COBAS TaqMan 48 Analyzer
- Application flexibility
The product’s utility channel provides the flexibility to consolidate standardized assays for virus testing* and as many as 10 user-defined applications on a single platform.
- Fast procedure, fast results
Real-time PCR allows amplification and detection of RNA and DNA within hours.
- Simple to use
Closed analyzer requires no user interaction after sample loading is completed, reducing the risk of sample contamination and optimizing workflow.
- Easy to integrate
Compact footprint requires little space.
- Superior assay performance
Highly sensitive and highly specific, with a broad dynamic range.
- Data management
AMPLILINK software provides a simple, efficient user interface between the COBAS TaqMan 48 Analyzer and the custom-built, Windows-based PC supplied with the system.
- Loading capacity
Two different assays can be loaded on board simultaneously. Each thermal cycler can run individual PCR profiles.
Next-generation polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for clinical laboratories. The COBAS TaqMan 48 Analyzer allows automated real-time amplification and detection of DNA or RNA for up to two simultaneous assays.
Our lab uses this machine for the following tests:
- Qualitative analysis of MTB
- Qualitative / Quantitative analysis of HBV
- Qualitative / Quantitative analysis of HCV
- Quantitative analysis of HIV
