Tecan unveils Fluent™ laboratory automation solutions

Tecan has introduced the Fluent™ laboratory automation solution, the latest addition to its world-class laboratory automation portfolio. Fluent is a unique automation concept built around the application-specific needs of laboratories, delivering more capacity and greater speed. Initially focused on meeting the needs of cell biology workflows, Fluent is designed to offer end-to-end automation of cell-based and biochemical assay protocols, providing exceptional simplicity, productivity and confidence for the automation of experiments.

Fluent provides high precision, superior throughput and extended walkaway time, making it easier to get more done, more confidently. Completely new from the ground up, it is available in three sizes – offering deck capacities from 30 to 72 microplates – to suit the throughput requirements of almost any laboratory. It simplifies cell-based workflows by allowing flexible integration of all the complementary devices required – including incubators, washers and readers – into a single, fully automated system. Even complex assays can be automated using the platform’s intuitive FluentControl™ software and built-in touchscreen interface, freeing researchers to focus on what really matters – the results... -> http://buff.ly/1jD3KyP

HP D300 offers speed and reliability for drug titrations at GSK

GlaxoSmithKline’s quest for improved anti-malarial treatments has been revolutionized by the speed and reliability of the HP D300 Digital Dispenser. The system – distributed by Tecan – has enabled scientists working at GSK’s Malaria Discovery Performance Unit (DPU) in Tres Cantos, Spain, to increase throughput for standard drug titrations and to test additional combinations of candidate compounds. Dr Laura Sanz, an investigator in the Malaria DPU’s Biochemistry and Parasitology Department, explained: “We have been working with the HP D300 since autumn 2012, and it has significantly increased our sample throughput. Plates can be prepared more rapidly and, consequently, compound evaluation can be initiated earlier. This allows new experiments to be started sooner, increasing the rate at which a project progresses. It also saves a great deal of hands-on time and frees staff to undertake other laboratory activities.”

Monitor cytotoxicity kinetically and confirm biologic MOA in a gas-controlled plate reader

In this webinar, we demonstrate the performance of two cell-based assays using an environmentally-controlled microplate reader. A real-time cytotoxicity assay (CellTox™ Green Cytotoxicity Assay) and an ADCC assay (ADCC Reporter Bioassay) from Promega were performed on an Tecan Infinite® M200 PRO with Gas Control Module (GCM™).

The Infinite M200 PRO is a modular, flexible multimode reader and, equipped with the GCM, it allows simultaneous control of both CO2 and O2 within the measurement chamber, providing a cost-efficient alternative to a standard cell culture incubator. Combined with remote monitoring using Tecan’s new CNS (Common Notification System) software, the Infinite reader and GCM offer exceptional ease of use and greater productivity for long-term cell-based kinetic assays.

Monitoring the quality of beer with Tecan’s Infinite® M200 PRO

"The 2013 Jugend Innovativ competition saw Tecan collaborating with HLFS Ursprung and the Stiegl brewery to optimize the HybriScan™D Beer assay (Sigma-Aldrich) for the quality control of beer on an Infinite® M200 PRO multimode reader. Bernhard Stehrer, a science teacher at HLFS Ursprung, explained: “Students voluntarily participate in the prestigious Jugend Innovativ competition during their leisure time, and decided to investigate the science behind the quality control of beer. Stiegl provided samples for analysis and showed us the methods used in its laboratory, which involve assessment of cultures under a microscope...
