Tecan and GE Healthcare collaborate for high throughput process development

Tecan and GE Healthcare are working together to bring increased quality and efficiency to process development. The collaboration between the two suppliers focuses on high throughput screening of protein purification conditions, using the combination of Tecan’s Freedom EVO® automated workstation with GE Healthcare’s PreDictor™ 96-well plates pre-filled with BioProcess™ chromatography media.

According to the companies, the combination of the technologies substantially shortens time spent on process development while allowing the investigation of a much larger experimental space, resulting in greater understanding of the process.

“With this collaboration, we have created a powerful solution for process development,” said Eric Willimann, Market Manager Protein Science, Tecan. “The combination of GE’s chemistry and Tecan’s hardware will provide our customers with a rapid and efficient method of screening process parameters, with minimal hands-on time.”
