Tecan Labwerx

Labwerx_Logo_and_Claim

When you need an automation solution beyond the ordinary, Tecan Labwerx delivers a customized, comprehensive and productive solution.

Automation to meet extra-ordinary lab needs.

The speed of change is high in life science research, frequently outpacing the lab industry’s product development. Tecan Labwerx creates custom solutions to address the ever-changing needs of the market.

At Tecan, automation and robotic systems integration is in our DNA. Our multidisciplinary team of life scientists, engineers and software experts has been creating custom automation solutions for over 20 years.

Customized, Comprehensive, Productive

Labwerx Instrument

Our name is new, but our business is not. Since 1996, we have delivered over 1,000 projects – from simple modified workstations to large-scale robotic integrations. Today, Tecan Labwerx is a complete unit with all the expertise necessary to manage a project, from design and implementation to road testing our solutions with the same reagents and applications that you will use in your lab.

Success isn’t built on ambition alone. It takes a comprehensive and mutual understanding of the end goals. Tecan Labwerx digs deep to build a detailed picture of what we need to do to achieve your intended solution.

We then translate your goals into productive and robust automation solutions that do exactly what you need them to do, working collaboratively with you to deliver to the highest standards – on specification, on time, and on budget. Each project is professionally managed and developed using a fully documented, quality-assured process, with a comprehensive project plan that gives you complete transparency. 

Tecan Labwerx.
Translating ambition to reality.

We translate your ambitions into reality

With its wealth of experience and know-how, our team of project leaders, hardware and software engineers and liquid handling experts pushes back boundaries and sparks new thinking.

From your original idea to acceptance testing of your automation solution in your lab, we progress through four phases, always in close collaboration with you.

Investigate

Every successful project rests on sound investigation. We start by listening closely to you, challenging your assumptions and digging deep to make sure we fully understand your needs, ambitions, constraints and concerns. The outcome is a detailed list of requirements for your project.

Ideate

With your requirements in hand, we begin the exciting ideation phase. Drawing on years of experience, our project leaders, engineers and software specialists brainstorm and generate many potential solutions, which we filter and refine into a leading concept. We take this concept through repeated iterations, with your continual input, until it is transformed into an optimal solution with concrete specifications.

Invent

When your project entails innovative new protocols, the ideal solution can’t be built from standard components. That doesn’t stop our teams from getting the job done. We invent the tools needed to turn your ambitions into a reality – whether that means creating new software, a novel module or even an entirely new process.

Integrate

We bring your solution to life by seamlessly pulling together the invented elements, Tecan standard and third-party components, and application protocols. After thorough testing, we carry out a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) with you to ensure that the agreed specifications have been achieved. Finally, a Site Acceptance Test (SAT) in your facility provides evidence that the system meets every requirement, and that your vision has been realized.

Our Products

Workflow automation

After gaining a comprehensive understanding of your workflow, Tecan Labwerx designs a bespoke solution to realize your requirements.

This can be orchestrated across multiple robotic devices and instrument platforms, and use scheduling and event control software.

Customized components

Our customized components can range from active devices, such as a tube decapper, to static components like adapter plates, carriers and electronic boards.

We have an extensive library of these components, developed over many years, and can also design new components to fit your unique challenge.

Tecan instrument modifications

Tecan Labwerx’s engineering team can modify Tecan’s industry-leading liquid handling platforms to meet your workflow requirements.

From worktable adaptions to liquid handling arm modifications, we take the platforms beyond the standard capabilities.

Recent project highlights

Our comprehensive technical capabilities range from the design and manufacturing of modified workstations, invention of novel devices and creation of new software to the development of large-scale robotic integrations. We lead the way by automating analysis and development methods that are beyond the ordinary. Here are a few examples.

NMR sample preparation

Barcode reading, pipetting, capping, de-capping, ultrasonic cleaning, centrifugation and more.

Bacterial engineering

Complete workflow in 50 ml conical tubes with capper/de-capper and tumble mixer.

Advanced bioprocessing

Liquid handling arm travelling beyond the edge of the worktable.

Building blocks for adaptive workflows

Creating your ideal solution depends on solving the individual steps in the process. Each step can require a different functionality, which must be seamlessly integrated into the workflow. Tecan Labwerx helps you map the options, some of which are presented below.

Tubes and Vials

Transport   Agitate
Read barcode   Heat/cool
Cap / decap   Centrifugate
Crimp   Detect layers’ interface
Weigh    

Plates and Microtubes

Transport   Agitate
Read barcode   Heat/cool
Seal / unseal   Centrifugate
Lid /unlid   Stack
Weigh    

A deciding factor in choosing Tecan was its ability to deliver what no other company on the market could: precise sampling and dosing on a moving microplate. Read more
