TriContinent is a leading manufacturer of precision liquid handling solutions that satisfy the needs for a wide range of applications for medical, life sciences and selected other industries. Our products provide the level of precision and accuracy required for the diagnostic and laboratory automation instruments. 

Our extensive portfolio includes syringe pumps, air displacement pipetting modules and liquid handling robots (XYZ). We are supported by a global production network through the United States, Europe and Asia that enables us for fast and flexible response to our customers’ needs. In addition to that we offer custom-engineered solutions to achieve the desired result in your automated liquid handling systems.

Liquid Handling (XYZ) Robots

The TriTon Liquid Handling (XYZ) Robot is a highly sensitive and reliable robotic liquid handler. Thanks to its accuracy and component quality it in the forefront of OEM XYZ robotic liquid handling modules available on the market. Capabilities include, but are not limited to, cap piercing, tube stripping, precision liquid-level detection (LLD), and the highest (XYZ) robotic motion resolution in the industry. 

Standard Features & Benefits:

  • Rigid Y-arm which eliminates need for space consuming gantry, providing expanded user access and improved septum (cap) piercing
  • Cap piercing force capability of over 10 lb
  • Full quadrature encoders provide high resolution error detection and "crash recovery" options
  • Long life flex cables on all axes eliminate need to replace cables

Selected Optional Features Include:

  • Single or dual Y-arm options 
  • Scalability of all axes
  • Electronics from fully loaded electronics/firmware to direct electro-mechanical interface CCU for Tecan® RSP Emulation
  • Additional devices (e.g., Syringe Pumps) can be added that communicate over two RS-485 busses
  • Fully adjustable liquid level detection with high degree of sensitivity (forget about isolation blocks or coax cables)
  • Tube stripper mechanism for cap piercing applications

Air-Z Air Displacement Pipette Pump Series

TriContinent Air-Z Pipette Pump Series are electronic air displacement pipetting modules designed for use with a variety of Diagnostic Instrumentation. These (ADP) Pipetting Modules provide superb precision in dispensing volume. They are designed to provide a seamless integration experience with liquid handling (XYZ) robots and due to their accuracy and quality often selected for automated liquid handling systems.

The compact and lightweight unit simplifies system design by eliminating tubing and priming requirements normally associated with remote positive-displacement pump. Sample transfers or reagent aliquoting can be done accurately and precisely using the TriContinent disposable tips, eliminating cross contamination and carryover.

They are built to provide a seamless integration experience and are easy to integrate with any liquid handling (XYZ) robotic systems. Device developers can choose TriContinent’s M-Series motion controllers to provide a complete package, or use their own drivers. At your request we provide custom volumes and mounting configurations.
