throughput

(throo′pŭt″)
1. In hospital management, the sum of the services provided by a health care institution per unit of time. It includes the number of patients treated, admitted, and discharged; the total number of procedures performed; and the quantity of laboratory or radiological services rendered. It is a measure of institutional volume or capacity and a determinant of productivity.
2. In the laboratory, the analysis, processing, or testing of multiple samples. Techniques that foster the rapid or simultaneous processing of multiple samples are called high-throughput.

Asked about the impact of high-throughput techniques in general in the chemicals industry, he says, "To date, the real high-throughput techniques for polymer development have been limited to those of most need, where multiple parameters need to be studied, for example, in polyolefin catalyst and material development." This definition of "high throughput," although much different from how the pharmaceutical industry would define the word, still embodies the same basic concepts.
