Laboratories have been burdened with inflexible and costly MRSA/SA testing solutions for too long. Finally, there is a better option. With the new cobas MRSA/SA and C diff tests, laboratories now have the ability to test more efficiently than ever before.
Laboratories today need the flexibility to manage daily workflow and varying throughput demands. They also need to be able to adapt quickly when those needs change. Since 1983, Roche has researched and introduced platforms with one goal in mind: helping labs overcome obstacles to the practical use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology.
Automation reduces hands-on time and makes the cobas 4800 System easy to operate. The intuitive graphical interface provides all the necessary instructions. Users are guided through each step, from sample loading to starting a new run.
The cobas 4800 System automates your workflow where you need it most. No reagent prep, no manual sample barcode scanning, and no manual data entry required.
The cobas 4800 System automatically performs the assay preparation procedure and transfers your samples to 96-well plates, ready for PCR amplification and detection. Labs can process up to188 results within 8 hours of small batch runs.
The cobas 4800 System requires the least amount of hands-on time compared to other competitors. 1
The cobas 4800 System gives you the flexibility to test MRSA/SA, Cdiff, and HSV 1 and 2 test samples in the same run, prepared from different types of primary vials. You can also run different-sized sample batches.
