Tecan increases application flexibility for genomics

Tecan’s redesigned disposable tips offer improved flexibility and walkaway times.

Männedorf, Switzerland, August 30, 2016
–Tecan has increased application flexibility and walkaway times for genomics workflows. The launch of a new generation of 10 μl LiHa disposable tips will improve labware access on Fluent® and Freedom EVO® workstations, as well as offering more options for on-deck tip storage.

The redesigned, 10 μl tips are 3.6 mm longer and have been developed to improve access to PCR plates and common 384-well microplate formats, helping to minimize dead volumes and waste of precious samples and reagents. Ideal for genomics applications – such as next generation sequencing and human identification (HID) – the tips are available in both Tecan Pure and Tecan Sterile purity levels, with a choice of both filtered and non-filtered options. The new tips are available in both standard trays and SLAS formats, offering users more choice in terms of deck set-up and storage options, and nested options, maximizing on-deck capacities and walkaway times.

Severin Heynen, product manager for consumables at Tecan, commented: “This completely redesigned tip is optimized for genomics workflows and other applications requiring high throughput and accurate low volume pipetting. Offering sterile tip purity and a range of storage options gives our customers even more choice in how they automate their protocols, helping to streamline laboratory workflows and maximize the return on their investment in our liquid handling solutions.”
