cobas p 512 / p 612 pre-analytical systems

Adapting to today’s needs. Flexible for tomorrow’s demand

Evolution of cobas p 512 / 612 pre-analytical systems – new and innovative standalone solutions for high throughput laboratories. cobas p 612 differs from cobas p 512 due to the aliquot functionality.

These standalone automation solutions are validated for cross-contamination compliance and therefore may be used to automate and simplify processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.


The best answer to face emerging challenges in laboratory operations.

  • Upgradeable to connected automation
  • Easy to add functionalities
  • Comprehensive inspection of sample quality
  • Increased productivity in the same footprint


Adapts to the laboratory’s sample handling needs.

  • A solution compatible with all laboratory disciplines
  • Adapted sorting areas to your workflow to stay flexible
  • Single point of entry and bulk loading of tubes for convenient sample loading
  • Long walk-away time

Quality comes first

The new generation of cobas p 512/612 pre-analytical systems perform a comprehensive inspection of samples at an early stage, optimising the laboratories workflow and ensuring the best use of time and resources.

  • Tube type identification
  • Sample volume check
  • Spin status detection
  • Sample quality check
  • Freely definable input and output sorting areas
  • Input with capacity of 600 samples and output of 1,200 samples
  • Connection to a bulk loader module
  • Connection to single or double centrifuge
  • Handling of Roche and non-Roche racks and centrifuge buckets
  • Throughput up to 1,400 samples/hour
  • Registration of primary samples
  • Orientation of barcode in a “good-to-read” position
  • Tube type identification
  • Sample volume and quality check
  • Spin status detection

Detects if blood samples have been already centrifuged or not:

  • Early detection and sorting of tubes with errors and issues
  • Selective decapping of sample tubes
  • cobas p 612 pre-analytical system includes an aliquoting section with barcode labelling of secondary tubes
  • Sorting of tubes directly into analyser target racks
  • Archiving of processed samples with optional recapping
  • Upgradeability to connected automation
