Roche announced that it has received clearance from the FDA for a fully automated vitamin D test for use on COBAS modular platforms.

The Elecsys Vitamin D assay measures both vitamin D2 and D3. Test results are obtained using Roche’s electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detection technology, which provides a broad measuring range and high precision at the low end of detection to aid in the assessment of severely deficient patients.

The test will be available for use on all of Roche’s COBAS modular analyzer platforms.
