A better way to manage the process outside the lab
QUALITY SAMPLES - THE FIRST STEP TO QUALITY RESULTS
The first step in the delivery of high quality test results is the delivery of quality, properly controlled and conditioned samples to the Lab – and this is usually of the process which is outside of lab control.
By extending best practice quality management and control to the processes outside of your lab walls, PAMS offers a unique opportunity to improve the consistency and quality of testing services; improve service delivery and enhance your lab’s competitive positioning.

ERROR FREE SAMPLE COLLECTION
PAMS implements best practice standards in combination with the rules and procedures that you define to deliver confidence that each sample collected meets your defined collection standards. Based on a mobile platform, PAMS is able to manage collections as they occur – in the field or anywhere required, and PAMS has been designed with simplicity and convenience at the forefront. PAMS ensures that every user has full knowledge of the sample collection rules and procedures that you define, guiding them through each step in the collection process, and ensuring that compliance requirements are observed and that all necessary records are created and maintained.
And while samples may be collected correctly, poor handling and transportation practices such as temperature variance and other issues can render a perfectly collected sample unusable for testing. Through sample handling rules, PAMS ensures that each sample is correctly conditioned and transported.
POSITIVE SAMPLE IDENTIFICATION
Ensuring that each sample is fully and properly identified is key to ensuring the validity and accuracy of test results. PAMS integrates positive sample identification into the sample collection process. Sample identification requirements that you define ensure that each sample is positively identified with all information required by your identification standards. PAMS supports mobile point of collection devices to enable samples to be identified immediately they are collected.
