Automation in the Thrombosis and Hemostasis Laboratory

Eric Salazar, Russell A. Higgins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Automation continues to advance into hemostasis and thrombosis laboratories. Integration of hemostasis testing into an existing chemistry track systems and adoption of a separate hemostasis track systems are important considerations. Unique issues must be addressed to maintain quality and efficiency when automation is introduced. Among other challenges, this chapter discusses centrifugation protocols, incorporation of specimen-check modules in the workflow, and inclusion of tests amenable to automation.
