OPEN: Connect the systems you need to create an automated, streamlined workflow

  • Connect only the pre- and post-analytical modules and analytical systems you need when you need them
  • Industry leading middleware provides discipline consolidation, faster results, and timely, actionable performance metrics
  • Add systems from other disciplines to create a fully automated lab, including menu expansion

FLEXIBLE: Configure hardware and software to align with how your lab actually works

  • Configurable and compact track fits your space and workflow for true modular automation
  • Faster implementation and easier training with pre written routing and auto verification rules open to user modifications
  • Dry Slide technology is the foundation of all VITROS® Chemistry and Integrated Systems. Together with VITROS® MicroTip and VITROS® MicroWell technologies, they deliver up to 90% of your chemistry volumes without dedicated water, plumbing, or drains
  • New Cold Storage unit integrates seamlessly with TCAutomationTM providing enhanced operational capabilities*

SCALABLE: Grow at your own pace without having to completely redesign your lab

  • Enables stepwise investment, so you can expand and adapt as test volume grows, lab demands change, or new technologies become available without expensive and time extensive laboratory construction
  • Best-in-class technology meets the demands of today and empowers you to grow progressively in the future
  • Minimizes laboratory disruption and ensures continuity in laboratory services throughout and during expansion

*TCAutomationTM Cold Storage is manufactured by Thermo Fisher Scientific and distributed by Ortho Clinical Diagnostics.

Stay Ahead of the Curve With VITROS® Automation Solutions

VITROS® Automation Solutions is designed to work with your all of your VITROS® Systems.

With VITROS® Automation Solutions, you can:

  • Free up skilled labor for value tasks that truly require operator intervention. Automation Solutions, boost productivity by processing more samples during all shifts without adding staff, balance workloads , eliminate workstation bottlenecks, and reduce exposure to biohazards. In addition, results-based routing handles re-runs, dilutions and reflex testing without operator intervention, while dry technologies helps you to auto-verify results with our rules set and reduce the need for unplanned maintenance.
  • Provide better service to physicians and patients and improve turnaround times with a more efficient workflow. VITROS® Automation Solutions helps you streamline sample handling by eliminating operator interventions, reduce time spent searching for samples with automated Sample Tracking, optimize workflow with results-based routing, eliminate barcode reading errors, and increase first-pass yields.
  • Reduce errors with a single control point for multiple analyzers. Autoverification combined with VITROS® Intellicheck® technology delivers worry-free results, while VITROS® MicroSensor technology bolsters specimen integrity and fewer manual interventions reduce the potential for errors.
  • Lower total cost by improving staff utilization while reducing errors and manual interventions. And expand functionality when your lab is ready, starting with a simple configuration (workcell) and adding modules or more analyzer interfaces as you need them with minimal disruption to laboratory enabled by flexible tracks.
