Abbott will focus on efficiency and workflow at AACC. At the show, they will debut OneLab, an integrated Web-based software platform that manages information flowing through a lab. OneLab is currently being used in other countries, and will be available in the U.S. in the coming months, according to the company.


Abbott’s emphasis on data management and automation can also be seen in the m2000, an system that integrates sample preparation and extraction with real-time polymerase chain reaction amplification and detection technology. In addition, Abbott will highlight five new features on its i-STAT handheld blood analyzer.
