Inova awards haematology analyser contract to Sysmex America

Sysmex America : 14 December, 2007  (New Product)
Inova Health System has purchased a number of haematology analysers, automation systems, reagents and middleware from Sysmex America.
Inova Health System is Northern Virginia's leading not-for-profit health care provider, serving more than one million people annually in the metropolitan Washington, DC area in the USA.

Inova will replace its existing equipment with Sysmex haematology instruments to process approximately 5,000 laboratory test orders per day across ten facilities. The Sysmex solution includes the full range of Sysmex haematology analysers, five automation systems and the CellaVision DM96 digital morphology system. All systems and equipment will connect to a single enterprise-wide middleware system, Sysmex's MOLIS WAM, which will interface to Inova's two laboratory information systems (LISs) to provide the laboratory enterprise wide data management including delta checking and auto-validation.

The Sysmex solution will help Inova achieve its strategic business objectives including lowering review rates, improving turnaround time and enhancing staff education. After carefully considering several vendors, Inova's decision to select Sysmex was based on technology, reagent standardisation, service, training and overall cost effectiveness.

'We are impressed with Sysmex's technology in streamlining the entire haematology lab process with walk away capability, including the automated handling of body fluids. We believe Sysmex is ahead of the marketplace in technology and they are clearly listening and proactively responding to their customers' needs,' said Dr Lucy Nam, medical director, Clinical Laboratory Services, Inova Fairfax Hospital and Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children.

'Sysmex shares Inova's enthusiasm for best-in-class technology, quality service and education. We believe that focusing on these requirements will help us form a strong, mutually beneficial long term business partnership with Inova Health System,' said John Kershaw, president for Sysmex America.
