  • Tecan has launched a fully automated affinity purification solution for the extraction of large biomolecules, such as proteins, antibodies and antibody-drug conjugates. This set-up takes advantage of the new Thermo Scientific™ MSIA™ Streptavidin EVO microcolumns, which have been specifically designed for use on Tecan’s proven Freedom EVO® platform. In combination with the Freedom EVO workstation, this solution is ideal for high throughput applications in biopharmaceutical development, clinical research and anti-doping laboratories.

    Housed within a pipette tip, the proprietary MSIA microcolumns are densely coated with streptavidin for affinity purification using any biotinylated ligand, even at low concentrations. Compared to traditional resin- and bead-based methods, this new approach offers improved analytical sensitivity and lower background noise, while the automated workflow enables easier method standardization and transfer between labs. This allows multi-analyte characterization over a wide dynamic range of three orders of magnitude, while maintaining good reproducibility of <5 %CV*.

    Preeti Saini, Product Manager for MSIA liquid handling consumables at Thermo Fisher Scientific, commented: “This new offering is an ideal solution for biologics and biosimilars discovery and development, and it is particularly well suited to sports anti-doping and other fields where laboratories perform large molecule bioanalyses that demand high quality, reproducible and unambiguous results with minimal background noise. Moreover, this solution is designed to help scientists save both precious samples and time.”

    “Our combined solution will provide these laboratories with faster assay development, scalable sample turnover and surety of data quality and consistency,” added Rohit Shroff, Product Manager for Tecan. “By combining our well-established Freedom EVO workstations with MSIA technology, we can better cater to the high volume bioanalytical research market.”

  • Männedorf, Switzerland, April 28, 2016 –Tecan has unveiled a novel solution to help laboratories meet the stringent requirements of regulatory authorities such as the FDA and the EMEA. The new MultiCheck™ QC package for Spark® 10M and Spark 20M multimode readers comprises a reusable QC plate and accompanying data analysis software, and is designed to aid laboratories striving to fulfill increasingly strict regulatory demands including GLP, GMP, ISO 9001, ISO 13485 or Title 21 CFR Part 11.

    Enabling verification of the correct functionality of all major components and key measurement modes over time, the new MultiCheck QC package for Spark readers allows complete Installation Qualification and Operational Qualification (IQOQ) of the reader in a single step. For fast, simple operation, the MultiCheck plate uses solid samples, eliminating tedious preparation and pipetting of test liquids. The plate’s absorbance reference is also traceable to NIST, ensuring the highest level of quality control. The powerful MultiCheck software guides the user through the entire process, documenting the operator identity, QC plate and reader serial numbers for audit purposes. All QC measurements performed using the Spark reader are rapidly analyzed, with detailed results for each test parameter documented in a comprehensive report.

  • Männedorf, Switzerland, January 25, 2016 –Tecan has launched the Spark® 20M multimode microplate reader*, offering tailor-made solutions to suit virtually any drug discovery or advanced life science research application. This freely configurable system gives researchers access to new techniques and features intended to enhance and streamline biochemical and cell-based workflows. At the heart of the instrument are Spark’s unique Fusion Optics and a powerful, high frequency xenon flash lamp, which can be combined with your choice of high performance detection modules to ensure a perfect match for your workflow. Options include an enhanced fluorescence module designed to improve sensitivity and increase the speed of high throughput screening, and the newly developed Te-Cool™ cooling module that uniquely allows the measurement chamber temperature to be set below the ambient room temperature for more accurate and reliable results.

    The Spark 20M’s cell handling capabilities have also been extended, with a new automated cell imaging and confluence measurement feature. This allows incubation and monitoring of cell culture microplates within the measurement chamber, enabling the user to define the confluence at which the assay starts/ends or the substrate is injected, for optimal assay results and greater walkaway operation. These new options – combined with the ability to read 6- to 1,536-well microplates – ensure there is a Spark 20M configuration to increase the productivity of your lab, both today and in the future.

  • Männedorf, Switzerland, June 30, 2015 – Tecan has introduced the D300e Digital Dispenser* for applications that need faster, reliable dispensing down to picoliter volumes. This innovative, simple-to-use device is ideal for the creation of assay plates, and can cut set-up times from hours or days to just minutes. Users can choose between dispensing aqueous solutions in combination with a surfactant – for the investigation of proteins, antibodies, enzymes and nucleic acids – and DMSO, for small molecule studies, offering greater flexibility for life sciences workflows.

    The system’s sophisticated yet simple software guides you through every operation, minimizing training times and problem-solving call-outs, and providing straightforward set-up of enzyme profiles, dose-response curves and synergy studies. Even the most complex experimental plate layouts – such as drug-drug interaction studies – can be quickly and easily generated, with optional randomization to reduce the impact of edge effects and increase data integrity. The D300e is compatible with a wide range of microplate formats from 12 to 1,536 wells, including deep-well plates and, for maximum flexibility, can even accommodate SBS-format tube racks.
