Te-PoolSafe™ provides safety and security with accurate sample pooling

  Tecan’s new PoolSafe™ Option (Te-PoolSafe™) is a fast balance module that serves as a liquid arrival check for pooling applications in blood banks for preparation of nucleic acid testing (NAT). The Te-PoolSafe measures and checks every liquid arrival of each sample dispensed into the pool tube, bringing enhanced safety and security to all pooling and testing applications. Every single liquid arrival or dispensation is documented, leaving users completely confident that the appropriate amount of liquid has been pipetted from each sample into the pool.

The Te-PoolSafe runs on Logic and Freedom EVOware® software and can be easily integrated with all existing Freedom EVO® and Genesis liquid handling platforms at low cost and with minimal effort. The module’s extremely high sensitivity, combined with its ability to make very rapid measurements, makes it an important addition to every blood and NAT laboratory to increase process safety.

Te-PoolSafe is not available in North America
