A broad portfolio of clinical and research assays to support your molecular testing needs
The cobas z 480 analyzer is a component of the modular cobas® 4800 System, and can also exist as a standalone instrument for automated amplification and detection of clinical and research assays. The cobas z 480 analyzer offers advanced real-time PCR technology for high-quality results.
Further complement your IVD assays with your own lab developed tests (LDTs), leveraging the system’s User Defined Functionality (UDF) software.

Manual interpretation of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) data is associated with subjectivity. To further ensure reliable results, the cobas z 480 Analyzer applies an automated advanced results algorithm that interprets three key aspects of PCR data:
Growth curve shape
Growth curve height (curve amplitude)
Cycle threshold (Ct value)
