How to Optimize Lab Test Costs and Improve Efficiency

If you run a high-volume reference lab, you know the challenges of maintaining an adequate supply of reagents, supplies, and consumables. With hundreds of individual items to inventory and track, you may often miss the need to order one thing and over-order something else.

Shipping costs alone can build up quickly when re-orders are unplanned and uncoordinated. Then there’s the question of costs and availability. Are you ordering your lab coats and gloves from one supplier and your bottles and beakers from another? Always chasing the best price has a price of its own: time and uncertainty.

Wouldn’t it be better to work with one comprehensive source of supplies, where you could be sure of receiving high quality materials at the best price? Add to that the value of a coordinated re-ordering service that saves on shipping, and your reference lab can maintain the highest levels of quality while reducing resupply costs.

Improving the profitability of your reference lab need not come at the expense of quality materials, reliable results, and employee satisfaction. At DTPM, we have the experience to help you maintain the highest standards while optimizing and making ongoing expenses more predictable.

DTPM’s New Cost Per Sample Agreement

A predictable cost structure can reduce the risks of running a Confirmation (LC/MS)  lab, provide for ease of financial reporting, and improve the profitability of your operation.

When you work with DTPM, that’s just the start of what our new Cost-per-Sample contract can do to support your success.

What is Cost-per-Sample?

In a high-volume lab setting, one sample run may have many reportable analytes, from THC and cocaine to methamphetamine and heroin. By reducing the complex expenses of running a lab down to a cost-per-sample basis, we simplify accounting and improve accountability.

What are the benefits of Cost-per-Sample?
At DTPM, we can provide a complete turnkey solution with a CPS contract customized specifically for your lab.

Just starting out?

Your CPS contract includes all the costs of starting the lab, including analyzers, equipment, reagents, consumables, and supplies, all wrapped up into one predictable cost-per-sample. Even more, our value-added agreement includes laboratory validations and CLIA certification. We even recruit your Lab Director and train your staff.

Don’t need all of our services?

We have CPS agreements concentrating on full management of your exisiting laboratory. Our agreements can be customized to fit your unique situation. From hiring a Lab Director to developing more efficient methods, as well as providing service for your exisiting equipment;  we have whatever you need to move your business forward, saving you time and money.
