Geneva University Hospital (HUG), BATLab, Geneva, Switzerland
The Geneva University Hospital is the largest hospital in Switzerland with 2'200 beds and over 10'000 employees. By the middle of 2015 a new laboratory building, the BATLab, was built at the same location (Cluse-Roseraie). 32 analysis laboratories were planned, in which approximately five million analyzes are carried out annually.
The loading and unloading stations serve to distribute the transport containers (600x400x300 mm, max. 25 kg) in a vertical direction between the receiving centres for samples to the laboratories in the different floors. The trays are sent via barcode to all floors.
