An emerging trend in new diagnostic systems is the integration of clinical chemistry and immunodiagnostic assays into a single system with the capacity to run menus of 75-100 different assays. When calibrating such a system, the total number of calibrators required can be in excess of 200-300 fluids. This TMP has provided Ortho Clinical Diagnostics with information about the current best practices in the targeted market segment. Quantitative data was compiled and analyzed to provide a comparison/assessment of process steps, system complexity and overall user time, and requirements for market leading automated diagnostic test systems that target the hospital and reference lab market segment.
