Pinnacle Clinical Chemistry Module

The PINNACLE Clinical Chemistry module offers a complete range of functions to meet the needs of a modern clinical laboratory.

Running either stand-alone or as part of a complete integrated Pathology system, the PINNACLE system represents the latest development in laboratory information systems.

The PINNACLE application software is highly flexible and was designed by laboratory staff, specifically for the Chemistry environment, with many user-defined formats and parameters.

Patient Database

All PINNACLE modules, including Clinical Chemistry, are linked to common patient demographic information using the power and flexibility of the ORACLE Relational Database Management System.

Request Entry

Request entry screen layouts are customised for each laboratory, and can also be implemented on a centralised basis. They are designed for maximum ease of use and for enhanced productivity, including the capture of discipline-specific data, such as that needed for Dynamic Function Tests.

Result Entry
The majority of Chemistry data is captured from automated equipment and a number of facilities are also provided for manual result entry, including numeric, text, calculated and coded entries.


User-definable worksheets provide a flexible and efficient mechanism for the management of both result and QC data, including the application of Westgard rules for data validation.

Analyser Interfaces

PINNACLE Clinical Chemistry supports a wide range of automated equipment through the use of PC-based software, including both uni- and bi-directional analysers.

Reference Ranges

Multiple user-defined reference ranges are available by patient category, including age and sex.


On-line, semi-automatic and fully automatic processing is supported, with easy access to patient history during authorisation.

Results Reporting

Single-shot, interim and cumulative reports are available, customised to your individual requirements, and including facilities such as multiple report destinations and electronic transmission of results.


Accessible within the Clinical Chemistry laboratory, across other disciplines or to authorised external users, the enquiry facilities provide fast and secure access to patient result data.

Comprehensive Reporting and Management Information

In addition to the standard reports including workload statistics, data can easily be analysed and reported upon using a range of industry-standard SQL tools including the powerful, data analysis and reporting tools Business Objects and Oracle Discoverer.
