Specimen Journey

DID YOU EVER WONDER WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR LABORATORY SAMPLES ARE TAKEN?

Proper lab sample management is critical to quality and reliability of Diagnostic Results

The sample journey video provides a deeper look into the best practices and quality control used to ensure specimen integrity and quality to improve patient outcomes.  Effective lab sample management is important to maintain the integrity, traceability and accuracy of diagnositic results. Diagnostic errors arising from a compromised specimen can lead to delays in treatment, misdiagnosis, incorrect treatments, unnecessary testing and in the worst-case scenarios, harm to the patient.
