Roche Diagnostics (Basel, Switzerland) is showcasing innovative laboratory solutions and digital diagnostics through - "Innovation Past, Present and Future" at this year's WorldLab-EuroMedLab 2023 in Rome, Italy, 21-25 May. Attendees can experience first-hand Roche's latest technological advancements in lab automation, serum work area, molecular and point of care solutions, and discover how the company is transforming patient care through advancements in breakthrough high-medical value diagnostic and digital solutions.

At the 2023 EuroMedLab Congress, Roche is featuring new innovations, such as several molecular systems from the growing PCR portfolio – the cobas 5800 and the new LightCycler PRO System, which will be launched later this year. A prototype for the new cobas Mass Spec system is being unveiled, bringing mass spectrometry into the routine testing environment. The system complements the serum work area portfolio, allowing healthcare communities to benefit in the future from an extended diagnostic platform offering clinical chemistry, heterogeneous immunoassays, and mass spectrometry.

The new cobas connection modules (CCM Vertical), a flexible modular system that makes effective utilization of lab space and seamlessly integrates into the existing cobas connection modules, improving lab efficiency, is also being featured at the industry event. Roche is also introducing its navify digital solutions to the laboratory community that are designed to fulfill the laboratories' need for seamless and secure connectivity between systems, instruments and even devices from different providers, as well as empowering lab leaders to drive operational efficiencies and help clinicians gain greater medical insights.

"With the ever-changing needs of the healthcare system, laboratories, and clinicians are expected to optimize laboratory operations and efficiencies while improving patient care," said Ann Costello, Head of Roche Diagnostics Solutions at Roche Diagnostics. "We are pleased to present the next generation of innovative solutions that simplify and streamline testing for laboratories of all sizes, throughputs, and disciplines while supporting clinical decision-making to improve patient care."

"Laboratories have a unique opportunity to connect siloed data across systems and points of care for greater insights," said Moritz Hartmann, Head of Roche Information Solutions at Roche Diagnostics. "At Roche, we are working closely together with lab leaders to enable more patient-centered care. Our navify portfolio of integrated digital solutions enables open digital ecosystems that connect to innovations, drive operational efficiencies, and generate actionable insights for improved patient care."
