Roche Launches Cobas 5800, a New Molecular Diagnostics System to Expand Access to Testing and Improve Patient Care

Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced the launch of the cobas® 5800 System, a new molecular laboratory instrument, in countries accepting the CE mark. Testing is one of the first lines of defense to protect a patient’s general well-being and is vitally important in quickly guiding their treatment. The cobas 5800 System helps address challenges that laboratories are facing from an increase in patient testing, reimbursement complexities and the need for a more diverse testing menu while providing meaningful and timely results.

“Diagnostics continue to revolutionise how providers care for patients, and it is essential, now more than ever, that the healthcare community has access to reliable and accurate testing solutions,” said Thomas Schinecker, CEO Roche Diagnostics. ”We are pleased that we can now offer a compact, fully-automated molecular system such as the cobas 5800 System. This new system helps to address the high demands on labs through greater efficiency, optimised workflows and cost savings, enabling them to deliver quality patient care.”

The cobas 5800 system, the newest member of the Roche Molecular Work Area, is built upon the innovation of the cobas® 6800 and cobas® 8800 systems, making molecular testing accessible to more patients around the world.

Roche anticipates receiving U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval during Q3 2022.
