Diagnostic solutions

Diagnostic solutions by types

At Roche Diagnostics, we develop diagnostic tests, instruments and digital solutions with the power to transform healthcare for people around the globe

In-vitro tests

Our core business is the discovery, development and manufacturing of in vitro tests for the diagnosis of various diseases that include cancer, diabetes, Covid-19, hepatitis, human papillomavirus and many others.

In vitro diagnostics (IVDs) are tests that can detect disease, conditions and infections done on samples such as blood or tissue that have been taken from the human body. They allow doctors to diagnose patients effectively and work to provide appropriate treatments.

The samples are analysed directly at physicians' offices or in laboratories, which we supply with our tests and instruments.


Most of our in vitro tests run on diagnostic instruments that we develop and manufacture ourselves or with external partners. Some of these devices are small, and are used to analyse a patient's blood or urine. You can find these in doctors offices and clinics. Other instruments are large analysis modules, some the size of small cars, which can be integrated to provide a seamless molecular diagnostics solution for central laboratories. These systems allow hundreds of samples to be analysed in parallel, testing for many different diseases.

The laboratory-based diagnostic systems work with advanced technologies equally as sophisticated as those you might find in modern aircraft. These analytical laboratory instruments are fully automatic, enabling the analysis of a large number of samples in a short time. In addition, advanced automation reduces the opportunity for error, which benefits patients. Thus, laboratories are able to deliver high-quality patient results in a highly efficient manner.

Digital Health Solutions

We are transforming healthcare with innovation and collaboration. Using an evidence-based approach, our insights-driven digital health solutions aim to support patient care.

At Roche, we have a rich heritage in healthcare innovation and care reinvention. And, together with our efforts to build collaborative open digital ecosystems, we can leverage diagnostic data and turn them into insights. These insights can help inform decisions and improve efficiencies in labs and clinics.

For laboratories, we offer workflow and operations solutions to help optimise efficiency.

For healthcare providers, we offer virtual care and decision support solutions to confidently diagnose, optimise resources and help personalise treatment.

For patients, we offer digital diagnostic solutions for self-monitoring and the delivery of test results.
