cobas p 512 p 612 pre-analytical systems

Adapting to today’s needs. Flexible for tomorrow’s demand

Evolution of cobas p 512/612 pre-analytical systems – new and innovative standalone solutions for high throughput laboratories. cobas p 612 differs from cobas p 512 due to the aliquot functionality.

These standalone automation solutions are validated for cross-contamination compliance and therefore may be used to automate and simplify processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.

cobas p 612 performs comprehensive inspection of samples at an early stage, maximizing workflow efficiency.

  • Sample quality check via a high resolution optical camera which enables detection of normal, hemolytic, lipemic and icteric samples. Samples with inadequate quality for analytical processing will not continue their path
  • Automated spin status detection: CCM detects whether blood samples have been centrifuged or not. Spin status enables a greater workflow efficiency, preventing unspun samples from being tested. Measurements are made via laser through 3 barcode labels
  • Tube type identification allows you to cross check the tube type and its cap color and barcode information to detect possible errors
  • Laser Liquid Level Detection allow you to detect samples volume in ml through 3 barcode labels. Samples that don’t have an open window are not missed (prioritized process of samples/aliquots based on available volume)


Sample quality checks

  • Tube type identification
  • Sample quality check
  • Spin status detection: detects if blood samples have been already centrifuged or not
  • Early detection and sorting of tubes with errors and issues
