This standalone sub automation solution is validated for cross contamination compliance and
therefore may be used to automate and simplify processes in clinical laboratories and blood banks.
Automating a single point of entry for multiple tube types, vendors and disciplines, giving labs the flexibility to support their workflow needs.
Whether your automation needs are basic, intermediate, or advanced, Roche has a scalable stand-alone solution to meet the different workflow needs of different labs.
Roche’s stand-alone systems are designed in compact configurations that sacrifice nothing in functionality when compared with their larger-sized competitors.
Our open automation concept gives you the flexibility to handle any tube for any discipline for virtually any analytical vendor.
Proven, reliable systems used globally, every day. Roche stand-alone automation portfolio is globally established and accepted with >1,130 systems worldwide and counting.
