Leasing Solution 

Do you want to be in control of your costs?

Most labs are facing higher workloads, increasing turnaround times, shortage of skilled staff and cost pressures. These challenges demand increased optimisation and maximised productivity for the pathology laboratories. Our Financial Services enables your laboratory to benefit from the latest technology solutions to deal with those issues without the need for difficult to obtain high capital investment.
For a single cost per test or a monthly fee, Sakura will take care of your instrument, service agreements and your consumables in order to easily deal with the increasing workloads, shortage of skilled staff and enabling turnaround times. This fixed fee puts you in control of your lab budget as you know exactly how much will be charged. Delivery quantities can be adjusted by agreement on a quarterly basis, and additional instruments can be added throughout the contract.
The equipment within the Leasing Solution is always owned by Sakura, meaning it does not have to be registered on the laboratories asset list.

Besides the latest technology, a Leasing Solution offers you the following benefits:
✓ Cost control
✓ Asset Management
✓ Flexibility
✓ Single invoice
✓ Stock management
✓ Platinum Service level

Service Agreements

Do you want to benefit from maximised uptime?

In order to guarantee the daily routine in your laboratory, the continuous availability and reliable operations of your instruments are crucial.

With a Platinum, Gold or Silver Service Agreement, we can meet your needs and budget. A fixed periodic fee will give you more control of your budget, as costs are predictable. While we take care of your instruments, you can focus on your patients.

Do you want to improve the process of your laboratory?

Most laboratories are facing higher workloads, increasing turnaround times, shortage of skilled staff and cost pressures. These challenges demand increased optimisation and maximised productivity for the laboratories.

The Workflow Consultancy enables your laboratory to gain more insight into the current process to identify bottlenecks and to consult on improvements.

The aim of the consultancy service is to improve the process of the histopathology laboratory by applying Lean principles. This allows you to do more with the same capacity/resources while improving the quality of work and results.

The Workflow Consultancy consists of a one-day workflow observation. This provides the lab with information about the processes, such as utilisation rates of the workstations and current state of the material flow.

The Workflow Consultancy is managed and executed by Lean Six Sigma consultants, specialised in histopathology laboratories. The consultant will analyse the observations and the collected data, to identify bottlenecks and non-value adding steps in the processes. He will provide recommendations in order to maximise the productivity within your laboratory and how to best make use of staff and equipment, which allows staff to spend more time on other critical activities. The recommendations are practical and pragmatic, so you and your team can immediately start working on the quick wins.

You will benefit from:

  • Increased quality
  • Maximised productivity
  • Optimise use of equipment
  • Efficient use of resources

Express Delivery

Do you want to prevent downtime and order urgently needed consumables to have them delivered the next day?

A surplus in work or unexpected shortage can increase your need for consumables. As you want to guarantee maximum uptime, stock management is very important.

The Express Delivery service gives you the opportunity to order urgently needed products* in small quantities throughout the day and have them delivered the next working day. If you order by 5 p.m. CET, you will receive a next working day door-to-door delivery for a fixed fee.

This service guarantees more uptime, as there is no waiting time for the consumables. Besides that, you do not have to wait until you have a minimum order amount. In case of a shortage we make sure you receive the consumables the next working day.

If you want to reduce your stock holdings and prefer a just in time delivery method, you can use Express Delivery. This will free up space required for large stock holdings to be used for the other important activities within the lab.

You will benefit from:

  • Less downtime
  • Reduction of stock
  • Track & trace

*Conditions and exceptions

  • Only consumables and accessories
  • 20 kg measured by weight, hand carried
  • Hazardous goods have a longer delivery time
