Whether your laboratory’s challenge is high throughput, short turnaround times or both, the cobas® 8100 automated workflow series can fulfill your laboratory’s changing needs, allowing 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 normal, hemolytic, lipemic and icteric samples
  • Tube type identification
  • Laser Liquid Level Detection

 

Workflow your way

 

Personalized 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 optimize 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 clear destination and do not circle the track, guaranteeing first-in first-out sample processing 
  • Tubes can bypass modules if processing is not required 
  • Prioritized STAT workflow

 

Flexible tube storage

 

A solution with cobas® 8100 offers 3 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 optimized add-on request processing within the same day 
  • Long-term storage

 

Maximum consolidation

 

  • Broad reagent portfolio to consolidate 98% or more of routine serum work area load
  • Designed to consolidate immuno & clinical chemistry, hematology, coagulation, selective third-party analyzers and archiving
  • cobas® 8100 fully automates the laboratory process from sample entry to archive
  • Integrated post-analytic solutions with add-on buffer module for add-on requests within one day
