and European facilities will now offer nucleic acid extraction and verification services in addition to sample aliquoting
and PBMC (Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells) processing.
Near total elimination of aliquoting
has also been achieved, as specimen sorting for additional testing has become a backend process after completion of the majority of testing.
Moreover, we knew that a potential automation solution for our laboratory would likely not require centrifugation or aliquoting
, although TLA systems being installed in high-volume laboratories in the mid-1990s usually had those features.
We assessed productivity in terms of real-time specimen processing, evaluating potential labor savings and error rates as applied to aliquoting
, daughter tube volume, and labeling errors.
Thermo Electron's laboratory automation products offer flexible and cost- effective solutions for automating labor-intensive pre-analytical tasks such as centrifugation, decapping, sorting and aliquoting
would be necessary for long-term storage if additional freeze-thaw cycles diminished the quality of the cell lysates for PCR.
Regardless of the accuracy of a lab's system of aliquoting
specimens, when this procedure is done manually, 100% reliability is impossible.
The simulations were limited to the processes of specimen accessioning, order entry, aliquoting
and distribution to the core laboratory areas of Chemistry and Hematology.
Serum samples, prepared in advance by adding 5 and 40 [micro]g/L olanzapine to a pooled serum and then aliquoting
in Eppendorf tubes and storing at -20[degrees]C, were used as quality-control samples.
Centrifugation and aliquoting
of clotted blood specimens
The initial values in the nonacidified samples were already increased compared with the acidified samples because of the time elapsed during pool preparation and aliquoting
