Kolkata Based Laboratory Introduces Robotics to Test Blood Samples with Speed and Accuracy

Kolkata Based Laboratory Introduces Robotics to Test Blood Samples with Speed and Accuracy

Robotics has been finding wide usage in the healthcare industry, and now, it will be used for faster blood testing. A pathological laboratory based in Kolkata has introduced automated machines with AI that will be taking over the work of a human pathologist to make slides and process blood samples. Human interference in such tasks will soon be a thing of the past.

In addition to that, the smart lab with its AI-powered robots will be working with about 9000 samples a day and conducting over 30000 tests all the while delivering speed and accuracy in the results. Many studies have shown that almost 67% of wrong pathological reports are a result of human inefficiencies. Thus the introduction of this technology will be beneficial in achieving a zero error and accurate reports target.

Usually the samples are tested and processed by 30 to 40 pathologists and technicians. As human fatigue and sample contamination cannot be completely eradicated, the test reports will have errors. However, this laboratory called Aptio Automation will use its robotic track and human intelligence to give zero error.

As soon as a sample reaches the lab, it is put into robotic track, which peruses the bar code and then segregates it as per the requirements to be tested. After that, it breaks down the components to be tested and sends the outcome to the data management system. The entire process takes about just half an hour, and during emergencies, it is capable of providing the results in about a minute.
