Automation Enhances the Lab's Value

See how Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada uses advanced robotics to reduce wait times and improve patient care.

Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) is a medical oncology and hematology group in Las Vegas. Using the VersaCell® System advanced robotics solution for automated sample management, they have tripled the number of blood tests performed annually while also reducing overhead.

Fast, predictable turnaround times at CCCN empower physicians to make treatment decisions without asking patients to return for test results another day.

In this video, you’ll hear from:

  • Nicholas J. Vogelzang, MD, Medical Oncologist, Executive Medical Director, U.S. Oncology Research, CCCN
  • Edwin C. Kingsley, MD, Medical Oncologist, Site Medical Director, CCCN
  • Michael Lanata, MT(ASCP), Laboratory Manager, CCCN
  • Renee Fejeran, MT(ASCP), Medical Technologist, CCCN


“When patients come to see their cancer doctor, they have expectations that they will be receiving their chemotherapy the day they see their doctor. We do all we can to meet those expectations, and having a laboratory that runs smoothly, that runs efficiently, that is operated in a financially responsible manner, is a tremendous asset,” Dr. Kingsley says in the video.
