Tecan and PhyNexus have developed standard processes for automating protein purification using PhyTip® columns integrated onto a Freedom EVO® liquid handling platform. The Freedom EVO is equipped with a liquid handling arm and a MultiChannel Arm™, and controlled using specially adapted scripts of standard Freedom EVOware® operating software. Although primarily used for protein purification, the disposable PhyTip columns can be supplied packed with various types of resin, making their application range extremely broad. The majority of PhyTip columns do not require additional hardware, the only exception being gel filtration columns, which use a specific PhyNexus rack and are transported on the Freedom EVO platform by a robotic manipulator arm.

This will increase Tecan’s offering to the bioprocessing community.” Douglas Gjerde, PhyNexus CEO, added: “We are very excited to partner with Tecan, and have been particularly impressed with the professionalism, enthusiasm, and technical competence of their team.”
