24 Apr 2014 Monitoring the quality of beer with Tecan’s Infinite® M200 PRO
  The 2013 Jugend Innovativ competition saw Tecan collaborating with HLFS Ursprung and the Stiegl brewery to optimize the HybriScan™D Beer assay (Sigma-Aldrich) for the quality control of beer on an Infinite® M200 PRO multimode reader. Bernhard Stehrer, a science teacher at HLFS Ursprung, explained: “Students voluntarily participate in the prestigious Jugend Innovativ competition during their leisure time, and decided to investigate the science behind the quality control of beer. Stiegl provided samples for analysis and showed us the methods used in its laboratory, which involve assessment of cultures under a microscope. It can take a long time to acquire sufficient experience to confidently assess cultures this way, and we felt that molecular methods might be faster and easier to learn.” more
08 Apr 2014 Boost throughput and walkaway times with Tecan’s new Nested LiHa Disposable Tips
 

The demand for ever-increasing throughput means that many laboratories are looking for solutions to increase the capacity of their automated systems. Tecan has created Nested LiHa Disposable Tips specifically to meet this need, allowing up to five racks of the new 350 μl tips to be stacked on a single SLAS-format carrier. This space-saving solution allows optimized use of deck space, minimizing the need for manual intervention and increasing walkaway time for Freedom EVO® liquid handling workstations. more

11 Feb 2014 High throughput nanoliter pipetting with Tecan’s MCA 384
 

Scientists working at the Leibniz-Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) in Berlin, Germany, are benefitting from the low volume pipetting capability of a MultiChannel Arm™ (MCA) 384 for siRNA and small molecule screening. Martin Neuenschwander, an automation scientist working in Dr Jens Peter von Kries’ Screening Unit at the FMP, explained: “We have been using laboratory automation for small molecule screens for several years, and have four Freedom EVO® 200 platforms equipped with a variety of liquid handling arms. Material is often limited for compound screening, so we need to be able to pipette volumes down to 300 nl, and have invested in a new Freedom EVO platform optimized for this work.” more
