Diagnostica Stago, introduces the STA Workcell Max, a transformative specimen processing platform designed to meet the rigorous requirements of efficient hemostasis testing. With a loading capacity of 300 specimens at a time, STA Workcell Max automatically loads and balances centrifuge buckets, and prepares platelet poor plasma by centrifuging specimens using hemostasis-specific criteria. Intelligent rack preparation enables optimized routing to the designated STA R Max analyzer. Specimens are held inside of up to four Stago STA R Max systems until results are validated, thus ensuring rapid availability in the case of additional or reflex testing. Racks are automatically unloaded from the instrument and held in the output module. By automating front-end specimen processing, rack preparation and specimen routing, the STA Workcell Max enables allocation of skilled laboratory technologists for other more complex, value-added tasks.
The STA Coag Expert data management platform powering the STA Workcell Max automation line, transforms lab QC and patient results into robust, traceable, actionable clinical insights. STA Coag Expert delivers full traceability, from operator activity to reagent and consumable lot identification for each data point. Also included, are connectivity capabilities to auto-upload QC results into a real-time peer comparison program, MyExpertQC. An upcoming suite of digital services, including remote monitoring and proactive instrument alerts, will further enhance the value of STA Coag Expert by reducing TAT and increasing system efficiency.
