Quality comes first

Roche pre-analytical systems automate and streamline workflows according to specific sample types, allowing for efficient, standardized, and simplified PCR setup.

Connecting the cobas® prime Pre-Analytical System to a cobas® 6800 or cobas® 8800 System creates a Molecular Work Area capable of automating and consolidating greater than 90%* of routine molecular testing. This fully automated molecular workflow allows for more productive use of valuable technician time and eliminates time-consuming manual sample handling, reducing the risk of cross contamination, human error, and repetitive motion injuries.
