challenges associated with patient sample management including turnaround time and tracking.

As with all Ai Scientific systems, the PathFinder S will undergo vigorous testing before market release and is manufactured in accordance with ISO9001 quality certification.
