At a recent Sample Transport Symposium event, hosted by Sarstedt, Dr Michael Cornes presented on the variety of options available for sample transportation and their influence on of speed and quality of result.

Laboratory supplier Sarstedt hosted a two-day educational Transport Symposium at its Leicester base during March. An audience of NHS managers and biomedical scientists were present for a variety of presentations as well as a hands-on preview of the Tempus600 transport system.

Key presentations included Clinical Director Pathology at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Dr Michael Cornes looking at existing methods of sample transport, and Professor of Clinical Biochemistry at Denmark’s Lillebaelt Hospital, Ivan Brandslund, who spoke on how the Tempus system – along with some other innovative developments – have helped his laboratory reduce total turnaround time (TAT).

The first day’s highlight was undoubtably a session on creating a culture of high performance, delivered by Manuel Knight, a US Army veteran who is now one of Europe’s most sought-after speakers in the field of performance and motivation.
