Analyzers and Reagents

Analyzer and reagent solutions serve small to very large volume laboratories with diagnostic products and services for clinical chemistry and immunoassay. We’ve designed our analytical systems to optimize your resources and minimize the number of sample tubes processed, while providing high-quality results and valued clinical information to the physician and patient.

Get more done in less time within your laboratory’s existing floor plan by integrating clinical chemistry and immunoassay testing into a single platform to ramp up efficiency and by consolidating workstations to enhance your laboratory’s performance.

When combined into a coordinated system to meet your unique requirements, Roche Diagnostics Serum Work Area (SWA) integrated systems improve service delivery and quality while streamlining workflow, reducing stress on laboratory personnel and management and contributing to patient care excellence.

The cobas® 8000 analyzer series merges the latest Serum Work Area technology with new process innovations to meet the increasing challenges of very high workload laboratories.

Simplicity meets Excellence

Today more than ever, the importance of accurate and timely diagnostics is clearly understood. The journey from blood collection to the final test result, however, requires the highest level of dedication, expertise and diligence of the laboratory staff.

To support you in this, Roche has developed innovative integrated solutions renowned for quality and excellence.

cobas® pure integrated solutions is the newest member of the cobas® family of systems which is designed to deliver excellence, while at the same time simplifying your daily work. cobas® pure combines clinical chemistry, immunochemistry and ISE testing on a footprint of just 2 square meters, giving access to our broad menu of more than 230 parameters - including many unique high medical value value assays to labs who have to deal with limited space.

To simplify daily operation, cobas® pure comes with new features that minimize the hands on work for the operators, thus saving precious time.

To ensure simple and effective work for network organizations, cobas® pure provides fully standardized results and operation to cobas® pro integrated solutions - Roches’s latest analyzer designed for larger labs.

Because simplifying any step of the journey can help deliver fast and accurate diagnosis

Today’s laboratories are challenged with delivering high standards of services with fewer resources. They face constant pressure to lower operating costs while aspiring to grow their business in new areas. With its Serum Work Area (SWA) stand-alone analytical systems, Roche offers laboratories of every type flexible and customized solutions for their specific and often very demanding needs, without any compromise to quality and reliability.

The cobas 4000 analyzer series includes the cobas c 311 module for clinical chemistry and the cobas e 411 module for immunoassays. The combination of the two analyzers with Roche cobas IT middleware (cITm) provides true operational integration for small laboratories.

  • Enhanced laboratory efficiency by consolidating clinical chemistry into one single analyzer 
    Allowing efficient management of patient results through automatic repeat and reflex testing

    Advanced design providing consistent and reliable results 

    With intelligent clot detection
    With state-of-the-art, contact-free, ultrasonic mixing to eliminate carry-over
    With test-specific serum indices ensuring result integrity without manual validation 

    Empowered by cobas brand commonality 
    Intuitive user interface and convenient liquid ready-to-use reagents are common to all cobas canalyzers allowing minimal training and optimal productivity.

    Connectivity with cobas® Link, an internet link with an e-library

    Enabling the end users to have direct access to the latest updates of application information for reagents, calibrators and controls.

  • Accurate results the first time 
    Using patented electrochemiluminescence (ECL) technology – with one of the broadest measuring ranges in the industry. High-quality reagents, clot detection, re-run, reflex testing and carry-over protection ensure accurate results the first time.

    Quality of results 
    Using disposable tips and cups virtually eliminates the potential for carry-over

    Empowered by cobas brand commonality 
    Intuitive user interface and convenient liquid ready-to-use reagents are common to all cobas eanalyzers allowing minimal training and optimal productivity.

Designed for a dedicated task, with a throughput of up to 400 HbA1c patient results per hour, the cobas c 513 analyzer manages the workload of labs with high to very high HbA1c workload.

The cobas c 513 analyzer runs the established Roche Tina-quant® HbA1cDx Gen.3 test, which is standardized according to IFCC and transferable to DCCT/NGSP in order to ensure high quality and standardized results. With no interference from most commonly known HbA1c variants, Roche’s Tina-quant® HbA1c assay delivers accurate results for risk identification and monitoring of long-term blood glucose control.  It can also be used as an aid in the diagnosis of diabetes and identifying patients who may be at risk for developing diabetes. The assay delivers results that clinicians and patients can trust.

With over 50 years of innovation in clinical chemistry, immunodiagnostics and automated diagnostic systems, Roche’s Professional Diagnostics equips diagnostic laboratories around the world with a wide portfolio of more than 220 assays to measure hundreds of different parameters in blood, serum, or urine, while minimizing costs.

Analyzers and reagents include immunology and clinical chemistry systems for commercial labs, hospital core labs, medical centers and laboratory networks.

Since 1996 Electrochemiluminescence (ECL) technology has been Roche’s immunochemistry detection technology of choice. It was first used in the clinical laboratory on the Elecsys® 2010 analyzer with six immunoassay applications. 

Today, ECL is the most successful chemiluminescence technology with more than 75 applications and 20,000 instrument placements worldwide. No other IVD company can offer an automated detection technology that matches ECL’s unique blend of controlled reaction, precision and sensitivity, low sample volume, wide measuring range and rapid measurement.
