Improved Sample Quality and Decreased Turnaround Time in a Large University Hospital Webinar
Online
Added:

Description: In 2018, Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM) embarked on a LEAN journey to improve the global process quality and turnaround times in the core chemistry lab. The project included the optimization of existing lab layout and processes along with switching from serum to clean, gel-free plasma for chemistry and immunochemistry testing. The validation of BarricorTM tubes for chemistry testing included validation of an alternate centrifugation scheme and result comparison with serum SSTTM tubes. The presentation will outline implementation of BarricorTM tubes and learnings from the LEAN process.
Start date: Upon registration
Completion: Up to 52 weeks
