CUT YOUR

LAB TAT BY

20+ MINUTES

SPIN TIME

7+ MINUTES SAVED

Reduce your spin time by 70% or more. Drucker Diagnostics’ DASH line of STAT centrifuges processes samples in 3 minutes with record delivery to chemistry. But that’s not all. Watch our overview video to learn more.

DRUCKER DASH APPROACH

13+ MINUTES SAVED

The Drucker DASH approach to centrifugation introduces a few simple changes to improve your turnaround time (TAT) and transform your lab into an agile system. The approach uses a centrifuge array to eliminate queuing, which allows for immediate centrifuging. Small centrifuges in an array can be loaded quickly without batching and without waiting for a previous cycle to finish.

Reduce your spin time by 70% or more. The DASH line of STAT centrifuges processes samples in 3 minutes with record delivery to chemistry.

Enhanced lab efficiency combined with shorter spin time will increase throughput by more than 100% and get results back to the doctors and nurses who help with the people who matter the most – your patients.

BOOST EFFICIENCY

The Drucker DASH approach makes some small tweaks to lab processes and uses a centrifuge array to eliminate queuing which allows for immediate centrifuging. Small centrifuges in an array can be loaded quickly without batching or waiting for a previous cycle to finish.

So what exactly is the Drucker Dash Approach?

Put simply, it’s an approach you can take to boost efficiency in your lab without causing major disruptions to current workflow. With a few tweaks you’ll be getting lab results returned to doctors in record time.

The Drucker DASH begins by looking at ways to reduce time spent waiting for test results even before tubes reach the lab. Labeling stat samples in phlebotomy as soon as they’re taking can make your lab more efficient.  When used in conjunction with colored bags for STAT samples, your lab can quickly identify samples which need to be processed immediately.

Reducing Turnaround Time

Once tubes make it to the lab, the Drucker DASH approach uses an array of small centrifuges to eliminate time spent transporting specimens to batch centrifuges and queueing. Using an array allows you to load them quickly without transporting, batching or waiting for a previous cycle to finish. When you place an array of Apex centrifuges next to your existing station, your staff can spin plasma samples the moment they arrive. The centrifuge will notify your staff when it is complete, so that specimens no longer wait in a centrifuge after spinning. Samples can be sent for analysis in just a few minutes. Your wait time will disappear before your eyes.

Reducing Spin Time

You’ve now made strides to make your lab process more efficient but how do you reduce the centrifuge spin time? We have the solution. Advancements in centrifugation technology including Drucker’s patented horizontal rotor, can help reduce your lab’s spin time for chemistry and coag tubes by 70% or more.   

Enhanced lab efficiency, combined with shorter spin times, may increase throughput by more than 100%, eliminating up to 13 minutes waiting for tubes to be processed. That gets results back to the doctors and nurses who help the people who matter most, your patients.
