We support you to empower patient focus

Our complete range of services supports you in handling your daily challenges to help complete the daily workload, establish shorter turnaround times and improve your lab’s efficiency and quality.

Our Leasing Solution supports your laboratory in benefitting from the latest technology solutions, enabling you to deal with day-to-day challenges without high-capital investments that might be difficult to obtain. For a single cost per test or a monthly fee, Sakura takes care of your instrument, service agreements and your consumables. This fixed fee puts you in control of your lab budget. Then know exactly how much you will be charged.

In order to guarantee a smooth daily operation in your lab, it’s crucial that your instruments are reliably operational and continuously available. With a Platinum, Gold or Silver Service Agreement, we can meet your needs and budget. A fixed periodic fee gives you more control of your budget, as costs are then predictable. We take care of your instruments; you focus on your patients.

Well-trained people work more efficiently and perform better. That’s why we offer on-site customer training on your instruments to optimise results. We ensure that your staff acquire in-depth knowledge of the Sakura instruments and consumables, empowering them to use the instruments to their fullest potential. Additionally, trainees receive certification after the training, in order to meet the ISO 15189 standards.
