Tecan offers 5 ml disposable tips for LiHa arm

Tecan offers 5 ml disposable tips for LiHa arm

Männedorf, Switzerland, November 8, 2011 – Tecan has further extended the flexibility of its versatile Freedom EVO® platform with the launch of a 5 ml disposable tip for the liquid handling (LiHa) arm. Previously only available to Tecan customers working with fixed tips, the unrivalled pipetting volume range offered by the LiHa arm can now be exploited by customers that require the highest levels of sample security.


The new 5 ml LiHa disposable tips are available in either filtered or non-filtered options in Tecan Pure format, and are ideally suited to a wide range of applications in the pharmaceutical, academic and clinical sectors. The new tips can be used with existing LiHa arms, requiring only minor hardware modifications, and allow customers to take advantage of the complete range of LiHa disposable tips – from 10 µl to 5 ml volume sizes – using a single pipetting arm. This offers maximum throughput and flexibility for applications such as biobanking, large volume extractions and veterinary, food and clinical testing, allowing bulk liquid transfers to be rapidly performed without additional pipetting hardware.
