cobas® prime pre-analytical system

Accelerating speed and efficiency in the molecular lab

cobas prime pre-analytical system
Streamlining and simplifying your lab operation

In today’s fast-paced molecular laboratories, efficiency and flexibility are critical to avoid a bottleneck of samples requiring pre-analytics processing. Imagine a solution that automatically prepares the variety and volume of samples you receive. That’s the cobas® prime Pre-analytical System.

As the first and only fully automated system that consolidates, integrates and standardizes the pre-analytical process, it streamlines and simplifies your lab operation so technicians can focus on higher-level challenges and opportunities.

Manual pre-analytical steps are performed for you

The cobas® prime Pre-analytical System offers complete automation and continuous random loading to achieve an unprecedented level of efficiency in the molecular lab.

  • An automated workflow helps protect the lab from cross contamination, processing error and missteps that can occur during scanning, aliquoting, sample preparation and reagent preparation
  • The system continuously loads — without presorting —multiple molecular sample types for multiple tests into a universal tray and performs pre-analytical processing before transferring the samples to the analyzer for testing


One universal sample input tray, with no sorting or batching

Multiple sample types and tests can be consolidated to streamline the pre-analytical process and reduce the amount of training required.

  • A single universal tray holds multiple sample types and is placed into a single system, eliminating the need for a variety of instruments to process a variety of sample types
  • The universal tray can be filled with samples in sample reception, then loaded directly into the cobas® prime Pre-analytical System without any additional manual handling
  • An optional Process Pluss Module provides broader functionality including reagent addition and re-capping tubes


Solve your testing challenges with a single solution

Utilize industry leading instruments to form a single solution that transforms your operation into a laboratory of the future.

  • The system can be easily integrated as a stand-alone instrument or as a connected via a compatible track system
  • LIS connectivity with cobas® Infinity middleware


Unrivaled workflow standardization

  • Improve ease of use and reduce staff training using a single instrument that can handle multiple sample types
  • Reliably deliver predictable and efficient turnaround time and throughput
