The growing flexibility

You can still take advantage of the huge flexibility of the standalone automation concept, while adding predictability of time to results by getting connected through cobas® connection modules.


Multidisciplinary connectivity


CCM gives you the option to connect multiple laboratory disciplines in a seamless integrated solution:

  • Serum Work Area
  • Hematology
  • Coagulation
  • Urinalysis
  • Immunochemistry
  • Molecular Diagnostics
  • Post-analytics


Quality comes first


Comprehensive inspection of samples at an early stage, optimizing the lab workflow and ensuring the best use of time and resources, including:


  • Tube type identification
  • Liquid Level Detection 
  • Spin status detection, which identifies whether blood samples have been centrifuged or not 
  • Sample quality check, which enables detection of normal, hemolytic, lipemic and icteric samples


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




Easy on-site solution expansion as you need it


High flexibility for standalone work area


CCM is also a valuable option for sorting non-connected work areas:

  • Flexible and freely definable sorting areas
  • Sorting into various racks supplied from Roche and other vendors
  • First pass and recursive workflow
  • Archiving of samples


Fast and simply efficient
