  • Application Area: High-Throughput Multi-Well Plate Processing

"Tecan Hydrospeed(TM) enables high-throughput processing of 96- and 384- well plates. Overall it's a good apparatus for these tasks with reproducible performance, 4 liquid sources for plate washing and addition of reagents, and decent customization of each step in the protocol. Weaknesses are the large void volumes and reagent waste during the many priming steps."
