Phase Separator™ on Fluent® Liquid Handling Platform
Phase Separator™ is a unique new pipetting capability of the new Air Flexible Channel Arm™ (Air FCA) on Tecan’s Fluent® Automation Workstation. It addresses the critical challenge of detecting liquid–liquid interfaces and effectively separating neighboring phases, while avoiding the risk of contamination making it ideal for separating plasma in centrifuged blood samples.
Automation helps ensure consistent results, part of enabling faster, more precise analysis. Regardless of your operation’s size, Phase Separator stands up to the task, giving labs the throughput they need while handling samples regardless of label positioning.
