Our navify® portfolio of integrated digital solutions enables open digital ecosystems that connect to innovations, drive operational efficiencies and generate actionable insights for improved patient care.”

Roche will be featuring new innovations, such as several molecular systems from the growing PCR portfolio – the cobas® 5800 and the new LightCycler® PRO System, launching later this year.  A prototype for the new cobas® Mass Spec system will be revealed, bringing mass spectrometry into the routine testing environment. The system will complement the serum work area portfolio so that in the future, healthcare communities will  benefit from an extended diagnostic platform offering clinical chemistry, heterogeneous immunoassays, and mass spectrometry.  The new cobas® connection modules (CCM Vertical), a flexible modular system that uses lab space effectively, and seamlessly integrates into the existing cobas® connection modules, improving lab efficiency, will also be featured*. 

Roche will also introduce its navify digital solutions to the laboratory community. navify digital solutions aim to solve laboratories’ need for seamless and secure connectivity between systems, instruments and even devices from different providers as well as empowering lab leaders to drive operational efficiencies, and help clinicians gain greater medical insights.

Attendees can also listen to industry experts discuss digital solutions, point of care, mass spectrometry, neurology and cyber security during in-booth talks. They can also tour a state-of-the-art innovation room showing the connected portfolio of point of care devices.
