30 Jul 2013

Aligned with its commitment to move the clinical lab - the foundation of patient care - forward, Beckman Coulter, Inc. has released the newest, most advanced version of REMISOL Advance* data management system, v1.7. This software product streamlines laboratory workflow and the result management process with improved sample tracking, results archiving and the consolidation of patient test information from multiple instruments in the lab or from multiple labs in the hospital network.

REMISOL Advance v1.7 unifies data management by featuring a 166% increase in sample data processing throughput and a 122% increase in sample data storage from the previous version. REMISOL Advance helps optimize lab operations by improving results reporting turnaround times and standardizing laboratory workflow. The new version features increased device connectivity – up to 128 instruments can now be connected to a single server. The lab has the flexibility to connect to Beckman Coulter analyzers as well as selected third-party instruments.

"REMISOL Advance v1.7 offers scalability, security and standardization across the lab enterprise offering benefits such as multi-site connectivity, modules to support lab operations and now, third-party connectivity," said Erik Johnson, Beckman Coulter Diagnostics, director, Automation and Informatics Product Management. In addition, REMISOL Advance offers an optional Extended Quality Control (EQC) module, which enhances the laboratory quality control process even further, and features intuitive step-by-step creation of protocols to ensure quality results.

REMISOL Advance, in unison with EQC, provides an integrated view of the analyzers’ QC status to enable laboratories to make confident decisions on releasing patient results. This integration is helpful in the lab accreditation process – CAP Compliance and ISO15189 audits can be met and demonstrated using traceability features that allow all events related to the creation, modification or deletion of a result to be saved for later reference. Additionally, by consolidating report stations into review screens, thereby minimizing space used in the laboratory to store and archive printed patient reports, REMISOL Advance allows laboratories to meet environmentally green initiatives.
