Faster liquid handling for OEM applications

Tecan has launched the Cavro Omni Flex to make it quicker and easier for manufacturers to develop instruments for advanced liquid handling applications. The Cavro Omni Flex is claimed to extend the flexibility and convenience of the Cavro Omni Robot by offering more hardware options to complement its precision pipetting, including frames, worktables, power and input/output management, racks, pumps and other options required to perform liquid handling tasks.

Rapid development and testing are crucial to achieve the shortest possible time-to-market, and Tecan has designed the Cavro Omni Flex to simplify prototyping, method development and regulatory approval. This modular system is said to allow virtually any combination of axes, pipetting modules, pumps and worktable options, with a range of additional options – such as skins, shields, sensors, locks and carriers – to suit the needs of individual instrument designs and applications.

Using UL-recognised components and developed with RoHS and FDA criteria in mind, the Cavro Omni Flex is designed to streamline and simplify regulatory approval for laboratory and diagnostic instrumentation.
