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.

Parallel arm movements
Faster, more streamlined workflows
Three independent, task-specific arms move in parallel to simultaneously and efficiently automate methods. Sample preparation, labware movement to peripheral devices and plate to plate or reagent additions can all occur in parallel – maximizing workflow performance.
Greater pipetting reliability and consistency
Adaptive Signal Technology™, a new generation of liquid level sensing, enables use of smaller sample volumes, minimizes the risk of errors and provides exceptional automated error handling.
Next-generation liquid handling control
Fluent’s unique teach-free hardware and Path Finder™ move optimization technology deliver unmatched positional accuracy and precision for enhanced process security and peace-of-mind.
More functionality in less space
With its industry-leading deck and below deck arm access, Fluent can accommodate multiple devices without expanding its footprint. Enjoy true walkaway operation with the seamless integration of complementary peripherals all fully managed by FluentControl™.
Easy programming and operation
FluentControl™ software simplifies even the most challenging applications. Use drag & drop interfaces, 3D graphics, and single Smart Commands to distribute reagents or transfer samples.
Worklisting for greater speed and efficiency
Create everything from pipetting steps to hit picking processes in an Excel or text file and then run them with FluentControl software.
Exceptional ease of use and enhanced process security
Built-in touchscreen interface guides users through daily tasks for fast, consistent operation. Integrated user management including method permissions, ensures secure protocols and optimizes selection for each user.
Powerful liquid handling
FluentControl offers robust default liquid definitions and makes it easy to change parameters for any fluid.
