Improving Laboratory Workflow
Good results with automated printing systems integrated in LIMS
Situated in the Adige valley on the edge of the beautiful Dolomite region, the histopathology lab of the Santa Chiara Hospital, Trento, Italy, directed by Professor Paolo Dalla Palma, performs all the laboratory diagnosis for the North part of the province of Trento, including all PAP TEST screening.
With over 60,000 cases and a responsibility towards other hospitals in the province as well, it was an important requirement to integrate an information system in the pathology lab. That is why, almost 10 years ago, Prof. Dalla Palma was among the first to adopt a specific LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) for histopathology and cytodiagnostic labs, which today is widely used in many Italian hospitals.
