New Additions to the Fluent Liquid Handling Platform



Tecan has launched new hardware and software options to increase the possibilities of the Fluent Laboratory Automation Solutions. The new air displacement Flexible Channel Arm offers high definition liquid handling, greater accuracy and precision. The new system is simpler and increases lab productivity, and is specially suited to high throughput genomics applications. The FluentControl™ software has been upgraded with the Application Toolkit, which adds standard commands for common tasks like quantification and normalisation workflows. This saves a lot of time and effort as it is not necessary to program scripts.

Fluent is a laboratory automation solution by Tecan, a high precision liquid handling platform which features rapid pippeting, integrated consumables storage and microplate tracking, optimized deck capacity up to 72 plate positions, interchangeable work deck segments, touchscreen interface, personalized user operation and graphics, and many other advantages.
