cobas p 630 instrument
The cobas p 630 instrument is a primary tube pipettor used for pre-analytical sample processing. It is used in combination with the COBAS® AmpliPrep Instrument and the COBAS® TaqMan® Analyser or COBAS® TaqMan® 48 Analyser, thus providing a fully automated workflow starting from primary sample tubes and ending with the PCR results. The cobas p 630 instrument prepares the sample racks used on the COBAS® AmpliPrep instrument. Pipetting of samples and controls is done directly from primary patient tubes and control vials. Sample dilution is also supported.
The prepared sample racks are manually transferred to a COBAS® AmpliPrep instrument and are ready to be used. One cobas p 630 instrument can serve up to three COBAS® AmpliPrep instruments. The complete system provides a flexible and integrated solution with fully automated pre-analytics and real-time PCR diagnostic testing for a menu of important virology tests (HIV-1, HCV, HBV).
