Jul 23 2020 Read 924 Times
Tecan is pleased to announce that it has entered into a collaboration with leading smart lab provider Labforward. Labforward introduces Well Plate Templates and the Tecan Connector App add-ons for their Labfolder electronic lab notebook software that offers connectivity with Tecan microplate readers.
Laboratories increasingly require an easy-to-use solution that integrates lab equipment into the larger workflow, with access to key instrument functionality and electronic data capture. Well Plate Templates integrates with SparkControl Magellan™ and Magellan™ Pro to provide a straightforward user interface for control of Tecan microplate readers and electronic data capture into Labfolder. This versatile app allows operators to design multi-well experiments, document sample preparation steps and execute detection protocols, as well as recording and managing the experimental data.
Sandro Palumbo, Director Detection at Tecan, said: “We are delighted to work with Labforward to integrate our Magellan software with the new Well Plate Templates app. It provides the connectivity our customers need via a simplified interface, giving them seamless control over the operation of their laboratory plate readers as part of a broader lab workflow, from planning to execution.”
Simon Bungers, CEO and co-founder of Labforward, commented: “When we decided to extend the functionality of Labfolder, we looked for a partner that had an excellent reputation in the field and shared our philosophy in terms of openness; Tecan fitted the bill perfectly.” Florian Hauer, CPO and co-founder, added: “Tecan has a modern outlook, and understands the need for an independent platform that connects to different datasets from various devices. We look forward to further collaboration in the future.”
