Laboratory Developed Tests (LDTs) are a vital part of the clinical laboratory’s repertoire. Several LDTs have become so widely ordered that their incorporation with IVD testing could yield substantial time, cost and performance advantages. The cobas omni Utility Channel for use on the cobas® 6800 and cobas® 8800 Systems enables you to consolidate routine LDTs with IVD tests on a single platform resulting in gains in operational efficiency for your laboratory.
The cobas omni Utility Channel simplifies the LDT workflow while delivering advanced automation and the ability to consolidate onto a single platform. Now, you can realize further testing efficiency without sacrificing test quality with the fully automated cobas omni Utility Channel for use on the cobas® 6800 and cobas® 8800 Systems.
Other LDT methods require multiple user interactions. The cobas omni Utility Channel only requires preparation of the reagent cassette and loading it onto the cobas® 6800 and cobas® 8800 Systems like an IVD reagent cassette.
