Innovative system with ability to respond to the unique challenges of each lab
Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc. (OCD) today announced that it obtained CE Mark (Conformité Européenne) for the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer, a highly interactive, fully automated analyzer for transfusion medicine laboratories. The ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer for ORTHO Column Agglutination Technologies will be commercially available in Europe, Japan and Australia Q4 2014.
Transfusion medicine has evolved to enhance safety and establish critical efficiencies, although today’s automation solutions lack the ability to anticipate and respond to individual user needs and ever-changing conditions within the laboratory. The introduction of the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer represents an advanced system able to meet these needs through automation that is responsive, the next evolution in transfusion medicine.
“The ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer’s unique pairing of secure monitoring technologies and dynamic work flow management is a significant advance that offers labs the ability to address unpredictable demands when needed and have confidence in the results,” said Robert Yates, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics Chief Operating Officer. “With the launch of the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer and responsive automation, our goal is to greatly improve the safety of blood transfusions by reducing the lab’s reliance on manual methods.”
Designed with secure monitoring technologies for responsive safety checks and balances, the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer gives transfusion medicine professionals the ability to track every critical automated step in the immunohematology testing process. Through Ortho Clinical Diagnostics’ proprietary IntelliCheck® Technology, the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer verifies and documents diagnostic checks throughout the sampling process; while e-Connectivity provides 24/7 remote data tracking that monitors and ensures instrument performance while maximizing uptime. Laboratory personnel can also log on anytime, anywhere to collaborate on interpreting results in real time for an extra level of confidence.
In addition to multiple safety advancements, the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer also delivers dynamic workflow management, providing the adaptability to respond to unpredictable lab demand. Now lab personnel will be able to focus on prioritizing tests as they are requested, including STAT requests, making informed decisions and re-establishing a natural flow in the lab, all while automating more tests than ever before.
Building on its market leadership position, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics is reinforcing its commitment to the transfusion medicine industry with innovations such as the ORTHO VISION™ Analyzer, designed to meet the needs of labs and their patients.
