cobas® 8000 modular analyzer series

Intelligent Labpower

  • A serum work area solution designed for high workload laboratories, enabling a throughput of 2,5 to 15 million tests per year or 2,000 to 10,000 samples per day
  • Consists of up to 4 modules and is expandable on-site
  • Combinations of modules offer more than 100 configurations to tailor solutions to individual laboratory needs
  • Innovative design elements - such as intelligent sample routing with fast transportation and return lines, independent processing lines within each module and a unique reagent cassette concept - add real value in high workload laboratories
  • Broad test menu enables consolidation of up to 98 % of Serum Work Area workload

cobas 8000 modular analyzer series - Intelligent LabPower


The cobas 8000 modular analyzer series offers new dimensions in productivity, efficiency, process innovation and consolidation:

High speed

  • Up to 680 immunoassay tests per hour and up to 9,800 clinical chemistry tests per hour depending on configurations
  • Fast rack transport: the core unit processes up to 1,000 samples per hour for seamless sample processing

Intelligent sample dynamics

  • Independent transportation and return line as well as independent processing line in each module enables fast sample processing without interfering with the main line
  • Intelligent sample routing, rerun and reflex testing means samples take the fastest way out - via shortcuts supported by switch gates in each module

Intelligent workflow management

  • Seamless STAT integration for improved sample turnaround time (TAT) and results availability
  • Connectivity to pre- and post-analytics allow integration and further automation for less variability and more predictability

Premium quality and safety

  • Contact-free ultrasonic mixing and disposable tips reduce carryover potential and water consumption
  • Clot and foam detection ensures safe pipetting
  • Proven high quality reagents and reliable Hitachi systems create confidence in results.

Multidimensional modularity

  • More than 100 configurations and up to 280 reagent channels mean you can tailor solutions for clinical chemistry, immunochemistry and serum work area testing in line with individual laboratory needs
