cobas® Liat® System


We put a lab in a tube...

The cobas® Liat® System is a fast, easy-to-use, compact PCR system designed for on-demand testing in point-of-care settings such as physician clinics, pharmacies, and hospital and satellite laboratories. The system includes the cobas® Liat® Analyzer–a small, benchtop analyzer safeguarded by an extensive array of instrument controls, plus a growing portfolio of assays, including cobas® Influenza A/B, cobas® Influenza A/B and RSV, cobas® Strep A and cobas® Cdiff. Assays for other infectious diseases are in development.

  • Small: The Analyzer is smaller than a shoebox and conveniently designed for space-challenged testing locations.
  • Simple: The cobas® Liat® System is fully-automated with touchscreen guided operation, requiring minimal training and hands-on time. 
  • Swift: Sample to results in 20 minutes or less. Single assay runs allow time-sensitive testing and reporting.
  • Secure: Sealed-tube design eliminates operator contact with reagents or other chemicals. Closed system with multiple controls reduce the potential for human error.
  • Connected: The cobas® Liat® System offers bi-directional connectivity to integrate all point-of-care testing devices with a central data management system.

The cobas® Liat® System is commercially available in select markets.
