Patient Centred Processing is a new approach from Menarini to ensure that all patient samples are handled safely and quickly, to increase laboratory throughput and provide an accurate and fast turnaround time of results to patients.
There is a ‘national ambition in England to achieve earlier diagnosis’ as indicated in a report of the Independent Cancer Taskforce. The recommendation is that 95% of patients referred for testing by a GP should receive their results within 4 weeks by 2020.
Tissue processing accounts for up to a third of the total time in the histology workflow. This is partly due to practices being employed that are based around technology that is more than a century old. It is important that these practices evolve to meet the changing needs of a modern, patient-centred health service.
Menarini are able to achieve this using innovative technology:
- Rapid decalcification using the Bonestation Decalcification system
- Rapid & conventional tissue processing using the LOGOS Tissue Processor
- On-board embedding using the SYNERGY system with the LOGOS
Utilising patient centred processing techniques will enable your laboratory to offer a complete and competitive service. It will also provide clinicians and patients alike an outstanding experience giving them what they need, when they need it.
