DMF Systems Sample Tracking and Archiving Results Solution (STARS) is alleviating problems associated with Sample Archiving and Tracking in medical laboratories and is being used successfully in medical facilities in Dublin and Cork.
Using barcode technology DMF Systems STARS enables you to track, transmit and archive samples between all the laboratories in Ireland. It also supports the attainment of ISO 15189 accreditation.
STARS tracks sample shipments, validating and informing you when your samples are received, then confirming results. It can generate reports and all activities are electronically audited and confirmed, thus constituting much greater efficiency. With STARS you can trace specimens in your lab, archive samples to offsite cryogenic storage, uniquely identify individual samples, trays, boxes or fridges using barcode technology and match shipped samples to requests from your lab system.
