Behind the Automation: Fürst Medical Laboratory

Workflow consulting, data-driven design, comprehensive transition planning, and strong project management transform a large private reference lab in Scandinavia.

We needed to do something that gave us capacity, flexibility, and lower costs because that’s crucial to survive. High-speed automation will transform healthcare in Norway in the future. Havard Selby Ebbestad, Chief Executive Officer, Furst Medisinsk Laboratorium

Calling the installation of an 120-meter automation track with 31 multidisciplinary analyzers and 38 pre- and post-analytical modules risky is an understatement, especially when half of all primary-care tests in Norway come to your lab every day. For Fürst Medical Laboratory , realizing a return on investment required a systematic evaluation of operating processes and long-term goals during the design phase of the project. However, bringing that design to life wouldn’t have been possible without a partner to manage the implementation plan, minimize disruptions, and guide the lab and its staff through a significant period of change.
