Tecan Develops new OEM Liquid Handling Robot
Product News Aug 25, 2008
Tecan has developed the new Cavro® Omni Robot, a general purpose OEM liquid handling robot for a wide range of applications within clinical diagnostics, life sciences and analytical chemistry.
Tecan also supplies the Cavro Integration Kit, providing all necessary items to evaluate any Tecan Cavro component straight out of the box.
The Cavro Omni Robot is designed to offer the same reliability that is characteristic of all Tecan Cavro products. The robot is designed to be both easy to install and to operate, and its design allows the Cavro Omni Robot to be configured for many different customer needs.
The robot’s closed-loop positioning system provides assurance of knowing exactly where the pipetting probe is located at all times, while its high payload opens up a range of capabilities for automation solutions. The Cavro Omni Robot is encased so that all working parts are hidden to provide a finished professional appearance, the company says.
Using the Cavro Integration Kit, any Tecan Cavro pump or robot can be set up for evaluation in a matter of minutes. The Cavro Fusion Software included in the Cavro Integration Kit automatically recognizes the device, and pumps and robots can even be operated simultaneously via a graphical user interface.
Tecan Cavro OEM components are designed and manufactured to meet ISO 13485 requirements and Europe’s 2006 RoHS directive.
