Tecan launches new range of disposable tips for 96-MultiChannel Arm™

New range of disposable tips for 96-MultiChannel Arm™  

Tecan’s SBS-format MCA™ 96 disposable tips offer a variety of pipetting solutions to complement the unrivalled flexibility of the 96-MultiChannel Arm option for Freedom EVO® automated liquid handling workstations. Catering to all liquid handling applications in life sciences – with sterile, non-sterile and filtered options – the new product design has been optimized for increased throughput and reliability to provide a cost-effective solution for laboratory scientists.


Non-filtered tips can be nested in either passive stacks on the deck (768 tips per SBS position), or externally in Te-Stack™ modules (3,840 tips per column). This improves throughput and walk-away time. The nested design also offers environmental and logistical benefits, such as reducing offline storage needs by 60%, lowering transport costs and minimizing wastage.

The new, fully SBS-compatible rack design does not require specialized labware carriers, and Te-Stack modules can use a single column format for tip racks and microplates. Systems currently set up for non-SBS disposable tips can easily be converted, and the new carriers offer additional benefits such as an optional waste slide for high throughput tip disposal.
