NGNY has recently installed an AQUA8000 device in the Laboratory of Dr. Berghold in Graz (Austria). This system has been configured and customized to fit the lab needs, in order to have an efficient flow of samples and a complete traceability at any time. When samples arrive to the lab they are loaded in the input areas of the system which selectively decaps and sorts the sample tubes in the analyzers racks (mainly Atellica Solution racks, Beckman AU racks and Hematology racks). Only for those patients with special test requirements some aliquots are generated in the first pass. From the output area, operators take out the analyzers racks and process them. Once finished, the samples are handed back to the input area in AQUA, where the system queries the status of each sample again. Depending on the individual progress of the samples and the pending requirements, they are either archived (in different long or short term storage racks), or more aliquots are done, or they are re-sorted to an analyzer rack again. When all the tasks are done, every sample tube is archived in the cold storage. The location information is available at any time, both from the AQUALink software and from the LIS interface. Thanks to the collaboration of the LIS provider LABENE.at, the laboratory staff and NGNY engineers, the installation process has been successful and the goals have been achieved.
MEDICA is the biggest international fair dedicated to the medical industry. It’s annually organized in Düsseldorf (Germany), in this case from November 18 to 21, and is aimed at an expert public in the sector. More than 5.000 exhibitors from all over the world will present their newest products and technical innovations in the field of medicine. Conferences, forums and the fair of suppliers COMPAMED, completes this event. NGNY takes this opportunity to discover technological developments and meet some of its suppliers.
NGNY has installed an AQUA8000 with the optional modules decapper (DKP) and recapper (RKP), in the USI AXA Laboratory in Rome. The C8000 module increase the sample input rate, the DKP device decaps the primary tubes and the RKP device recaps the aliquots, avoiding the manipulation of the samples and minimizing the risks in biosecurity. The AQUA System automates the pre-analytic activities that were completely manual until now. This allows its users to focus on activities with greater added value.
From May 19 to 23, NGNY will participate in the EuroMedlab 2019 European congress which, on this occasion, will be held at the CCIB – Centre Convencions Internacional de Barcelona. Visit NGNY DEVICES, S.L. at booth 264! For more information: http://www.euromedlab2019barcelona.org/2019/home
NGNY has recently installed an AQUA7000 device in the laboratory of the Hospital Ramón y Cajal in Madrid. This device has three optional dispositives: decapper (DKP), recapper (RKP) and aliquoting microplate system. The DKP and RKP modules speeds up all the laboratory workflows and minimizes biohazard risks. The microplate aliquoting system allows the creation of a serum bank, where the micro-samples are frozen for long storage.
In recent months, NGNY has launched its first devices in Italy, Portugal and France. These equipments will allow the optimization of pre and post analytical workflows in laboratories. It stands out that the device in Padova (Italy) is the first that NGNY installs in the laboratory of a veterinary centre.
NGNY Devices has been the winner of the “PIMEC Joves” award for the best “young” business initiative in Catalonia, in the award ceremony of the 31st edition of “Premis Pimes” organized by the PIMEC management and which took place on the 10th of October.
NGNY has installed the first of two AQUA8000 devices that will be installed in the laboratories of the Do Meixoeiro Hospital in Vigo. This device has two optional dispositives: decapper (DKP) and recapper (RKP). The C8000 module and the DKP module, that decaps the primary tubes, increases the samples’ entry speed, and also speeds up all the laboratory works. This is especially important in this hospital, because this laboratory has one of the longest automated chains in the country. The RKP dispositive caps again the aliquots, avoiding the manipulation of samples and minimizing risks in biosecurity.
NGNY has recently installed an AQUA7000 device in the laboratory of the Hospital Vega Baja in Orihuela, province of Alicante. The AQUA7000 provides the automation of jobs that until now were totally manual, which allows its users to focus on tasks of greater added value. Some of the improvements are: The precise aliquoter, which aliquots the sample tubes, minimizing manual pipetting errors. The sorter, which allows to automatically archive the processed and validated samples in real time, not at the end of the day as they were doing until now. After the installation and configuration of the equipment and following the protocol of launch of the equipment, NGNY has made a training course for users, for the correct use and basic maintenance of the AQUA7000.
The world forum for medicine MEDICA opens its doors on November 13 in Düsseldorf, Germany. During four days will be shown the latest developments in the different sectors present in this fair: electromedicine and medical technology, laboratory technology, diagnostics, physiotherapy/ orthopaedic technology, commodities and consumer goods, information and communication technology, medical services and editorial products. The MEDICA fair is held in parallel with the world’s largest fair for suppliers of medicine, the COMPAMED fair.
