  • Proven software solution prepares labs for future potential value-adding integration
  • Lab directors can react even faster with high-quality, reliable results to clinicians and patients
  • Lab staff gain more insights from greater integration across locations and multiple clinical disciplines


Basel, 11 April 2019 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced the release of cobas® infinity 3.0, its proven global lab software solution for diagnostic laboratories to help laboratory leaders maintain high operational performance, quality, integration and security within their labs across multiple locations.

“Our cobas® infinity lab software solution will help labs – large and small - transform their operations for higher efficiencies, quality control and improve information-sharing and delivery of care to patients,” said Christian Hebich, Head of Solution Integration and Services, Roche Diagnostics. “These new features from cobas® infinity lab software solutions will help healthcare leaders integrate more, faster and maintain high quality while manageing the changing needs of clinicians and patients.”

One new feature further improves the intelligent routing of samples in high volume testing labs by dynamically adapting to changing lab conditions, such as priority testing, to reduce time to results. New improved quality control features ensure that the highest quality results are reported consistently, while new monitoring features secure high performance and stability of analysers and reagents 24/7 without additional costs. Finally, the addition of more work areas for different clinical laboratory disciplines (such as molecular, haematology, coagulation, etc.) enable lab staff to focus on what matters most to them. Additional features include an easy-to-use interface that allows lab technicians to customize and personalize their lab environment set-up across multiple sites.

The cobas® infinity lab software management solution helps laboratories integrate a wide range of key processes along the patient journey from ordering diagnostic tests to actual test results. It does this while automating the entire sample flow and bringing meaningful insights for informed decision making about patient care and treatment options. The well-established software solution is already installed in large and small laboratories in over 60 countries across the globe.  Roche Diagnostics is a world market leader in providing integrated lab solutions to healthcare organisations.
