Tube Characterization System – an integrated system of 3 cameras that reads the barcodes on sample containers when the robotic arm places the sample container in a carrier. These cameras confirm the readings that were taken by the drawer vision system. These cameras also check if the tube is a capillary tube holder, provide an accurate A measurement of tube height and diameter, and read the tube barcode B. Cal-QC storage area – maintained at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. A maximum of 60 tubes can be stored at a time. The system uses cal-QC tube covers, which are cap-like devices that fit over each position of the cal-QC storage area and help prevent evaporation of the samples MICROSCAN This image shows the cal-QC tube covers inside the cal-QC storage area 4 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Atellica Magline® Transport Components A. Atellica Magline Transport – transports samples between the Sample Hander and the analyzers B. Carriers – each carrier holds only one sample tube at a time. There are 2 positions in each carrier to allow the robotic arm to place a new tube in a carrier and at the same time pick up the tube that has completed aspiration A B 0011001241 [ EP108152-57A259 5 EP10914552A-211 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Sample Racks The system supports the follow types of sample racks: Type of Rack Sizes Available Label Color Routine 15 and 55 positions Black STAT 15 positions Pink Special 15 and 55 positions Blue Special STAT 15 positions Pink/Blue STAT 15 position rack Routine 55 position rack 1. 1 1234 Special 55 position rack Special STAT 15 position rack 6 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Sample Containers The system supports the following types of sample containers: • Primary tubes • Cal-QC tubes • Pour-off tubes • Tube-top Sample cups • Capillary collection containers • False-bottom tubes NOTE: Non-barcoded sample containers are not supported. NOTE: If the system does not include a Decapper, capped sample containers are not supported. The operator must remove caps from sample containers before loading the containers in racks. NOTE: Refer to the Atellica Solution Online Help for a complete list of the supported sample containers. 7 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Sample Processing Sequence for Patient Samples and for Calibrator / QC Samples not stored in the Cal-QC Storage Area 1. The operator loads tubes into a drawer 2. As the drawer is closed, the drawer vision system scans the tubes 3. The robotic arm transports the sample tube to a carrier on the Atellica Magline® Transport 4. The tube characterization system scans the tube 5. The Atellica Magline Transport delivers the tube to the appropriate analyzer for sample aspiration 6. When all aspiration is complete, the Atellica Magline Transport returns the tube to the Sample Handler 7. The robotic arm returns the sample tube to the drawer NOTE: Only calibrator and QC samples that are in an appropriate container (only 12x75mm round bottom sample containers can be used; sample cups cannot be used in the cal-QC storage area) and that have been designated for onboard storage will be stored in the cal-QC storage area. All other calibrator and QC samples will follow the sample processing sequence on this slide. 8 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Sample Processing Sequence for Calibrator / QC Samples that are stored in the Cal-QC Storage Area 1. The operator loads tubes into a drawer 2. As the drawer is closed, the drawer vision system scans the tubes 3. The robotic arm transports the sample tube to a carrier on the Atellica Magline® Transport 4. The tube characterization system scans the tube If there is currently an order for the tube, and the calibrator or QC sample contains a single assay: 1. The Atellica Magline Transport transports the tube to the appropriate analyzer for sample aspiration 2. When all aspiration is complete, the Atellica Magline Transport transports the tube to the cal-QC storage area If there is currently an order for the tube, and the calibrator or QC sample contains multiple assays: 1. The Atellica Magline Transport transports the tube to the appropriate analyzer for sample aspiration 2. The analyzer aspirates all the replicates for 1 assay for each calibrator or QC level 3. The Atellica Magline Transport transports the tube to the cal-QC storage area 4. The Atellica Magline Transport transports the tube to the appropriate analyzer 5. The analyzer aspirates all replicates for the second assay of each calibrator or QC level 6. The Atellica Magline Transport returns the tube to the cal-QC storage area 7. The system repeats this process until the analyzer completes aspirating all of the assays associated with the calibrator or QC materials 9 *This procedure is continued on the next slide Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 Atellica® Sample Handler SIEMENS Healthineers Hardware Overview Sample Processing Sequence for Calibrator / QC Samples that are stored in the Cal-QC Storage Area (continued) If there is not currently an order for the tube: 1. The tube will travel once around the Atellica Magline Transport to allow time for the system to receive orders after the barcode is read 2. When the tube returns to the Sample Handler, the robotic arm transports the sample tube to the cal-QC storage area 5. When a test is ordered for the material, the robotic arm will retrieve the tube from the cal/QC storage area and transport it to a carrier on the Atellica Magline Transport for aspiration by an analyzer. When the onboard stability expires for the material, the robotic arm can transport the tube to a drawer where the operator can remove it from the system NOTE: When tubes are placed in the cal-QC storage area, the robotic arm will place a cal-QC tube cover over the tube to help prevent evaporation of the sample. NOTE: Only calibrator and QC samples that are in an appropriate container (only 12x75mm round bottom sample containers can be used; sample cups cannot be used in the cal-QC storage area) and that have been designated for onboard storage will be stored in the cal-QC storage area. All other calibrator and QC samples will follow the sample processing sequence on this slide. 10 Effective Date: 3/31/2019 | HOOD05162002998037 Unrestricted © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2019 SIEMENS Healthineers Please note that the learning material is for training purposes only!
