The clinical laboratory is a critical component of the diagnostic process and immediately impacts patient’s health and safety. The importance of designing labs that optimize testing capacities, speed, and accuracy cannot be understated.

Thousands of lab test types are available, with hundreds commonly ordered. As genetic testing continues to increase exponentially, the complexity of lab requirements requires a robust specialization in Lean planning, integration, diagnostic devices and equipment, and human performance. Fortunately, BSA’s design experience and deep expertise can keep pace with this accelerated advancement. The following are samples of emerging trends in clinical laboratory design.

Achieving higher volumes, shortened turnaround time, and improved accuracy
