The Department of Clinical Immunology and Biochemistry, Lillebaelt Hospital, Denmark, and TIMEDICO invented and developed theTempus600®, a pneumatic tube system (PTS). This system is only 2.5 cm in diameter and sends blood tubes directly, without packing before transport. Request forms need not be enclosed, since samples are labeled with patient and barcode ID. At the end of the pipes, a robot receives and places the tubes onto a GLP transport system after the principle of “first in, first out” (FIFO), whereafter the tubes are delivered to centrifuges and analytical equipment. The whole system has decreased the total
turnaround time (ToTAT) from 2 to 3 h to<60min. We did a study where the aim was to validate the Tempus600/GLP robot system for the 89 most frequent or critical components. The topic of the talk was then the "Analytical Quality for Components in Blood Samples Transported by Pneumatic Tube System/Robot Receptor System" where the analytical quality and clinical demands were discussed.
