A big academical hospital in the Netherlands is looking for a large
volume(scale) sample transport system, that transport automatically
samples to all kinds of analysers and preparation machines. From the
preparation machines the samples will be transported to one or more
analysers. This transporting will be done horizontally, in at liest one
laboratory. The samples will be analysed on the right things on the
right analysers. The data will be neatly administrated in a computer.
The analysers are from different brands. In case it is possible to
transport samples to more than one lab, like laboratory specialised in
different field(analytical clinical chemistry lab, viralogical- and
bacterial lab, etc.) we like to know? we are interested in vertical
sample transport as well, because are labs are situated on four floors
above each other .

Does such a horizontal sample transport system already exist? If yes,
could you give us some information on such a system?

Does a combination of  an integrated vertical/horizontal sample
transport system exist. If yes, could you give us some information on
such a system?

In by both questions we are interested the following Information:
? Brands/addresses?
? Volume of samples that can be transported on the system?
? Processing speed?
? Accuracy ?
? Reliability?
? Frequency of maintenance?
? Price of system?
? Software it’s running
? Etc.?

If not such machines exist, are there company’s that want to make such a
system? Don’t forget there is a market for such machines. Because
analyses in a modern hospital lab hardly differentiate from hospital to
