The importance of traceability

Behind every tube there is a patient which deserves correct reports and answers, in the shortest time possible.

Literature states that around 60% of analytical errors happen before tubes arrive in the laboratory*. Our ProTubeTM solution extends the benefits of traceability at the collection point, thanks to positive identification of patient/tube/label and solves these typical scenarios:

  • patient misidentifications,
  • mislabeled samples,
  • the wrong tube for required tests,
  • incorrect collection time and missing tubes.
