Lab managers to learn about automatic specimen delivery system at booth 220

This is truly a break-through approach to tube system delivery, where the recipient retrieves the payload of a carrier without the manual handling steps of opening, closing and resending empties, - TransVac Solutions President, Harry Pliskin

TransVac Solutions, a provider of innovative pneumatic tube systems for hospitals, will introduce the only automatic unloading station for the laboratory available in the United States at the 2013 CLMA KnowledgeLab in Orlando, FL., April 8-9.

TransVac will profile its pneumatic tube solutions at booth #220. The company’s solution incorporates technology from Sumetzberger GMBH, one of the world’s largest pneumatic tube system providers.

Typically, lab staff is required to handle tube system carriers upon arrival at the station. But the patented automatic unloading station delivers lab samples, not carriers. Once contents are delivered, the carrier closes inside the station and is automatically sent to its ‘home’ station without staff intervention.

“This is truly a break-through approach to tube system delivery, where the recipient retrieves the payload of a carrier without the manual handling steps of opening, closing and resending empties,” says TransVac Solutions President Harry Pliskin. “Our delivery solution is quiet, saves busy lab personnel time, reduces cross-contamination potential by eliminating carrier handling, and prevents carrier ‘hoarding,’ a common problem with tube systems.”

TransVac tube systems also provide automatic carrier tracking and system management, assuring that every station has the right kind and number of carriers at all times. TransVac’s Pass-Thru design limits the amount of tubing throughout the system and provides greater design flexibility with space-saving stations and components.
