A fully automated, high-throughput system for HbA1c testing will be available for inspection at the 2016 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo (Philadelphia, PA, USA).

Roche (Basel, Switzerland) will introduce the cobas c 513 analyzer at Booth 1301 of the Philadelphia expo. The c 513 is a fully automated, high-throughput HbA1c testing solution with a module that can reach a throughput of up to 400 determinations per hour. The reagent compartment has 60 reagent positions that can be loaded providing up to 14,000 results.

The instrument features direct results reporting, which minimizes the risk of result misinterpretation and eliminates the need for performing time-consuming, manual result interpretation. This new analyzer also offers closed tube sampling, which reduces hands-on time, prevents sample contamination, and ensures operator safety.

As the instrument is still awaiting FDA 510(k) approval, the c 513 is not currently available in the USA.
