The cobas e 801 module is the newest member of the cobas 8000 modular analyzer series. It offers more than 100 immunoassays, across a wide range of disease areas. Up to four cobas e 801 modules can be configured in series, delivering up to 1’200 tests per hour across up to 192 reagent positions. The cobas e 801 allows for continuous loading of reagents and consumables and has a high uptime while requiring less hands-on time. The possible turn-around times for routine and emergency samples are the lowest available on the central laboratory market, with 18 minutes for routine and 9 minutes for emergency tests, for instance with cardiac markers. The small sample volumes required for testing are especially beneficial for critical patients, such as neonates and oncology patients. The cobas e 801 module uses the well-established Elecsys technology.
