16 October 2012 - The state-of-the-art Cavro Centris Pump from Tecan is now available with a range of glass syringes and plastic valves to complement the existing portfolio of long-life ceramic components. These new options provide customers with a greater choice of materials to suit their instrument design, bringing the advanced features of the Cavro Centris Pump to a wider range of precision liquid handling applications.
The Cavro Centris Pump is a compact, UL-recognized syringe pump module for use in OEM laboratory instruments. Offering exceptional liquid handling characteristics – with flow rates from 5 nl/s up to 5 ml/s – it sets new industry standards for accuracy, reliability and precision. A hallmark of the Cavro Centris Pump is its elegant and robust drive mechanism, offering a broad dynamic range from a single syringe size. The advantages of this innovative design are now available to customers wishing to use cost-effective glass syringe and plastic valve options. Already widely used throughout the Tecan Cavro component range, these high quality glass and plastic components retain the premium performance benefits of the Cavro Centris Pump, while reducing the installed cost for applications which do not require the exceptional durability offered by a ceramic fluid path. Now, more than ever, you can truly tailor your Cavro Centris Pump to your instrument and application requirements.
