cobas® 8000 modular analyser series

The cobas® 8000 modular analyser series acts intelligently, empowering your laboratory to improve customer and patient services.

A serum work area solution designed for high workload laboratories, enabling a throughput of 2.5 to 15 million tests per year or greater than 2.000 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 with innovative design elements. It offers intelligent sample routing with fast transportation and return lines, independent processing lines within each module and a unique reagent cassette concept - adding real value in high workload laboratories.
  • Broad test menu enables consolidation of up to 98 % of Serum Work Area workload


  • Maximises walk-away time
  • Optimises cost management
  • Improves sample turn-around time and availability


  • Delivers throughput with maximum consolidation power
  • Manages peak times efficiently
  • Increases sample capacity on board

Process innovation
