MEDIC equipped with Siemens’ most advanced Automation

On September 26th, Siemens’ next generation Aptio™ Automation platform inaugurates its operation at Medic Center in Ho Chi Minh City, which is the first installation in the ASEAN region.  Aptio™ Automation offers Medic Lab a unified solution to address increasing workloads in the face of decreasing resources, as well as enables Vietnamese patients to have access to a better healthcare service.


“We chose Aptio™ Automation because it not only handles increasing daily workloads in the laboratory but also enables us to improve the turnaround time. Further, the system footprint is small which helps to save the operation costs.” said Dr. Nguyen Thanh Tong, Vice Director of MEDIC.


“Aptio™ Automation represents Siemens’ latest innovation and vision for how we can help laboratories by combining workflow excellence with clinical excellence. It allows customers to have access to the newest assays while managing the laboratory effectively and intelligently.” said Etienne Szivo, Executive Vice President, Siemens Healthcare, ASEAN- South Korea- Pacific. 


“MEDIC is the first healthcare center in Vietnam to apply Siemens Workcell in 2005 and it is now also the first one to install Siemens Aptio™ Automation in Vietnam. Top innovative companies like Siemens will definitely need pioneers like MEDIC so that our mission to improve human’s health can be fulfilled“, added Siemens Vietnam CEO Dr. Pham Thai Lai.
