One of the largest COVID-19 laboratories in Europe is now also on the hunt for Omicron:

Laboratory software from Clinisys | MIPS enables record number of PCR tests

Over 23 million samples have already been evaluated in the Vienna COVID-19 laboratory of Lifebrain Covid Labor GmbH in the past 12 months, and the numbers are increasing by several hundred thousand every day. The extensive test program in Austria is supported by state-of-the-art laboratory software from Clinisys | MIPS.

Exactly 12 months ago, on December 15, 2020, a new COVID-19 test laboratory was opened in Vienna. On the location of the former Otto Wagner Hospital, Lifebrain built one of the largest and most modern test laboratories in Austria within a few weeks; converting and equipping two old pavilions with state-of-the-art technology.

« Alles gurgelt! » – a test offensive with exemplary character

With the roll-out of the Vienna test program « Alles gurgelt! », the number of COVID-19 tests carried out there dramatically increased. The unique and successful campaign of the City of Vienna offers all citizens the opportunity to get PCR tests for free. The Lifebrain laboratory can process and analyse up to 500,000 samples every day with the results being available in less than 18 hours on average.

On the hunt for Omicron

The complete workflow from sampling and testing to the rapid delivery of the results and the « Green Pass » certificates is being processed with the help of powerful laboratory software from CliniSys | MIPS. The GLIMS laboratory information system and the CyberLab order communication software have been developed in close cooperation with the experts from Clinisys | MIPS and implemented by the Vienna system vendor Assista – in record time. In addition to continuous support, a new function to support pooling tests, essential for the massive expansion of capacity, has been developed and integrated into the system.
