German company has incorporated a Cavro Omni Robot and Cavro XLP Pump into its latest FREESTYLE sample preparation workstation.

German company LCTech GmbH has been using Tecan Cavro® components for many years and has incorporated a Cavro Omni Robot and Cavro XLP Pump into its latest FREESTYLE sample preparation workstation.

Dr Uwe Aulwurm, a Managing Director of LCTech, explained: “To meet the varied workflow demands of our customers, we wanted a modular solution that combined a general purpose liquid handling system with a range of different processing devices, including options for solid phase extraction, gel permeation chromatography and evaporation. The Cavro Omni Robot was perfectly suited to our needs, providing a very robust instrument which could be easily modified to access individual processing modules.”

“Tecan Cavro components have allowed us to develop the FREESTYLE system to closely match the needs of our customers, which can vary significantly from day to day. Liquid handling is performed by a single Cavro XLP Pump, which is well matched to the needs of our customers in terms of liquid handling performance and long-term stability, and uses Cavro ceramic valves to ensure solvent compatibility. This set-up provides very consistent operation and maximum flexibility for our customers’ applications, and the seamless firmware and software compatibility with the Cavro Omni Robot made it the logical choice. The platform is already in routine operation with several customers, who really appreciate the different options offered by this compact and easy-to-use XYZ robotic system.”
