Happy Birthday Tecan!

Thanks to the quality and reliability of its cost-effective solutions, the Tecan brand enjoys an enviable position in the scientific community. With many customers no longer having in-house automation experts, Tecan’s highly motivated and dedicated team of scientists and engineers are crucial to understanding users’ needs. This commitment has helped to continually meet the demands of the marketplace, mixing business requirements with scientific innovation to develop validated products and systems of real value to laboratories around the world. Extensive experience in quality and regulatory issues also provides substantial benefit to Tecan’s customers, and all business units are certified according to ISO 13485, the international standard for medical device companies.

Tecan continues to build on its success, developing solutions that are better and faster, and providing scientists with access to technologies that have previously been out of reach, as Thomas Bachmann, CEO, explained: “Tecan’s strength continues to lie in its broad and continuous history of innovating workflows and applications. We have expanded our global presence and strengthened our frontline service organizations and, looking ahead, we have ambitious goals to drive the stream of innovations forward to help our customers further enhance their processes.”
