New Abbott Alinity system installed at Epsom Hospital

At the end of last year, a new Abbott Alinity GLP automation system was installed in the laboratory at Epsom Hospital, replacing the existing aging equipment. The integrated system allows the fast and seamless transfer of samples between chemistry and immunoassay modules, so users can walk away without having to manually transfer samples between analysers. The new system has a combined maximum throughput of 1550 tests per hour.

The project to install the new system ran from May to October 2023 and involved many of the SWLP team based in the laboratory in Epsom.

Advantages of the new system include:

  • an interactive userface which allows staff to be trained quickly and allows them to work more efficiently and effectively
  • an integrated GLP track system which streamlines workflow and prioritises urgent work to perform urgent tests such as Troponin to ensure turnaround times are maintained
  • the most advanced pre-analytical checking solutions that can identify most common pre-analytical errors, which eliminates unnecessary delays and costs.
