SGS Life Science Services has acquired a Cobas 6000 Analyzer System, chemistry module, for use at its Poitiers, France laboratory. This platform allows the determination of a large number of biological parameters (biomarkers) and metabolites, in as little as two minutes, with precision and reliability, using very small sample volumes.
Employing the concept of "open" technology, the Cobas 6000 provides for easy-to-use reagents as well as those not provided by the manufacturer. This promotes the optimization of protocols and allows SGS to offer additional tests that can be validated based upon the company’s expertise. In order to meet the requirements of bioanalytical Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), all results are entered directly into the Watson Laboratory Information Management System for traceability of analysis and can be grouped by patient, even if the results are obtained during long-term kinetics.
