Roche launches automated vertical transportation for U.S. patient lab samples

Oct. 19, 2023
The cobas connection modules (CCM) Vertical – including elevator and overhead conveyors to transport patient samples – launches in the U.S.

Roche announced the U.S. launch of the cobas connection modules (CCM) Vertical, the elevator and overhead components of its fully automated and modular CCM system to help low-, mid- and high-volume laboratories optimize space, productivity and patient care. 

The CCM Vertical includes elevator units, overhead conveyors and overhead turn units that seamlessly integrate with Roche’s other CCM solutions. This cobas solution helps laboratorians simplify their lab operations by transporting patient samples hands-free in every direction – up, down, across and between rooms, around doorways, emergency exits and walkways, and through walls, ceilings and floors.  

The first CCM Vertical implementation in the U.S. is scheduled to go live at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in early 2024.
