What is the C-SIC Kit?
The C-SIC Kit (Covid Sample Information Collection Kit) is designed specifically for swift, easy, and accurate sample information management during field sample collection for COVID-19 testing. The C-SIC Kit is used in conjunction with a specimen collection kit to ensure correct information handling all the way to the lab (specimen collection kit not included). It is not a sample collection kit, but, rather, a tool to ensure correct data handling and association with the sample. Studies show up to 68% of results errors are pre-analytical. C-SIC Kit employs simple, reliable hardware and state-of-the-art software to minimize or eliminate data and mix-up errors during sample collection and transport.
Not only does the C-SIC Kit allow you to enter patient and sample data (registration) into a secure, HIPAA-compliant cloud database, but it also can scan drivers licenses and other ID directly, to further eliminate error. It then prints out a barcoded sample label for each sample to attach in real-time at the time of collection. Existing patients’ information pre-populates the registration form so that only the new sample need be entered.
When samples reach the lab, their labels are simply scanned, and the order is called up and accessioned quickly and easily - and accurately!
