Tecan Offers Dual Z Arm for Cavro® Omni Robot

Dual Z arm provides exceptional flexibility for OEM liquid handling applications.

Tecan has introduced a Dual Z arm for the popular Cavro® Omni Robot. Available with a broad choice of lengths, orientations and options for all three axes, the Cavro Omni Robot is designed to combine precision OEM liquid handling with straightforward integration, and the launch of the Dual Z option provides instrument designers with even greater flexibility.

The Dual Z option offers two independent pipetting channels in a single housing, doubling the robot’s liquid handling capacity without having to mount an additional arm.

This compact unit can be fitted with either fixed probes or disposable tip adapters on each Z-axis, or a combination of both, with integrated capacitive liquid level detection (cLLD) and a manually adjustable pitch which can be set at 9 or 18 mm between channels.

This elegant solution offers several potential advantages - especially where space is an issue - allowing instrument developers to increase throughput or perform additional operations without compromising on performance.

For example, by fitting the Dual Z option with one fixed tip and one disposable tip adapter, it is possible to use the fixed probe for bulk reagent dispensing and disposable tips to pipette samples, avoiding the risk of cross-contamination while saving on consumables costs.

The Dual Z arm further extends the versatility of the Cavro Omni Robot and, together with the system’s extensive choice of options and finishes, provides exceptional flexibility for OEM liquid handling applications.
