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
  • Allergy
  • 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

Roche Diagnostics and DASA - Partnership that grows stronger

While DASA has experienced unprecedented growth and success with their integrated lab, they don’t plan on slowing down. Alessandro Veiga states, “We haven’t stopped growing. DASA has an expectation to become a global leader in diagnostic medicine throughout the world.”

DASA Group’s vision is to be the best company in the world in diagnostic medicine and one of the largest in the industry. And to realize this vision, they chose to partner with Roche Diagnostics.

PAML, USA and Roche

PAML partners with Roche Diagnostics, two companies which share the same values: "doing now what patients need next". PAML in Spokane, Washington state is one of the top reference laboratories in the USA. With PAML's pioneering spirit and Roche's innovative technologies and services, a new central lab was created based on the Roche Integrated Core Lab solutions and consulting.
