Roche Launches Cobas Liat System for Point of Care Environment

Roche announced the launch of the cobas Liat System a fast, compact, easy to use, molecular diagnostic platform, designed for on-demand testing in physician clinics, pharmacies and hospital lab settings. The system includes the cobas Liat Analyzer and a growing portfolio of assays, including the cobas Influenza A/B and cobas Strep A nucleic acid tests. Utilizing Nobel prize winning polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology, the cobas Liat System, fully automates the testing process, simplifies workflow and enables healthcare professionals to perform molecular testing in a variety of settings with speed, reliability and minimal training. Definitive results are generated in 20 minutes or less to aid a treatment decision.

Roche Expands CE-IVD Claims for Organ and Tissue Testing for Next Generation Blood Screening Assays

Roche announced that the cobas MPX and cobas WNV assays can now be used for testing of human organ and tissue from cadaveric (non-heart beating) donors, expanding the range of approved uses for the cobas 6800/8800 Systems and assays in markets accepting the CE mark. The new claims for cobas MPX and cobas WNV allow for pre-transplantation testing of organ and tissue donations, protecting transplant recipients from the donation-related transmission of HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and West Nile virus (WNV). Across the European Union, the transplantation of organs from deceased donors is a critical procedure performed for over 30,000 patients each year. The urgent nature of organ transplant procedures from deceased donors requires infectious disease screening to be carried out as quickly as possible to preserve organ function prior to transplantation. The cobas MPX and cobas WNV assays, in conjunction with the cobas 6800/8800 Systems provide the fast time to results, ensuring the delivery of accurate, reliable test results to clinicians and patients at critical decision points in a patient's care. cobas MPX is a real-time PCR multiplex test covering five critical viral targets: HIV-1 Group M, HIV-1 Group O, HIV-2, HCV and HBV, from a single sample. It offers real-time detection and identification of HIV, HCV and HBV, eliminating both the need for discriminatory testing and the potential for discrepant results. Plus, the dual-target approach with amplification of separate regions of HIV-1, and dual probes for HCV, improve coverage of new virus variants. cobas WNV is a real-time PCR test for West Nile virus (WNV) that is highly sensitive for both WNV lineages 1 and 2. It also provides broad coverage of other flaviviruses that can cause transfusion-transmitted infectious diseases. cobas HEV is a real-time PCR test for hepatitis E virus (HEV), providing broad coverage of all 4 major HEV genotypes. The cobas 6800 and 8800 Systems are fully automated solutions designed for donor screening, viral load monitoring, women's health and microbiology testing. They are available in medium and high throughput models, respectively. Based on the Nobel-prize winning PCR technology, the systems are designed to deliver increased automation and throughput with shorter time to results, providing users with greater testing flexibility to increase overall workflow efficiencies. The systems provide up to 96 results in less than 3.5 hours, and a total of 384 results for the cobas® 6800 and 960 results for the cobas® 8800 in an 8 hour shift. Both systems allow for mixed batching, making it possible for labs to perform up to three tests in the same run with no pre-sorting required. The systems also enable up to eight hours (cobas 6800) and four hours (cobas 8800) of 'work-away' time with minimal user interaction.
