Application Area: Veterinary Clinical Pathology cobas® 6000 Chemistry Analyzer Series
"We only use the 501C portion for general chemistries, bile acids, phenobarbs, fructosamines and electrolytes. The semi-automated daily maintenance requires about an hour, with weekly maintenance taking about 2 hrs. Their customer/field service is excellent. The instrument is reliable and fairly easy to operate when properly maintained."
Application Area: Clinical Laboratory cobas® 6000 Chemistry Analyzer Series
"The daily maintenance alone takes a minimum of 2.5 hours, it would be better if this could be improved. I have had ISE problems- intermittent spurious results even after a successful calibration and quality control run- I have found this hard to troubleshoot. The names of the bulk solutions are different on the actual container and on the instrument position/location itself. I don't understand why there is this discrepancy."
