In contrast to small scientific laboratories (designed for individual teams of researchers), the needs of large, centralized laboratories are decidedly different.

While successful experimentation and discovery might be the primary objective in a research laboratory, in a large centralized laboratory environment, there are three watchwords that measure operational success: efficiency, accuracy, and safety.

Efficiency means the ability to process a large throughput of test samples.

Accuracy means the test results are correct, consistently repeatable, and as error-free as humanly possible.

Safety means that personnel are not exposed in any way to unhealthy conditions or suffer workplace accidents.

What’s the best way to obtain these high-performance objectives at your facility?

From our experience in working hands-on with hundreds of laboratory clients, ranging from Quest Diagnostics, Antech Diagnostics, and Ariosa Diagnostics, as well as hospital systems like Baylor Scott & White, we think the following five guidelines are the basis of achieving success:

1. Create order out of chaos at your clinical hospital or medical laboratory with Integrated Lab Services from Formaspace.
High-throughput clinical laboratories, by their nature, tend to be very capital intensive.

Laboratory testing companies, healthcare organizations, and government agencies are investing millions of dollars in equipment to automate the processing of test samples.

Compared test equipment found in small-scale labs, individual pieces of laboratory equipment in centralized clinical or medical laboratories tends to see much more use throughout the day; in some cases, laboratory workers will use the equipment in multiple shifts around the clock to keep up with demand.

As a result, the laboratory layout and furniture design need to have provisions to facilitate both regular and unexpected maintenance outages. To maintain productivity, maintenance technicians and engineers need to be able to access equipment, either by quickly removing it and replacing it with a spare unit or by performing maintenance service in situ – without disrupting or shutting down other parts of the laboratory.

Here is where things can get complicated.
