New 50 µl disposable tip for Tecan liquid handling platforms
Product News Apr 11, 2008
Tecan has introduced the 50 µl volume size to its family of high quality, conductive disposable tips, complementing the existing size range of 10, 200 and 1,000 µl. The disposable tips have been custom-developed for Tecan’s automated liquid handling workstations, enhancing performance and minimizing cross-contamination in a broad range of genomics, forensics and ELISA-based applications.
The 50 µl tip’s precision and volume range (1.0 to 50 µl) is optimal for PCR set-up and DNA quantification and normalization, as well as for other small volume pipetting applications such as ELISAs. The unique geometry of the 50 µl tip makes it compatible with many different types of labware, including microplates, deep-well plates and sample tubes; it is also able to pierce septa. Its universal nose cone is designed for Tecan’s existing Freedom EVO® series of liquid handling instruments and, in particular, for the recently launched 8 Plus 1 Access™ liquid handling arm for biopharmaceutical research and the HID EVOlution™ platform for forensic applications.
Tecan’s disposable tips are produced and inspected to meet critical technical specifications, maintaining high standards of quality and reproducibility. Each tip is individually inspected and tested during manufacturing. The validated production process meets the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 13485.
