The capability to process more than 30,000 patient samples per day worldwide (and growing) distinguishes Mayo Clinic and Mayo Medical Labs as a worldwide leader in medical care, research, and education. And now, Mayo has made the move toward a consolidated Core Clinical Mass Spectrometry Testing Laboratory to support emerging business needs, budgeting and cost control measures, new space planning metrics, and test assay equipment optimization. Joined by Mayo's project manager, Andrew Reese, and operations coordinator, Matthew Barthel, Paul Hansen will chart the strategies used to collocate test development functions and consolidate four labs into one centralized location while maintaining 24/7 operations. The group will also examine lab flexibility, utility distribution, and proactive lab instrument relocation planning.
