Tracking Patient Samples in a COVID-19 Screening Laboratory

Tracking Patient Samples in a COVID-19 Screening Laboratory

Establishing a traceable workflow of scanned patient swab tubes through to RT-PCR ready 2D-coded tube samples during a pandemic

Ziath

The Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has sadly already claimed the lives of over 70,000 people worldwide. The World Health Organization has stated that widespread testing of people for Coronavirus COVID-19 will help health services identify infected patients and more effectively focus resource to first curb, and then defeat, this virulent pathogen. Testing laboratories worldwide are challenged by the explosion in sample test numbers where they need to reliably track suspected Coronavirus COVID-19 patient swabs to 2D-coded tubes and then through to racks of 96 tubes. For this task a fast scanner from Ziath that takes and stores high quality images is the preferred solution for establishing a traceable workflow of scanned patient swab tubes through to RT-PCR ready 2D-coded tube samples.
