COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS BELOW
What are the benefits of a Positive Pressure Solid Phase Extraction system for my lab?
Positive Pressure Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) systems such as the Tecan Resolvex A200 offer several benefits to users in the laboratory. These devices are used to isolate specific compounds or impurities from complex matrices for further analysis, typically in the fields of pharmaceutical, environmental, and food testing. Here's a summary of the key benefits:
- Increased Throughput: Positive pressure SPE systems allow for multiple samples to be processed simultaneously, greatly improving throughput and efficiency, particularly for high-volume applications.
- Improved Reproducibility: Because positive pressure SPE systems offer consistent and precise pressure control, they can deliver more reproducible results compared to manual or vacuum-based SPE methods.
- Better Sample Integrity: Positive pressure prevents the sample from being drawn through the cartridge too quickly, which can help protect delicate compounds and enhance overall sample integrity.
- Versatility: Positive pressure SPE systems can handle a wide range of sample types and volumes, making them versatile tools for many different analytical applications.
- Reduced Solvent Usage: SPE systems can reduce the amount of solvent needed for sample preparation compared to traditional liquid-liquid extraction methods, making the process more environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
- Automation Capabilities: Some positive pressure SPE systems offer automation capabilities, reducing hands-on time and minimizing potential sources of error.
Overall, a Tecan Resolvex A200 positive pressure SPE system can be a valuable addition to the lab, enabling more efficient, reproducible, and versatile sample preparation for a variety of analytical methods.

We offer both onsite and remote demos via Zoom.
- We invite you to come in for an onsite Demo or schedule a Zoom demo of the Resolvex A200.
What about the warranty? Installation, training, maintenance?
Our Tecan Resolvex A200 96 ppSPE Workstations come with a 90-Day Warranty.
- The warranty term is 90 Days from the date of the cytometer's arrival at the destination.
- This includes parts and labor.
- The warranty does not cover clogs.
- Shipping damage that is not reported at the time of delivery.
- Damage to the system due to the use of incorrect fluids or samples.
- Electrical damage from plugging into an incorrect voltage.
- Improper storage procedures that will allow the FlowCell to dry out improperly.
- Issues caused by lack of proper standard maintenance.
- Water damage.
- Physical damage.
Optional Training Package:
We can offer Resolvex A200 training (Remote setup, general software usage, and maintenance procedures guidance). This service is highly recommended to avoid a lot of the above issues.
What should I watch out for when buying a Tecan Resolvex A200 96 ppSPE Workstation used/pre-owned from another lab?
Basic steps to confirm quality:
- Confirm that the solvent system is clean; this is often a complex undertaking if not already done after removing it from service.
- Confirm there is no present physical damage to the SPE system.
- Confirm that the trough is present and is not severely corroded.
- Make sure there are no loose/damaged pumps that may cause leaks.
- Make sure the solvent system is not clogged and all valves operate reliably. (a concern if the shutdown procedure was not followed)
- If the SPE system has no pneumatic leaks.
- Confirm that the SPE system is appropriate to your application;
- Confirm that the SPE system is tested to dispense accurately and evenly.
- Make sure there are no missing components; it won`t be fast or inexpensive to correct.
If you have concerns, we highly recommend inspecting the SPE system in person or doing a live Zoom call; this will allow you to evaluate the SPE system and confirm that everything works.
Do you have Tecan Resolvex A200s on hand?
- We stock multiple Tecan Resolvex A200s along with many replacement parts.
I am from the University or College. Do you accept Purchase Orders?
- 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 SPE system into your lab faster.
- POs are accepted from US and Canadian universities.
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. Members of our sales team will be able to offer current estimates.
Will my instrument be insured during shipping?
- All Tecan Resolvex A200s are shipped fully insured within the US and internationally as long as we are the shipper and handle shipping arrangements.
- 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 SPE systems in the past? Do you ship Internationally?
- Most SPE systems 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.
- Within 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.
- Internationally we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel, which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
We have extensive experience shipping SPE systems around the world.
Our experience and process
- We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of sensitive analytical instruments, including Tecan Resolvex A200s.
- Before final packing/shipping, the Tecan Resolvex A200 is re-checked by our technicians to verify performance.
How much will I save buying it pre-owned, and is it worth it?
A lot…and it is certainly worth it, and here is why. Feel free to ask for feedback from hundreds of customers that bought from us.
- You will save over 55-70% vs. buying a new SPE system. Why not spend leftover funds on another instrument for your lab?
- You will get a 90 days warranty, plus, when available, an option to obtain an extended warranty agreement.
- Get peace of mind knowing that your instrument was tested and working the day it left our facility and is covered if there are faults.
The Tecan Resolvex A200 could be priced up to $60,000. So why not save your funds by buying a used Tecan Resolvex A200, get the high-quality equipment you expect from Tecan, and use your leftover funds elsewhere?
- Well, this one is easy; buying a pre-owned Tecan Resolvex A200 is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.

Here we are showing you our standard packing process
1. All items are different, but they all follow the same principle when packaging.
2. Start with a well-constructed crate
A well-constructed crate would consist of 1/2” to 5/8” Plywood with framing. We generally purchase our crates from a third party who specializes in custom crates.
3. You always want the Instrument to not be directly on the wood deck of the crate. This is done by placing it on foam, inside of the crate. We use 2” 1.7 lb. density foam which works great. It provides cushioning and enough firmness to support the Instrument.
4. The next step is to make sure there is nothing on the deck of the Instrument and the Head/ Arm is secured. In some cases there will be multiple arms to secure but for this example there is only one. The reason for this is so there is no free movement during transit which could cause serious damage to the Instrument.
5. The next step is to make sure your Instrument is covered in either a pallet bag or shrink wrap so no dust or foreign object will get into the crate.
6. The next step is to secure the instrument inside the crate by bracing. We use a method of 2x4’s which have 1” foam shrink wrapped to them so no piece of wood touches the actual instrument.
7. Final step is to photograph everything inside the crate and then seal it with screws.
