Tecan offers a wide range of laboratory automation solutions for mass spectrometry (MS) sample preparation, ensuring there is a system to meet your workflow and throughput needs. From solid phase extraction and liquid-liquid extraction to protein precipitation and straightforward 'dilute and shoot' methods, Tecan provides seamless automation of routine sample preparation applications, helping to alleviate major bottlenecks for many laboratories.
Recent advances in MS instrumentation have led to an increasing number of laboratories choosing this technology for a wide range of applications. However, sample preparation techniques have not enjoyed the same rate of development, leading to processing bottlenecks and reducing overall productivity. Automation of routine sample preparation can alleviate these problems, reducing hands-on time and increasing throughput. With a broad base of MS customers in drug discovery, clinical, toxicological, food and environmental laboratories, Tecan is perfectly placed to deliver innovative automated sample preparation solutions for virtually any application.
Tecan offers an extensive range of systems and modules to match your laboratory workflow needs; from straightforward 'pipette and shake' sample extraction using the recently launched AC Extraction Plate™* to walkaway automation with a modular Freedom EVO® workstation. Dr Stefan Traeger, Head of Tecan's Life Sciences Business, commented: "We are committed to helping our MS customers maximize their laboratory output. Advanced process security and sample tracking options, together with user-oriented features such as the TouchTools™ graphical interface, are making safe and reliable automated sample preparation easier than ever before."
