It is all about the quality of medical decisions

Smart4Diagnostics closes the preanalytical data gap between blood collection and lab analysis and enables a new quality standard for diagnostic decision making.

We change preanalytics from trust-based into an evidence-based system

Our digital human sample fingerprint is a quantum leap forward for patient safety, preanalytical quality and lab turnaround time. We create a trustworthy basis for the personalized medicine of the future.

Data-Driven Preanalytics

More than 70% of all medical decisions are based on diagnostic results. Most of these results are generated with the human blood sample. While the medical lab is highly controlled and fully digitized and automized, preanalytics didn’t see much change in the last 40 years. It remains a black box – for labs, medical doctors and patients.

The unique S4DX-System creates a data-driven preanalytical ecosystem. From sample ordering until sample arrival S4DX collects all relevant data-points to completely monitor blood sample workflow. Thus, we can reduce preanalytical errors in real-time and improve the preanalytical workflow and medical quality at the same time.

Our Solution fits to all human blood sample containers, all methods of transport and all information management systems. We do not change preanalytical steps – we improve them.

  • Evidence in a second

    Use our stationary system, the "CheckIn-Device", or our mobile version, the "Satellite" . Both provide full order verifcation, all relevant timestamps, handling guidance and can be combined with the SmartTube™. The CheckIn Device additionally detects the tube type, checks filling volume and centrifugation status.

  • Real-time user feedback

    If we detect sample errors (e.g. barcode readability, filling volume, order mismatch, or missing samples), we provide real-time feedback to the phlebotomist to solve problems and avoid patient revisits.

  • Phlebotomist guidance

    Our system provides guidance to the phlebotomist exactly at the right timepoint - with the blood sample in his/her hand. We advise on individual sample handling after collection (e.g. mixing, centrifugation, cooling) to assure the quality of sensitive samples.

  • Adaptive transport monitoring

    Our SmartTube™ adapts to your sample-transport system (bags, boxes and pneumatic tube systems). You don‘t change your workflow but get all relevant data (e.g. temp., time, shock) automatically.

  • Automated data integration

    With our convenient interfaces you can integrate all data into your LIS to optimize your sample workflow, to trace samples seamlessly and optimize in real-time.

  • Data-analytics

    Our data analytics transforms preanalytical information into a powerful tool for lab optimization. We tell you how many samples are scheduled to arrive and you already know every detail about your expected samples in advance.

At the collection site, S4DX detects if tubes are labelled correct, if the individual tube fits to the order, if the order is complete (tubes missing or additional tubes collected), automatically sets the time for collection and measures the filling volume and detects centrifugation status
