As global healthcare changes, healthcare institutions are being tasked with handling a higher volume of patients, rising costs, and heightened performance pressures. Laboratories, in particular, are under new demands to drive even greater healthcare value with fewer and fewer resources.
To address such complex and interrelated challenges, Abbott has developed a unified next-generation family of diagnostic systems designed to help labs achieve measurably better healthcare performance across the laboratory: Alinity.
In this web-series, we’ll learn about Abbott’s multi-pronged, collaborative, and technology-enabled approach and how it shapes the all-new Alinity ci-series clinical chemistry and immunoassay systems. This first discussion with Jennifer Hollenstein, Brittany Dressler, and Jose Santiago, PhD will also share first-look, preliminary data from three Alinity ci-series familiarization sites and explore:
The outcome of productivity and reliability studies versus the newly developed Alinity clinical chemistry and immunoassay systems and legacy ARCHITECT systems
Perspectives and insights on being one of the first Alinity users from evaluation studies
