Beckman Coulter (Brea, CA, USA) displayed its recently launched DxA 5000 Fit workflow-automation system at the 2022 edition of MEDLAB Middle East held at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The clinical laboratory has gone through trial by fire in 2020, where total testing was 245% of baseline volumes, with ~55% being SARS-CoV-2 molecular tests. Despite vaccines, many industry players suggest SARS-CoV-2 testing volumes won't be impacted in the near term, and the demand for COVID-19-related testing will continue through 2021 and potentially into 2022. This means that testing-volume pressure on labs is going to continue. Labs of all sizes are facing the same challenges: shortage of laboratory technologists and technicians, historic financial pressures on hospitals and health systems, and physically and mentally exhausted laboratory professionals – a pre-pandemic problem that has since been exacerbated. However, the TLA solutions that cater to labs processing high-sample volumes are out of reach for smaller volume labs due to space requirements and infrastructure constraints.

Designed to fit into medium-sized labs that run fewer than 5,000 tests a day, the DxA 5000 Fit allows mid-sized labs to enjoy the same benefits as larger-volume labs. The DxA 5000 Fit is an automation system comprising an integrated input/output module - which can be combined with a coagulation and centrifugation - connect clinical chemistry, immunoassay and hematology instruments. The DxA 5000 Fit automation system delivers a unique combination of rapid and consistent turnaround time along with the industry’s most comprehensive pre-analytical sample quality assessment. It delivers significant efficiency gains by joining automated pre- and post-analytical sample processing with connected hematology, chemistry and immunoassay analyzers. The DxA 5000 Fit drives speed and accuracy, all while maintaining a small footprint. It is designed to automate up to 80% of the manual steps associated with processing a patient sample, allowing labs to keep their focus on what matters most: patient care.
