Centralised & PoC Solutions

The Centralised & Point of Care (CPS) business area provides the market with instrument systems, tests, software and services that help clinical laboratories deliver reliable results more efficiently and cost-effectively. The products made by CPS help doctors make clinical decisions based on numerous indications in areas such as oncology and virology, as well as in cases of cardiovascular, inflammatory and infectious diseases. They provide healthcare specialists with critical information at the right time and in the right place. Centralised & Point of Care Solutions is also at the forefront of the growing market for rapid diagnostic products, and thus supports clinical decision-making close to patients in doctors’ offices, emergency rooms and other primary and specialty care settings.

By serving laboratories as well as the point of care in doctors’ offices and hospitals with a single business area, Roche is able to use the company’s strengths - for example, in cardiac marker tests - to benefit a wide range of customers, and is therefore better able to react to the needs of a growing number of customers who maintain a central laboratory alongside several branches.

The Rotkreuz site is the headquarters of Centralised & Point of Care Solutions, the largest of the five business areas in the Diagnostics division.
