Tecan’s new MCA 384 Disposable Tips offer enhanced pipetting flexibility

Männedorf, Switzerland, September 27, 2011 – Tecan has launched a new generation of high quality MCA 384 Disposable Tips designed to optimize the performance and reliability of the versatile MultiChannel Arm™ (MCA) 384 pipetting option on Freedom EVO® workstations. The all new range of MCA 384 Disposable Tips has been extended to include a 15 µl tip size alongside the existing 50 µl and 125 µl sizes, providing high quality, reliable pipetting across a broad volume range.


All MCA 384 Disposable Tips are now available in Tecan’s enhanced Tecan Pure and Tecan Sterile purity levels, with filtered versions of Tecan Sterile tips also available in all sizes.
