Biotech and other life scientists who work with cell-based assays now have available a new line of advanced automated sample and liquid handling platforms.

Tecan (Männedorf, Switzerland) has introduced the Fluent laboratory automation solution, the latest addition to its laboratory automation portfolio.

The Fluent system is available in three sizes—offering deck capacities from 30 to 72 microplates—to suit the throughput requirements of almost any laboratory. The instrument boasts a built-in touchscreen interface that guides users through every task, making even the most sophisticated cell-based assays easy to run. Fluent’s three, task-specific robotic arms work in parallel for faster processing, and offer automated lid handling to maintain sterility and minimize evaporation.

The Fluent platform was designed for integration with a variety of cell biology devices. This allows the user to control every step of the workflow, including storage, transfer, manipulation, and measurement of cellular samples on a single instrument.

The Tecan HydroSpeed plate washer features extra-gentle wash settings that can be adjusted to suit specific cells, microplates, and applications, ensuring reproducible results even with weakly adherent cells.

“Today’s research landscape looks different from yesterday’s, with customers wanting systems that are faster, more versatile, and more cost efficient,” said Dr. Stefan Traeger, head of life sciences business at Tecan. “The Fluent laboratory automation solution has initially been developed to address the needs of cell biology laboratories as they move towards greater miniaturization and higher throughput assays, and our test sites and assay partners have been impressed by its speed and capabilities for automating even complex cell-based assays.”
