Cavro® Air Displacement Pipettor (ADP)
A compact pipetting solution for OEM instrumentation
Using pneumatic technology in a Tecan Cavro product for the first time, the new Cavro Air Displacement Pipettor (ADP) is a compact, pneumatic pipetting solution for easy integration and exceptional liquid handling performance.
Fully programmable pneumatic pipetting
The Cavro ADP is a fully programmable pneumatic pipetting module that uses air rather than liquid displacement to aspirate and dispense fluids. The slender design allows the Cavro ADP to be mounted in automated applications with narrow 18 mm spacing between devices. The Cavro ADP is compatible with Tecan’s high quality disposable tips (DiTis) for situations where washing tips between samples is ineffective or impractical.
Excellent pipetting performance
Pipetting performance is comparable to advanced manual pipettors, using a range of disposable tip sizes. The Cavro ADP is factory calibrated to ensure the most accurate air displacement and to minimize pump to pump variability. The pipettor’s validated design will simplify your development project, while its excellent reliability will ensure uninterrupted operation of your instrument.
The maintenance-free design of the Cavro ADP represents a cost effective, compact automated pipetting solution to simplify system integration. The pneumatic pipetting mechanism includes onboard liquid level detection and diagnostics to monitor correct operation. The Cavro ADP can be integrated with any z-axis to fit your system architecture.
Simplified instrument validation
One way to simplify validation of your instruments is to use OEM components that have already been extensively tested and validated. Tecan Cavro brand components are all designed under ISO13485 and ISO9001 QSR requirements, as well as national and regional compliance, such as Europe’s 2006 RoHS Directive or the US FDA’s QS regulations.
