Phlerobo® Benefits

phlerobo is a phlebotomy unit managements system based on AI and Robotics; PHLEbotmy + ROBOtics = PHLEROBO

Breaking the infection chain

Helps preserve social distance. Minimizes staff-patient contact times. Patient priorities applied.

Errors and Performance

No more identification or tube errors. All stages recorded. Performance tracked. OGTT timings achieved.

AI-based Prediction

Patient waiting times predicted and given to patients at the time of check in. Human resources required predicted. Number of patients and waiting space are reduced, significantly.

Phlerobo In Wards

Blood collection time recorded exactly in hospital wards, identification and tube errors prevented. On-line / off-line modes ensure work-flow continuity.

Cell Phone

Cell phone based check in to phlebotomy unit. Complimentary access to test results by cell phone. Patient feedback through cell phone.

NESLİ® 4.0 Phlebotomy Assistant

NESLİ® 4.0 Phlebotomy Assistant is a collaborative robot designed to take load off the phlebotomist.

Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence in Laboratory Medicine

There used to be long waiting lines, it would take almost the whole day to give blood sample, now it takes only a few seconds, which is a very good thing.


Interview with a patient

Anatolian News Agency

Waiting times reduced, patient satisfaction jumped. I think this is a best practive case in application of AI to routine medical services.


Prof. Dr. Gökhan Akbulut


There were problems in our phlebotomy unit, we had access to very limited data. This user-friendly and effective system increased patient and employee satisfaction and provided data that made our phlebotomy unit manageable. This reflected itself very positively on our laboratory processes, as a laboratory professional, i am really very happy about this.

Of the past or present, tracking of patient activity and staff performance statistics are made available objectively and without personal bias.

Phlerobo® in Scientific Meetings

Phlerobo® was discussed in the following scientific meetings as a successful application.

Phlerobo® how it works ?

  • Patient scans barcode, then simply sits and waits comfortably.
  • Alternatively, patient uses cell phone to register by one touch.
  • Patient directed to a phlebotomist using audio-visual means or by cell phone.
  • Patient may choose to receive lab results by cell phone and without any message costs.
  • OGTT timing is managed by the system.
  • Patients may provide feedback using their cell phones.


A study is conducted at a large public hospital. Observations were made and recorded for three days about patient flow. Averages taken. After Phlerobo implementation, a similar day was selected randomly from the database and compared.

After Phlerobo implementation

  • ⓘ Number of phlebotomists remained the same
  • ⓘ Number of secretaries remained the same
  • ✔ Maximum number of patients waiting decreased by 78 (83%)
  • ⓘ Number of patients increased by 111
  • ✔ Maximum waiting time decreased by 48 minutes
  • ✔ Average waiting time decreased by 16 minutes (10 fold)
  • ⓘ Prioritized patient number increased by 92
  • ✔ (Prioritised) Maximum waiting time decreased by 35 minutes
  • ✔ (Prioritised) Average waiting time decreased by 16 minutes (19.4 fold)
  • ⓘ Number of patients without priority increased by 19
  • ✔ (Non-Prioritised) Maximum waiting time decreased by 52 minutes
  • ✔ (Non-Prioritised) Average waiting time decreased by 16 minutes (8.3 fold)
  • Despite an increase in number of patients, waiting times are observed to have been reduced dignificantly after Phlerobo implementation.
