With the Dako Omnis solution, reagents can be added at any time, (without waiting for landing zones).
Dako Omnis gives labs the option of running IHC and ISH slides overnight, with an unequaled high capacity of 60 slides (including up to 15 ISH slides). This compensates for peaks and ensures that they can deliver slides on time, regardless of fluctuations in volume.
Unequaled overnight capacity of 60 slides compensate for large fluctuations in daily workload, enabling good service performance and a fast answer to oncologist and patient. Slides volume is based on data from Lincoln County Hospital, Lincoln, UK. Average 97 slides pr day. Fluctuations from 40 – 150 slides per day.
How to utilize the 60 slide overnight capacity
Utilizing the overnight capacity is easy:
If slides are finished before the start of the work day they will be stored at either wet or dry location. It is also possible to delay the slide staining so they finish when the work day begins.
Information to hand, where and when you need it, including information provided by your LIS:
LAN connection allows your lab full transparency of all Dako Omnis information. And your staff can follow the slide flow from their workstations with minimum effort, conducive to a calmer working environment and a smoother workflow
The built in LAN connection allows you to monitor and control information from anywhere, and enables management of Dako Omnis information exactly where and when you need it. Send slide requests, track the slides, order reagents, get information from your LIS, and much more.
Updates on time-sensitive patient cases are increasingly needed in modern oncology.This calls for a patient case workflow where labs can continuously load and off-load slides per patient case, without waiting for the next batch to run and without spending time on batching and re-sorting the slides.
In addition, slide volumes fluctuate – somtimes from day to day and hour to hour – which in peak periods calls for utilizing their full throughput capacity, both in terms of automation and manpower, by deploying batch runs.
Dako Omnis enables labs to apply a LEAN design where the workflow matches its patient case management:
Full throughput capacity can be reached by running batches on Dako Omnis, including over-night runs, which can help eliminate the need for working overtime during in peak periods.
