The cobas® Liat® PCR System
When there is a pressing need for a diagnosis and a treatment decision, patients rely on you and your staff for the most responsive, trustworthy medical attention available.
The Roche cobas Liat PCR System allows you to detect and identify Influenza A/B and Strep A—in your own clinic, using advanced Roche PCR technology previously available only to complex molecular laboratories.
The cobas Liat System is small, easy to use and fast—able to provide accurate results by the end of a patient’s appointment.
And there is minimal training required.
The cobas Liat System is on-site molecular testing you can depend on. For the patients who depend on you.

Unparalleled accuracy in diagnostic testing
. . . now at physicians' fingertips
Since 1983, Roche has pioneered the advancement of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis, now recognized as a gold standard in laboratory diagnostics.
*Data on file
Recognized as one of the most important scientific advances of the 20th century1, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a quick, easy way to create unlimited copies of DNA from just one original strand.

The cobas Liat System for results-oriented patient care
In large molecular laboratories, PCR analysis is performed on many samples simultaneously—a multi-step process requiring a skilled technician.
The cobas Liat System fully automates these steps for the rapid analysis of a single sample, making it ideal for time-sensitive in-office diagnoses.
No operator intervention or interpretation required.
The cobas Liat Analyzer compresses the assay tube to selectively release reagents from tube segments, move the sample from one segment to another, and control reaction conditions at different temperatures.
