Tecan unveils Fluent™ Laboratory Automation Solutions

The Fluent workstation provides end-to-end automation for cell-based assays

Männedorf, Switzerland, June 24, 2014 – Tecan has introduced the Fluent™ Laboratory Automation Solutions, the latest addition to its world-class laboratory automation portfolio. Fluent is a unique automation concept built around the application-specific needs of laboratories, delivering more capacity and greater speed. Initially focused on meeting the needs of cell biology workflows, Fluent is designed to offer end-to-end automation of cell-based and biochemical assay protocols, providing exceptional simplicity, productivity and confidence for the automation of experiments.

Fluent provides high precision, superior throughput and extended walkaway time, making it easier to get more done, more confidently. Completely new from the ground up, it is available in three sizes – offering deck capacities from 30 to 72 microplates – to suit the throughput requirements of almost any laboratory. It simplifies cell-based workflows by allowing flexible integration of all the complementary devices required – including incubators, washers and readers – into a single, fully automated system. Even complex assays can be automated using the platform’s intuitive FluentControl™ software and built-in touchscreen interface, freeing researchers to focus on what really matters – the results.

“Today’s research landscape looks different from yesterday’s, with customers wanting systems that are faster, more versatile and more cost efficient,” commented Dr Stefan Traeger, Executive VP and Head of the Tecan Life Sciences Business. “The Fluent laboratory automation solution has initially been developed to address the needs of cell biology laboratories as they move towards greater miniaturization and higher throughput assays, and our test sites and assay partners have been impressed by its speed and capabilities for automating even complex cell-based assays.”
