Clinpath Pathology's CEO Dr Fergus Whitehead invites you to tour the Mile End Laboratory.

Mileend lab

As you may have heard, our new lab has opened.

It is the first lab in the world to introduce an Alinity triple module chemistry platform to a GLP track. Similar to a Scaletrix model, when samples enter the GLP track system they are transported via cars to pre-analytical devices, which includes an Australian first - a bulk loader, a centrifuge, de-capper and aliquoters routed onto state of the art analysers. In reality, it looks like a big train set - and we'd be happy to show you through.

A/Prof William Tam from the Australian Medical Association of South Australia said he was "mesmerised by the automated sorting of specimens using innovative #scalextric technology."

Pathology is the engine room of healthcare and central to medical detection, prevention, treatment and management.

This new pathology technology has been a significant investment made by Sonic Healthcare into our state, and to highlight the importance, the Official Opening Ceremony was attended by His Excellency, The Governor of South Australia.

Fergus says, "We have spent months getting this right and we are excited for the future. We encourage you to book a tour and witness modern Pathology in action."

During the 30 minute tours we explain the journey of the test tube from blood collection through to lab processing and archiving.
