The cobas® Liat® PCR System

Lab-quality results at the point of care

The cobas® Liat® PCR System is a next-generation polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology from Roche. PCR technology is recognized as one of the most important scientific advances of the 20th century,1 previously available only to complex molecular laboratories.

About the size of a single-serve coffee maker, the cobas® Liat® PCR System delivers rapid, reliable results when they’re needed most, including turnaround times of ~15 minutes for a Strep A result and 20 minutes for a SARS-CoV-2 & Influenza A/B,* Influenza A/B, RSV or Cdiff result.

Expertly designed to optimize size, speed, and ease of use, this compact PCR solution delivers the premium performance you expect from the leader in molecular diagnostics, and is ideal for use in satellite laboratories or point-of-care locations.
