BD FACSLink Software

As clinical laboratories strive for improved productivity, the need to interface laboratory instruments to a Laboratory Information System (LIS) has become increasingly important. The BD FACSLink™ LIS interface provides an easy-to-configure solution for clinical laboratories.


Connect to a Laboratory Information System

Developed in collaboration with Data Innovations™, a leading middleware provider experienced in clinical applications, this LIS interface solution allows the direct transfer of information between BD clinical instrument software and an LIS, reducing errors commonly caused by manual transcriptions.
