Organizing workflows to improve your clinical laboratory’s efficiency can be a major challenge for laboratory managers and directors, especially in light of qualified staff shortages and tight budgets. Clinical laboratories are tasked with producing reliable, accurate and timely results. Multiple workflow steps can increase the opportunity for errors, which could impact costs, turnaround time, and patient care. A lean workflow analysis assesses your workflow for areas to reduce wasted time, materials, and talent. Register for this webinar to learn about the lean analysis process and why it might benefit your laboratory. The webinar will also discuss real-life examples of how clinical flow cytometry workflows have improved following a lean analysis framework.
