Roche Cobas Integra 800

■ Real efficiency
With COBAS INTEGRA® 800 efficiency is all about doing
more with less. A single analytical platform for all special testing allows the laboratory to significantly reduce the number
of workstations and reduce its production costs. This can be
done with confidence due to the proven track record of the
COBAS INTEGRA 800, which is in turn supported by the various on-board technologies employed.
◆ cobas c pack: The compact size means that up to 68 different tests can be kept on-board at once. For consolidation of
all special tests this on-board capacity is a must.
Furthermore the reagent stability on the COBAS INTEGRA
800 (up to 6 months) means that you will waste less reagent
compared to other options.
◆ Disposable reaction cuvette: low reaction volumes (>120 µl)
means, more tests per cobas c pack, more tests per µl sample,
no carry over
◆ FP module: best in class testing technology, very stable,
suitable even for low frequency TDM tests, uses stable
L.E.D light source which never drifts, requires maintenance
nor calibration.
◆ Multiple reaction modes and curve fit options: extensive
parameter settings, permit the large (>150 applications)
menu of both simple and complex chemistries. The new
Tina-quant HbA1c application for instance runs with the
new “twin test” reaction mode, which runs the total Hb and
HbA1c in the one cuvette.
◆ Development Channels: this feature provides the customer
with access to all the unique system features in a way which
allows them to develop missing applications to supplement
the large Roche menu.
■ More productivity
Staff productivity in terms of valuable tasks performed each
day, is improved drastically with COBAS INTEGRA 800, due
to simplification of workflow and reduction or removal of
redundant tasks.
◆ The RD5 sample rack: The common sample carrier in the
Roche world, supports primary tube sample flow between
its analytical platforms, as well as permit access to automation lines. This decreases the need to handle samples manually and to split samples.
◆ Closed tube option for HbA1c: For high throughput dedicated HbA1c testing, simple modifications to the COBAS
INTEGRA 800 permits through the tube sampling. This
eliminates the need to mix, de-cap and re-cap, which significantly reduces non productive hands on time.

◆ Reagents: The new reagent line is all liquid - preparation is
a task of the past. On-board stability and lot calibration
mean less time calibration and more reportable results per
cobas c pack. High on-board capacity (68 packs) means
infrequent loading. Inventory management with the
optional Organizer module efficiently organizes 180 of your
reagents by type and lot, in an easy to use system which
stores into every laboratory refrigerator. Never loose a
reagent, never mix the lots and never run out reagents on
Friday afternoon - again.
◆ Begin-of-day: This definable subroutine will wake the analyzer and perform all daily maintenance tasks – before you
enter the laboratory. Even a daily reagent forecast report
will be waiting.
■ Insured quality
◆ Quality of reagents
All Roche Diagnostics assays are specifically developed for
and validated on Roche Diagnostics systems - guaranteed
performance you can rely upon. Continual quality control
during each manufacturing step and for each lot ensures
consistently high analytical quality.
◆ Quality and control of the analytical process
During the pipetting and analytical processes, COBAS
INTEGRA® 800 employs multiple control mechanisms
designed to identify sample and reaction abnormalities.
The Pipetting Integrity Check (PIC) assures sample integrity
via high sensitivity level and clot detection systems and
monitors sample pipetting via dispensing control.
Reaction kinetics, including Antigen Excess, are monitored
automatically for all measurement modes. Samples with
reaction flags can be automatically handled, e.g. rerun or
diluted, by the system according to laboratory requirements.
The overall benefit of these control mechanisms is to
increase confidence in and security of patient results, while
reducing the need for manual sample handling.

Vital Diagnostics Envoy 500

Touch Screen
The Envoy 500 has a built-in LCD touch screen and, is driven by the Windows® 2000 operating system. This provides greater ease of use and space savings by eliminating a bulky external monitor and CPU.

Quality Control
Quality Control results are stored in memory
and easily displayed on the screen. QC can be evaluated using up to six Westgard rules and displayed with either Levey-Jennings Graphs or Juden Plots.

Pre-Programmed Parameters
The Envoy Reagent application parameters are pre-loaded into the software, saving you time and eliminating the possibility of data entry mistakes.

Large Capacity
The Envoy 500 holds up to 40 individual Envoy reagents (mono or dual), providing a longer walk-away operation.

Refrigerated Reagent Tray
Onboard refrigeration and storage assures
reagent stability, which increases reliability of
results, while lowering laboratory costs.

Continuous Inventory Monitoring
Continuous inventory monitoring enables the operator to know the number of tests remaining for each reagent, minimizing waste.

Positive Reagent Identification
The reagent chamber contains an infrared
barcode scanner capable of scanning Envoy
bar coded reagents, automatically recognizing reagent position and lot expiration intervals.

Sample Wheel
The Envoy 500 sample wheel has 52 positions available for patient samples and 26 for calibrators and controls providing your laboratory high throughput capability. Primary tubes or sample cups can be used, providing the testing flexibility you need.

Liquid Sensor Detection
Liquid sensor detection prevents reporting of invalid results from an insufficient sample.
This ensures accurate results and proper
treatment decisions.

Positive Sample Identification
The sample chamber contains an infrared
barcode scanner, capable of scanning
your patient barcodes eliminating the need
to manually enter patient information and
reducing the risk of sample errors that can
cost you time and money.

Dry Electrodes
The Envoy 500 utilizes a proven, dry,
solid-state ISE (Ion Selective Electrode)
that doesn’t need to be kept wet, reducing
reagent consumption.

Four Parameters
The ISE system has four electrodes, Na+,
K+, Cl- and CO2, providing a complete
test panel without adding an enzymatic
procedure or using a traditional ‘wet’
electrode. This significantly reduces costs
and maintenance time, while increasing
reliability of results.

Glass Cuvettes
The Envoy 500 contains 34 reusable glass
cuvettes that are automatically washed
on board, which eliminates the cost of
expensive disposable cuvettes.

Increased Walk-away Time
The reusable glass cuvettes also provide
your lab longer walk-away time than a
system using disposable cuvettes, which
requires you to return to the instrument
to reload cuvettes on a regular basis.
