Roche Cobas C 111


Cobas C 111

The cobas c 111 analyzer is a tabletop system designed to set the next gold standard in automated clinical chemistry testing for small laboratories.    
With key components such as optics, reagents and calibrators taken from larger COBAS Integra and cobas blood gas systems used in reference labs and hospitals, the cobas c111 system joins a family of analyzers designed to deliver consistent results from the smallest to the largest system.
