Whether your laboratory’s challenge is throughput, turnaround times, or both, the cobas 8100 automated workflow series can fulfil your needs, enabling you to work faster and more efficiently.

Quality comes first

 

At an early pre-analytical stage, Roche automation solutions perform an extensive inspection of samples for maximum workflow efficiency:

  • Sample quality check via a high-resolution optical camera which enables detection of standard, haemolytic, lipaemic and icteric samples.
  • Tube type identification.
  • Laser liquid level detection.

 

Workflow your way

 

Personalised workflows enable you to choose from primary, aliquot or mixed workflow:

  • Primary sample workflow – if the focus is on cost efficiency.
  • Aliquot workflow – if the focus is on sample integrity and parallel testing.
  • Mixed workflow – to optimise the benefits of both workflows.

 

Short and predictable time to results

 

  • 3D intelligent tube transport helps laboratories to improve patient care by offering reliable results within predictably short turnaround times, even during peak workflows.
  • Multi-level and bidirectional tube transport: empty tube holders and holders with tubes run separately to avoid traffic jams. 
  • Tubes always have a defined destination and do not circle the track, guaranteeing first-in-first-out sample processing.
  • Tubes can bypass modules if processing is not required.
  • Prioritised STAT workflow.

 

Flexible tube storage

 

A solution with cobas 8100 offers three storage concepts, ensuring fast access as soon as a tube is needed. 

  • Short-term storage for an immediate re-run
  • Mid-term storage in the Add-on Buffer Module – for optimised add-on request processing within the same day
  • Long-term storage

 

Maximum consolidation

 

  • The broad reagent portfolio consolidates 98% or more of routine serum work area assays.
  • Immuno & clinical chemistry, haematology, coagulation, selective third-party analysers and archiving can all be integrated.
  • Fully automate the laboratory process from sample entry to archive.
  • Combine post-analytic solutions with the add-on buffer module for additional requests within one day.
