Roche launches new cobas analyser
This article was originally published in Clinica
Roche has launched its cobas e 602 immunoassay analyser, the latest in its cobas 8000 series for diagnostic labs with high-volume workloads. The cobas 8000 system consists of a core unit and up to four optional modules, including the cobas e 602, and others for high- or mid-throughput clinical chemistry (cobas c 701 and c 502, respectively). This means that the two testing methods can be carried out on one system, but customers can select which individual modules they need and add more in the future if necessary. The cobas e 602 module uses Roche's electrochemiluminescence technology and includes over 50 assays on its initial test menu. It can carry out up to 170 immunoassay tests per hour.
