  1. Hi James, Thanks for your replies to this topic. Normally, our workflow would be similar to yours I think. This is an unusual circumstance at present where we are sending large volumes of tests away. I don’t believe there is a quicker way to do what we need to do, but thank you for your feedback. Much appreciated.
  2. Hello, yes it’s the transfer specimens icon. Firstly, I go to the log in page and scan barcodes of 90 samples, click log-in, which opens a box, which displays the current location.

  4. Hi Micro people, I see that there is still not much action here on the Micro forum, compared to the awesome Blood bank forum..but I am going to try my luck anyway and put my question out there! I need to export some raw MIC data from the Vitek 2 compact, to a flash drive for use on a study that the lab is participating in.

    Hi I have recently returned to micro after a 10 year stint in Blood Bank, so I know about the great BB forum. I am at a public teaching hospital in Sydney Australia , a very busy micro lab. Things have changed in 10 years, we now have PCR and a Maldi...! It would be great to get some feedback on issues in Micro and maybe help out where I can... LJE.....
