Tecan develops new OEM liquid handling robot

Tecan Cavro Omni Robot and Integration kit  

Tecan has developed the innovative new Cavro® Omni Robot, a general purpose OEM liquid handling robot for a wide range of applications within clinical diagnostics, life sciences and analytical chemistry. Tecan also supplies the easy-to-use Cavro Integration Kit, providing all necessary items to evaluate any Tecan Cavro component straight out of the box.


The Cavro Omni Robot offers the same robustness and reliability that is characteristic of all Tecan Cavro products. The robot is designed to be both easy to install and to operate, and its unique modular design allows the Cavro Omni Robot to be configured for many different customer needs. The robot’s closed-loop positioning system provides assurance of knowing exactly where the pipetting probe is located at all times, while its high payload opens up a broad range of capabilities for automation solutions. The Cavro Omni Robot is encased so that all working parts are hidden to provide a finished professional appearance.

Using the Cavro Integration Kit, any Tecan Cavro pump or robot can be set up for evaluation in a matter of minutes. The Cavro Fusion Software included in the Cavro Integration Kit automatically recognizes the device, and pumps and robots can even be operated simultaneously via an intuitive graphical user interface. Tecan Cavro OEM components are designed and manufactured to high quality standards, meeting ISO 13485 requirements and Europe’s 2006 RoHS directive.
