Fluent™ Laboratory Automation Solution

Laboratory Automation Solutions

Tecan has reinvented automation with Fluent, a unique instrumentation concept built around the application-specific needs of your laboratory. Fluent breaks new ground, delivering more capacity and increased speed. The platform provides superior precision, throughput and walkaway time—making it easier to get more done, more confidently.

TouchTools touchscreen interface

Daily operation is easy using Fluent’s built-in touchscreen that guides users with clear, graphical instructions and alerts, ensuring consistent operation and faster, more efficient runs.

Device integration for fully automated workflows

Below-deck arm access allows the seamless integration of cell-based assay peripherals—from incubators to readers—for a complete walkaway solution without increasing your instrument footprint.

Patented Dynamic Deck

Engineered to hold up to 72 plates, Fluent’s unique Dynamic Deck can be easily configured and reconfigured to suit your changing assay requirements.

Parallel arm movements for fast assay completion

Three task-specific arms move in parallel for optimum speed and efficiency, minimizing the time cells spend outside the incubator for more accurate, reliable results.

High-definition liquid handling

Exacting engineering ensures precision and accuracy over a wide dynamic range, from submicroliter to milliliter volumes. Tecan’s patented Adaptive Signal Technology precisely detects even small volumes, allowing the use of less reagent and sample for dramatic cost savings.
