Tecan expands its OEM portfolio with Pulssar Technologies precision pumps

The Pulssar Technologies range of piston pumps will enable Tecan Partnering to serve new markets

Männedorf, Switzerland, March 1, 2017
– Tecan has extended its OEM product portfolio through the acquisition of the PBC, PSR and PBR piston pumps from Pulssar Technologies. These long life, high precision products are ideal for the automation of dispensing and pipetting tasks in life sciences instrumentation, and perfectly complement the Tecan Cavro® range of syringe pumps and pipetting solutions. This gives instrument designers an even broader choice of liquid handling technologies – as well as an array of robotic and valve options – backed by Tecan’s application expertise and global support infrastructure.

Joe Rotter, Vice President of Global Marketing for Components, said: “Pulssar’s high throughput precision pumps enhance our existing product portfolio, meeting the application-specific needs of different customer segments. Pulssar’s reputation for low volume accuracy and precision is a perfect fit for the high quality liquid handling and robotic platforms and components we offer our OEM partners.”

Khaled Abousaleh, founder of Pulssar Technologies, added: “We are very excited that Pulssar has become part of Tecan Partnering through this acquisition. The configurability and unique features of our piston pumps, combined with Tecan’s advanced pump technologies and robotic solutions, offer real synergistic value for new and existing customers.”
