What should I watch out for when buying a Tecan Fluent 780 Liquid Handler used/pre-owned from another lab?

Basic steps to confirm quality:

  • Ensure all robotic axes of the Tecan Liquid Handler are operational, properly leveled, and calibrated.
  • Verify the absence of physical damage to avoid airflow issues and expensive replacements.
  • Check the precision of pipetting channels for accurate aspiration and dispensation; consider requesting Artel MVS verification from the seller.
  • Inspect for any loose or damaged parts.
  • Confirm the door pistons operate smoothly to prevent sudden hood closure and potential injuries or sample spills.
  • Ensure the robotic arm doesn’t miss steps, remains unbent, and moves freely across all axes.
  • Ascertain the Tecan Liquid Handler suits your application needs to avoid costly post-purchase modifications or upgrades.
  • Check for any missing parts, including necessary carriers.
  • Be aware that encountering any of the above issues could lead to significant repair costs, so thorough pre-purchase verification is advised.

 

If you have concerns, we highly recommend inspecting the Tecan Liquid Handler in person or doing a live Zoom call; this will allow you to evaluate the Robotic Pipetting system and confirm that everything works.

 

This procurement is for a University or College. Are purchase orders with NET terms accepted?
  • If you are a US or Canadian customer, we are likely already a registered vendor in your University's vendor system. This would greatly expedite the process of PO approvals and get the Tecan Liquid Handler into your lab faster.
  • NET terms are accepted from US & Canadian universities and Fortune 500 companies.

 

How fast will you ship?
  • We can ship within a few days to 2 weeks. Ship times depend on the current demand for our instruments and the customization required. Members of our sales team will be able to offer current estimates.

 

Will my instrument be insured during shipping?

  • If the buyer handles shipping, then shipping insurance responsibility falls to the buyer; we highly advise that the buyer obtain shipping insurance from their carrier.

 

How do you pack? Have you packed and shipped Tecan Fluent 780 Liquid Handler? Do you ship Internationally?

Packing

  • Most Tecan Liquid Handlers ship in fully enclosed ISPM-15 certified wooden crates, with proper padding underneath and the sides, and have moving components braced.
  • Accessories are packed safely in boxes with padding and then safely packed inside the crate.
  • We may not use a crate for local deliveries to save you money *if delivered by us.
  • We often use “tilt’ & “shock” indicators on the crates to ensure the crate has not been excessively tilted and dropped where equipment may suffer damage.
  • Photos are taken during the packing process to make sure nothing is missed.

 

USA/Canada Shipping

  • Within the US and Canada, we will ship via selected freight carriers. We do not use low-price/high-damage carriers as we want the equipment to get safely to you.

 

International Shipping

  • Internationally, we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel (such as UPS or DHL), which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
    We have extensive experience shipping robotic liquid handlers around the world.

 

Our experience and process

  • We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of sensitive analytical instruments, including Tecan Fluent 780 Liquid Handlers.
  • Before final packing/shipping, the Tecan Fluent 780 Liquid Handler is re-checked to verify performance.

 

Sustainability
  • Well, this one is easy; buying a pre-owned Liquid Handler is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.
