Preventable adverse patient outcomes or injury present a serious public health concern and an enormous threat to patient safety.1 Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States, equating to more than 250,000 deaths per year.2
GenMark, like Roche, is committed to the continued improvement of patient care. The unique solutions on the ePlex® System helps to improve patient safety across the pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical phases of the diagnostic process, of which up to 70% of clinicians base their decisions.3 The ePlex® System is designed to automate typically manual procedures that can potentially lead to human errors, such as accessioning of patient samples, and the manual transcription of patient results into a Laboratory Information System (LIS).
The ePlex® System is designed to be both efficient and safe to ensure that every clinician and their patient have the best opportunity of receiving a fast, reliable and actionable result. The ability to report patient results with confidence helps improve the overall efficiency of your lab, leading to potentially institution-wide benefits to those running the ePlex® System.
