Next Generation Automated Liquid Handling Platform Unveiled

Nov 22 2019 Read 480 Times

Tecan unveiled its new Cavro® Magni Flex OEM robotic liquid handling instrument development platform at this year’s AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo. This modular and scalable solution is intended for low to medium throughput workflows, offering the flexibility and functionality to quickly and easily create innovative automation systems for virtually any life sciences application, from immunoassay processing to molecular diagnostics.

The Cavro Magni Flex provides the core robotic architecture for the development of complete automation solutions, with a highly configurable workdeck designed to accommodate a wide range of labware formats and devices to meet specific workflow requirements. A variety of carriers, cutouts and custom grids are available to create any number of layouts, and the system is available with a choice of two, four or eight independent pipetting channels. The platform’s liquid handling arm offers variable tip spacing capabilities - to suit different labware types and enable reformatting activities - and can act as both a pipettor and gripper, optimising use of the available space.

The Cavro Magni Flex takes advantage of the exceptional quality and robustness of the Tecan Cavro range of OEM liquid handling components to provide a comprehensive, modular liquid handling framework that allows seamless integration into any system. Supplied with Tecan’s MAPlinx™ development software kit - which includes high level functional commands for straightforward programming, a worktable editor with virtual library and drag-and-drop features, and a 3D simulator to simplify software testing - the Cavro Magni Flex aims to accelerate instrument development and time to market.

Joe Rotter, Vice President, Global Marketing for Life Science Components at Tecan, commented: “The Cavro Magni Flex is designed to stay ahead of the ever changing needs of our partners and the evolving market. It offers advanced software development capabilities and exceptional design flexibility to provide easy access to liquid handling automation for faster instrument development. In the future, it will enable customers to monitor their install base remotely, for superior performance monitoring and implementation of productivity enhancements.”

To learn more about Tecan’s Magni Flex wisit the website or contact your local Tecan representative about a Lunch & Learn session, where a Tecan team of experts will bring lunch and Tecan Cavro components - including the Cavro Magni Flex - to your site, providing the opportunity to interact with the platform and discuss your project in detail.
