Thermo Scientific CV2000 Enhances Laboratory Workflow and Productivity

ATLANTA (September 21, 2011) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the Thermo Scientific CV2000 automated aliquoting liquid handler. This newly developed, second-generation platform enhances laboratory efficiency through workflow automation. The CV2000™ can accurately dispense liquid volumes from 100-875 µL and process up to 1000 samples per hour. With its robotic arm and rotary height sensors, it fits easily into automated workflows to boost sample throughput. The system is compatible with a wide variety of sample management software, but can also be used as a stand-alone instrument. The system effectively manages samples to boost efficiency and productivity with zero cross-contamination.

Fully compatible with multiple rack formats, the CV2000 system allows users to change the loading and dispensing routine to suit their needs. A unique tip preservation system allows the instrument to only discharge used tips, reducing waste while eliminating contamination. Capable of holding up to 300 samples and accommodating both 45 and 90 mL urine containers, the system can automate the process of aliquoting urine from primary samples to analyzer racks. Furthermore, the CV2000 system creates a batch report that is compatible with downstream analysis instrumentation, which is used to process the urine samples.

The Thermo Scientific CV2000 provides ultimate convenience and safety with active opening and closing system and locking guards that meet the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations.
