Laboratory Automation Solutions
With a broad range of features specifically designed to optimize the performance of cell-based and biochemical assays, Fluent enhances throughput, streamlines workflows and delivers more precise and reliable results. By simplifying the handling of precious samples and seamlessly integrating with cell biology devices, Fluent automates your complex assays for greater productivity and confidence.
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.
