In total, the surveyed labs have an installed base of 4,750 instruments.The winners of the ServiceTrakTM Awards are recognized by users as the leading companies in 7 categories of clinical analyzers across 3 functions—system performance, customer satisfaction and service. The workhorses of clinical laboratories, clinical analyzers perform thousands of tests each day that are necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. As Scott Lamb, senior project manager at IMV, told IBO, “While there are many other types of diagnostic equipment in the health care environment, these 7 areas are available in almost every hospital/clinic so the installed base is very large.” The ServiceTrakTM clinical instrument awards are the result of phone interviews conducted earlier this year with 2,075 hospital laboratories. In total, the surveyed labs have an installed base of 4,750 instruments. Award winners are selected based on satisfaction ratings calculated on a 10-point scale. The biggest awards winner this year is Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, which is recognized in 9 categories. bioMérieux, Inc. is the winner in 5 categories. Earlier this year, the IMV PET Imaging ServiceTrakTM Awards were announced. Reports detailing survey results in depth for all major vendors in each category of clinical instrument and PET imaging systems are published annually by IMV.
