Connect to a Laboratory Information System (LIS)

The BD FACS™ Workflow Manager middleware solution allows bi-directional communication of test and patient data between BD Flow Cytometers (BD FACSLyric™, BD FACSVia™), BD Sample Preparation System (BD FACSDuet™), analysis workstations and Hospital and/or Laboratory Information System (HIS/LIS).


As laboratories strive for improved productivity, the need to interface laboratory instruments to a laboratory information system (LIS) has become increasingly important. By providing an automated reporting workflow and data transfer between the Laboratory Information System (LIS) or Hospital Information System (HIS) and the BD instrumentation, the BD FACS™ Workflow Manager Middleware:


  • Reduces manual tasks and workload
  • Minimizes manual intervention in patient data handling
  • Optimizes efficiency and productivity in clinical flow cytometry laboratories and patient data management 
  • Provides security, encryption and data privacy controls in instruments and/or software where patient data is processed and stored, in line with GDPR demands for protection of personal data and privacy of all European citizens
