A significant bottle-neck for clinical mass spectrometry laboratories is the data review component. Auto-data review processes decrease these bottlenecks by providing major improvements in quality and patient safety while simultaneously decreasing time to review the mass spectrometry data.

In this webinar, Dr. Alec Saitman will provide insight into an auto-data review program developed by Providence Regional Laboratories. This program has unique advantage of providing dynamic rule flags against patient samples using calibrator averages of important data elements. By incorporating clinical mass spectrometry data review into middleware, we bridge the gap between mass spectrometry and automated instrumentation platforms.

What You Will Learn


  • How to identify the current need for automated data review of mass spectrometry results.

  • To describe how rule flags are designed to mimic human-based manual data review processes.

  • To demonstrate how automated data review workflows can improve standardization efforts while simultaneously reducing overall time to review mass spectrometry results.
