Personalized Lab Automation

At Roche, laboratory automation solutions deliver the quality and reliability you expect, with the personalization required by low-, mid- and high-volume laboratories.

With a complete portfolio in the market, Roche's Personalized Lab Automation ­provides customized solutions for every lab.

3 Levels of Automation

1. Virtual automation

To have the control you need, ensuring quality and efficiency across your lab, virtual automation gives you the capability to track your samples and reduce manual tasks through cobas IT solutions.

2. Standalone automation

Pre- and post-analytical tasks are automated, offering maximum efficiency through flexible standalone solutions. It significantly reduces manual steps in the lab, enhancing error handling, safety and process quality.

3. Connected automation

In addition to having all the benefits of standalone automation, connected automation offers transportation. Physically connecting different instruments allows for maximum predictability of time to test results.
