Tecan offers a range of laboratory automation solutions for mass spectrometry (MS) sample preparation, ensuring there is a system to meet workflow and throughput needs.
From solid phase extraction and liquid-liquid extraction to protein precipitation and straightforward ‘dilute and shoot’ methods, the company provides automation of routine sample preparation applications, helping to alleviate major bottlenecks for many laboratories.
Recent advances in MS instrumentation have made it the technology of choice for an increasing number of laboratories.
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 handson time and increasing throughput.
Tecan systems range from straightforward ‘pipette and shake’ sample extraction using the recently launched AC Extraction Plate, to walkaway automation with a modular Freedom EVO workstation.
Stefan Traeger, head of Tecan’s Life Sciences business, said: “We are committed to helping our MS customers maximise 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.”
