PVT GmbH, Germany, a developer of diagnostic laboratory systems, and BioReference Laboratories Inc, Elmwood Park, NJ, an independent regional clinical lab, plan to install PVT’s RSA Pro system at BioReference’s facility.

The system performs front-end and back-end tasks such as aliquoting, decapping, sorting, and archiving functions. The modular concept helps customers build systems for full-scale automation. The system has been used at clinical labs in Europe.

The plans call for installing five units in 2008. The RSA Pro system will be equipped to meet BRLI individual demand and sample flow. BRLI is a large independent regional laboratory in the northeast that provides diagnostic services in the New York Metropolitan area, and diagnostic services to the correctional health care industry nationwide.
