Technology Checklist for a New Laboratory
By Danyel H. Tacker, PhD, DABCC, FAACC

When considering the technical range of equipment needed for a new laboratory, a solid approach includes delineating operational silos and linking them to available test menus on specific analyzers. This should then be combined with a broad-based vision of how technical operations will coincide with leadership, personnel, and workflow operations. This process should be vetted through an implementation team (ie, the staff members directly involved in setting up instruments, analyzers, and workstations in the new lab) prior to ordering any new technology or automation.
