cobas® connection modules (CCM)

Everything designed to work together as one

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

The solution offers the flexibility of the standalone automation concept, while adding predictability of time to results by integration through cobas® connection modules.

The fast track to sample flow efficiency

CCM connects cobas p 512 or cobas p 612 pre-analytical system to multidisciplinary targets streamlining and optimising laboratory workflow processes including archiving and sample retrieval.


CCM is NAT validated
The solution is validated for cross-contamination compliance and therefore may be used to automate and simplify processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.


Multi-disciplinary connectivity

  • Serum Work Area – cobas® 6000/8000 analyser series, MODULAR® ANALYTICS
  • Haematology – Sysmex HST/XN-9000 haematology analysers
  • Coagulation – Stago STA-R Evolution® Expert Series System and Stago STA-R Max® System
  • Urinalysis – cobas® 6500 urine analyser series
  • Molecular Diagnostics – cobas® 6800/ 8800 system
  • Post-analytics – cobas p 501 / cobas p 701 post-analytical storage and retrieval module

Quality comes first
CCM performs a comprehensive inspection of samples at an early stage, optimising the laboratory 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
Personalised 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 optimise the benefits of both workflows

Adapts to the laboratory’s sample handling needs.

  • Solution compatible with all laboratory 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
