We have invented an automated camera system that photographs the entire exterior of sample tubes and uses OCR to identify potential patient name mislabels. All 1 009 830 images obtained by the system were inspected by employees.
We believe our invention of an automated camera system that can detect patient name mislabels will be significant for any high-volume laboratory.
In 3 Q-Probe studies conducted by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), (5) the reported rates of mislabeled samples were 0.39/1000 in 120 institutions (4), 0.92/1000 in 147 clinical laboratories (7), and 1.12% in 122 clinical laboratories for blood bank samples (8).
