Tecan offers Cavro® Air Displacement Pipettor option for Cavro Omni Robot

January 28, 2014 - Tecan has introduced a Cavro® ADP (Air Displacement Pipettor) module for the popular Cavro Omni Robot. Available with a broad choice of lengths, orientations and options for all three axes, the Cavro Omni Robot is designed to combine precision OEM liquid handling with straightforward integration, and the launch of the Cavro ADP option provides even greater flexibility in instrument design.

The Cavro ADP provides an alternative to the existing liquid displacement pipetting for any application using the Cavro Omni Robot. Using pneumatic technology, this compact pipetting module has been integrated and optimized for use with the Cavro Omni Robot’s Universal Z arm, offering a number of additional benefits for OEM liquid handling. Its validated, maintenance-free design simplifies system integration, with onboard pressure-­based liquid level detection (pLLD) and diagnostics to monitor correct operation. Together with the Cavro Omni Robot’s standard capacitive liquid level detection (cLLD), these functions provide exceptional pipetting performance and enhanced process security. As a self-contained, fully programmable pipetting option, the Cavro ADP is ideally suited to applications where access is restricted, and the module’s integrated tip ejection option makes it possible for the Cavro Omni Robot to perform fully automated tip re-racking for the first time. The availability of this flexible pipetting module further extends the versatility of the Cavro Omni Robot and, together with the system’s extensive choice of options and finishes, provides exceptional flexibility for OEM liquid handling applications.
