Statement of Work: This request is for Brand Name or Equal to iSED ESR Analyzer, manufactured by ALCOR Scientific. We are currently using traditional manual Westergren Method for Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR). This method is tedious and time consuming, and we are in need of upgrading our methodology. In order to keep best patient care in timely manner, we need to upgrade from traditional Westergren Manual Method to new advance automatic ESR system. This will allow for faster, easier testing analysis of our samples, while also eliminating use of Manual Method. This will free up significant time that is spent by our technicians that perform these tests, while also greatly reducing manual processing error by several magnitudes. We need an ESR analyzer that can be loaded, saves time, and streamlines our lab s workflow. All of this will help with eliminating operator variability and increasing safety for lab personnel, reducing exposure to bio hazardous material, all while still maintaining a small footprint. The Philadelphia VA needs a system that can track lot numbers, open and close container expiration dates, and number of test remaining. The VA needs it to have a barcode reader built in (positive sample ID) where we can scan all controls and patients via barcodes, and access the test results from the LIS. A direct, bidirectional LIS interface means that test requests can automatically be accessed by the system without needing PC systems, and allows for results to automatically be sent to the LIS for review, meaning faster, better care for our patients. We also avoid any costly errors relating to manual data transcription. Additionally, the VA needs it to pierce the blood tubes, mix blood samples, and we want a system that will only run two levels of whole blood control as part of daily QC.
