Tecan develops new, long-life OEM syringe pump


Tecan has launched the Cavro® Centris Pump, a compact, high precision OEM syringe pump for laboratory instruments, setting new standards for reliability, accuracy and precision. The new pump offers a broader working volume range from a single syringe size compared to other similar pumps, enabling users to do more with one pump than ever before.


The Cavro Centris Pump’s elegant, rigid mechanical design with fewer moving parts ensures reliability, while the fluidics components use precision-paired ceramic parts, resulting in almost no resistance or wear. The pump’s high efficiency stepper motor and mechanical drive allow excellent liquid handling performance at small volumes, yet still have the necessary speed and power to achieve high volume performance. The compact dimensions of the Cavro Centris Pump give it the smallest footprint of any OEM syringe pump. The new pump features increased on-board diagnostics, so the user can query the pump for its critical performance parameters.

For over 35 years, Tecan Cavro brand components have provided innovative and reliable liquid handling for instrument designers in almost any application. Tecan Cavro OEM components are designed and manufactured to high quality standards, meeting ISO 13485 requirements and Europe’s 2006 RoHS directive.
