cobas® 4800 System

Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology system for the detection of mutations in the KRAS,* BRAF and EGFR* genes of tumor samples

The cobas® 4800 System, v2.0 is a real-time PCR system for the detection of mutations in the KRAS, BRAF and EGFR genes of tumor samples. It features manual sample preparation, PCR technology for amplification and detection combined with automated results interpretation and reporting.

Features and Benefits


Streamlined manual DNA sample preparation

CLART® Technology

CLART® is a low density microarray-based platform for clinical use that allows the detection of multiple targets in a single test. Sample processing is straightforward and the analysis and interpretation of results are performed automatically by a reader (CAR) running tailor-made software. Its simplicity makes this technology suitable for every molecular diagnostics laboratory.
