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
The growing flexibility

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

CCM solution 1

CCM is a connected automation solution validated for cross-contamination compliance and therefore may be used to automate and simplify processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.
