Fluent highlights

More functionality and flexibility in less space

More functionality and flexibility in less space

Industry-leading deck capacity offers high-density plate and tip storage in a small footprint. Unique, interchangeable design allows the modular worktable to be easily configured and reconfigured for plate reformatting, hit picking, tube-to-plate transfers, plate stamping and more.

Optimize performance with the industry’s most versatile Multiple Channel Arm

Optimize performance with the industry’s most versatile Multiple Channel Arm

Adjusts to 96, 384 and 1536 plate formats on the fly by swapping between 96- and 384-channel adapters. Makes it easy to optimize the performance of plate reformatting, stamping and diluting.

Flexible Channel Arm with fixed, steel tips broadens pipetting capabilities

Flexible Channel Arm with fixed, steel tips broadens pipetting capabilities

Washable fixed tips made of coated steel offer reliable septa piercing and expand the instrument’s wide dynamic range down to below 0.5µl. The Flexible Channel Arm is also compatible with Tecan’s disposable tips to suit the requirements of different applications.

DMSO as system liquid for fast dilutions

DMSO as system liquid for fast dilutions

Fixed tips can be primed for fast, automated compound dilutions or pre-filling of dilution plates. The steel tips can be washed from inside for ultimate system cleanliness and more reliable results.

Device integration for fully automated workflows

Device integration for fully automated workflows

Seamlessly integrates with a broad range of complementary peripherals including 2D and plate barcode readers, high-density plate and tip stackers, plate sealers, and random access carousels. Run every step of your workflow on a single instrument for greater ease, convenience and productivity.

Robotic Gripper Arm for versatile tube or plate handling

Robotic Gripper Arm for versatile tube or plate handling

Smoothly and quickly delivers labware—including plates and tubes—to the instrument’s pipetting arms and integrated devices without interrupting the pipetting process. Provides fast lid removal and replacement to minimize evaporation for reliable, reproducible results.

Exceptional ease of use

Exceptional ease of use

Built-in touchscreen interface guides users through daily tasks for fast, consistent, efficient operation. Customizable to suit specific users or applications, the software makes it easier than ever to generate reliable results while increasing throughput and productivity.

3D simulation for safe runs and compound conservation

3D simulation for safe runs and compound conservation

Eases development of new assays and enables you to visualize a program, test new assays without using reagents or consumables, and estimate timing accurately and precisely.

Easy programming and operation

Easy programming and operation

FluentControl™ software simplifies even the most challenging applications. Use drag & drop interfaces, 3D graphics, and single smart commands to distribute reagents or transfer samples.

Worklisting for greater speed and efficiency

Worklisting for greater speed and efficiency

Create everything from pipetting steps to hit picking processes in an Excel or text file and then run them with FluentControl software.

Enhanced process security

Enhanced process security

Integrated user management controls method permissions. Operators can even set personalized favorites on the touchscreen.

Powerful liquid handling

Powerful liquid handling

FluentControl offers robust default liquid definitions and makes it easy to change parameters for any fluid.

Extend the boundaries or automation
