Tecan Launches Cavro® ADP - a New Innovation for Liquid Handling
Product News Feb 15, 2011
Tecan has announced the launch of the new Cavro Air Displacement Pipettor (ADP), a compact, pneumatic pipetting solution for easy integration and exceptional liquid handling performance. The Cavro ADP is a fully programmable, pneumatic pipetting module designed for integration into instruments requiring minimal maintenance or where space is at a premium.
Using pneumatic technology in a Tecan Cavro product for the first time, this innovative module gives you an automated pipetting solution that is smaller than ever before, using air displacement to aspirate and dispense fluids. Correct operation is monitored by onboard pressure-based liquid level detection and self-diagnostics.
The Cavro ADP offers excellent pipetting performance from 1-1,000 µl, using a range of Tecan’s high quality disposable tips, and an integrated tip ejector allows tips to be ejected by a simple command. The Cavro ADP’s tip sensor can determine if a disposable tip has not been correctly picked up, or has fallen off the probe, flagging and logging errors to increase process security and aid validation of customer instrumentation, particularly for diagnostic applications.
