PathWest to automate microbiology labs for FSH and QEII
PathWest Laboratory Medicine WA is on the market for total laboratory automation systems for its Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) and Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre (QEII) microbiology laboratories.
The new systems are expected to be compatible with PathWest's new laboratory information system (LIS) through a bi-directional interface that will enable patient and sample data to be checked and data to be analysed in real time.
PathWest is replacing its current Ultra LIS with a new system from US firm SCC Soft Computer, which won a competitive $42 million tender in 2016. The Soft LIS is expected to be fully rolled out by the end of the year.
