Aerocom and Motryx Team up for Safe Blood Sample Transport

We are excited to announce that DNS member Motryx has partnered with Aerocom, a global leader in Pneumatic Tube Systems for the provision of VitalQC, a quality assurance tool to validate pneumatic tube installations for safe and effective transport of blood samples with minimal impacts on integrity and diagnostics.

Established in 2018 and headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Motryx has developed an end-to-end solution for quality control and assurance for blood sample transport. VitalQC was specifically designed as a system process diagnostic tool for blood sample transport systems such as pneumatic tube systems. It provides process-based quality indicators of transport conditions to ensure continuous, optimal PTS performance, while also mitigating the risk of inaccurate results caused by jostling in transport. VitalQC has been used by hospitals, laboratories and leading research institutes worldwide to confirm safe transport before installing new transport systems, to alert of changes in system performance, and to optimize transport processes, all to increase efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of patient results.

The efficiency of pneumatic systems has made them standard in most large hospitals worldwide; however, they must be confirmed as safe for the transport of blood samples from patient to lab. Under this new agreement, Aerocom will use Motryx’s VitalQC to monitor and continue to innovate on their >2000 hospital installations and will be the European provider of VitalQC for 10 European countries: Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Norway, Spain, Italy, France, UK and Ireland.

The agreement is effective immediately and allows for pneumatic systems to be validated and verified with little to no blood, streamlining and simplifying the process for all hospital stakeholders, including the lab.
