The cobas® 8800 System is designed to meet the ever-changing needs of your laboratory and your organization. The broad on-demand assay menu delivers reliable results across a wide range of applications, making test consolidation easy and effective.
Welcome to the future of molecular testing
The cobas® 8800 System supports an automated and integrated workflow to run Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) based Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT). The cobas® 8800 System combines the functionalities of instrumentation, consumables, reagents, and data management to provide an efficient workflow from sample processing to result interpretation.
In the face of healthcare’s rapidly changing landscape, many laboratories are looking for sustainable long-term solutions. End your search with the cobas® 8800 System, the first very high throughput, fully integrated laboratory automation system with a broad menu.
This industry-leading system sits at the heart of the Molecular Work Area—an unrivaled efficiency and connectivity solution for laboratories looking to secure their future success. The Molecular Work Area unlocks your ability to automate and consolidate up to 90% of routine testing into a single workflow, even across disciplines. With up to 4 hours of walk-away time* and just 3 user interactions per run, lab staff are free to focus on higher-value tasks.
As healthcare shifts from volume to value, the cobas® 8800 System can help you elevate the value your laboratory provides your organization. Since 2014, more than 1000 cobas® 6800 and cobas® 8800 Systems have been installed on five continents, helping laboratories automate, consolidate, integrate and standardize molecular testing like never before.
Deliver trusted, reproducible results while rapidly completing your daily testing requirements. The cobas® 8800 System can run up to 96 results in about 3 hours* and up to 1,824 results from an 8 hour shift.
*May vary based on assay availability in your country
Transform “walk-away” time into “work-away” time. With minimal and intuitive interactions, laboratories can reduce the potential for human error, maximize safety and free-up technicians for higher value-added tasks.
With the Molecular Work Area’s modular design, you can easily integrate pre-analytical automation solutions to further streamline workflows, reduce the risk of cross contamination, and elevate efficiency to new heights.
The cobas® 8800 System requires no sorting or batching of samples, no reagent preparation, and no manual set up of runs.
Standardized workflows across a broad menu of assays allow for optimized resource management, reducing training requirements and numbers of suppliers.
The cobas omni Utility Channel allows you to broaden your menu and achieve greater testing flexibility. This dedicated open channels brings the workflow efficiencies of IVD test to high-volume laboratory developed tests (LDTs) and third party assays, standardizing workflows and minimizing the opportunity for error.
From standalone physical connectivity to advanced virtual integration, the Molecular Work Area revolutionizes the way laboratories of all sizes approach molecular testing.
The cobas® 8800 System can be linked to pre- and post-analytical solutions, connected across disciplines, and enhanced with cutting-edge data solutions. The Molecular Work Area is truly in a class of its own.
