When there is a pressing need for a diagnosis and a treatment decision, patients rely on
you and your staff for the most responsive, trustworthy medical attention available.
The cobas Liat PCR System allows you to detect and identify Influenza A/B, Influenza
A/B & RSV and Strep A — in your own clinic, using gold-standard PCR technology
previously available only in complex molecular laboratories.
The cobas Liat PCR System is small, easy to use and fast—able to provide accurate results by
the end of a patient’s appointment.
The cobas Liat System is on-site molecular testing you can depend on.
For the patients who depend on you.
With real-time PCR technology
No need for interpretation.
3 easy steps; 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the assay.
. . . now at physicians' fingertips
Roche has pioneered the advancement of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis, now recognized as a gold standard in laboratory diagnostics.
Recognized as one of the most important scientific advances of the 20th century1, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a quick, easy way to create unlimited copies of DNA or RNA from just one original strand.

In large molecular laboratories, PCR analysis can be performed on many samples simultaneously—a multi-step process requiring a skilled technician.
The cobas Liat System fully automates these steps for the rapid analysis of a single sample, making it ideal for time-sensitive in-office diagnoses.
No operator intervention or interpretation required.
