Outline

The Zero-Contact Medical Station achieves zero-contact swabbing and pipetting tasks for lab technicians. After swabbing, the automated robot will then pipette the collected specimen and prepare an essay for PCR diagnosis. These procedures can be done in 25 minutes. The robotic systems are integrated with Roche's RT-PCR device allowing automatic and efficient processes.

Evaluation

For PCR tests, which are based on nasal cavity tests, this medical robot station is unique in that it not only automates the test after medical staff take the specimen but also uses a robot to automate specimen collection. Automating a large percentage of the test process not only shortens the time it takes to determine the results but also increases safety for medical staff and people being tested because there is no need for them to come into contact with each other. The application of advanced, neurosurgery navigation robot technology is an innovative approach, which was highly rated.
