cobas® connection modules (CCM)

Everything designed to work together as one

cobas connection modules allow the connection of the standalone automation systems, cobas p 512 and cobas p 612, to analytics and post-analytics through a fast track.

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.

Your benefit

Multidisciplinary connectivity

  • Serum Work Area –cobas® 6000/8000 analyzer series, MODULAR ANALYTICS
  • Hematology – Sysmex HST/XN-9000 hematology analyzers
  • Coagulation – Stago STA-R Evolution® Expert Series System and Stago STA-R Max® System
  • Urinalysis –cobas® 6500 urine analyzer series
  • Molecular Diagnostics –cobas® 6800/8800 system
  • Post-analytics – cobas p 501/701 post-analytical unit

Quality comes first

CCM performs a comprehensive inspection of samples at an early stage, optimizing the lab workflow and ensuring the best use of time and resources.

  • Tube type identification
  • Sample volume check
  • Spin status detection
  • Sample quality check

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


Adapts to the lab’s sample handling needs.

  • A solution compatible with all lab disciplines
  • Single point of entry and bulk loading of tubes for convenient sample loading
  • Adapted sorting areas to your workflow to stay flexible. Automates sorting areas also for non-connected work areas
  • Long walk-away time
  • Flexibility of layouts with the possibility to easily adapt for future changes
Possible solutions

The fast track to sample flow efficiency
connection modules connects ­pre-analytical system to multidisciplinary targets streamlining and optimizing laboratory processes.

cobas connection modules is a connected automation solution validated for cross-contamination compliance and therefore may be used to automate and simplify ­processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.
