Building the business case for the introduction of APAS Independence

Abstract: Introduction of automation into laboratories is a multi-faceted consideration requiring several stakeholders to inform decisions. Building the business case is sometimes complex and at the core of the business case is a return-on-investment (ROI) proposition to justify expenditure, whether it be re-utilisation of staff on other and current tasks, or availing time for additional revenue-generating tasks. When considering the implementation of APAS Independence across multiple labs globally, a ROI of 4 years or less was demonstrated in 96% of studies, with 88% of studies delivering a ROI within 2-4 years, and 46% of studies demonstrating a ROI within 3 years. All of the US sites included in this study delivered a ROI of less than 3.5 years. Notwithstanding the demonstrated clinical performance of the APAS Independence, these data demonstrate the adoption of APAS Independence provides financial benefit to most laboratories.
