Tecan uses ARTEL technology to verify liquid handling performance

Tecan uses ARTEL technology to verify liquid handling performance  

Tecan, a leading global player in liquid handling automation technology in the life sciences industry, has joined forces with ARTEL, the world expert in liquid handling quality assurance, to provide Tecan’s US customers with a new service for verifying the performance of Tecan liquid handling platforms. The ARTEL MVS® Multichannel Verification System will be used to check the precision of Tecan’s liquid handling platforms at the request of the customer.


The ARTEL MVS uses ARTEL’s proprietary Ratiometric Photometry™ technology to verify the volume transfer performance of liquid handling systems of up to 384 channels, helping to improve liquid handling quality and increase confidence in assay results. This solution will allow our customers to meet quality requirements, minimize unplanned downtime and provide additional assurance of optimal system performance.

For further information, please contact the Tecan US helpdesk at: helpdesk-US@tecan.com or 1-800-TECAN US.
