Integrated Analyzer Series
150 tests on one platform
Roche_cobas 6000 ce 500The Cobas 6000 analyzer series from Roche Diagnostics, Indianapolis, adapts to laboratory workloads with seven possible configurations. The system consolidates more than 150 tests on one integrated platform, combining stat with routine testing and offering both preanalytical and postanalytical solutions. Liquid, ready-to-use reagents are standardized across the Cobas family of analyzers and eliminate error involved with human mixing of reagents. Immunoassay tests using electrochemiluminscence (ECL) technology offer a broad measuring range and low-end sensitivity, reducing the need for dilutions and repeat testing. ECL immunoassays have an average coefficient of variation of less than 6%. Sample and system integrity checks such as test-specific serum indices, disposable immunoassay tips and cups, and clot and liquid level detection help to ensure quality results.
