Pneumatic transport re-imagined into a cutting edge pharmaceutical research and development tool
Systems to sort, store and deliver your samples.
Pneumatic technology – A breath of fresh air for sample transport
For centuries compressed air has been used as a motive force. Being low cost, efficient, safe and clean makes it ideal for modern laboratory automation. TTP Labtech Ltd. has embraced pneumatic power in its technologically advanced products for many years. We are proud of our alternative solutions to engineering challenges using pneumatics.
Fast, long distance, flexible, robust and highly configurable products powered by this innovative technology
With two decades of expertise transporting microtubes using pneumatic technology, we offer solutions to deliver between labs, analytical suites and even across sites covering several hundred metres. Our innovative technologies will deliver unrivalled reliability and efficiency you can depend upon.
lab2lab: building-wide automation using pneumatic transport
lab2lab is a building-wide microtube transport and instrument control system. Scientists use it to send samples for automated analysis on Agilent, Bruker and Waters instruments. lab2lab offers numerous advantages over a conventional Open Access.
building2building: site-wide sample transportation
building2building is an independently controlled microtube transfer system. A building2building system comprises a pair of transceiver units connected by a transport pipe. Each transceiver also has as an external transport pipe leading to either a lab2lab sender, collection station or router. Distances between transceivers can be up to 1000 metres.

Pneumatic tube transport provides flexible solutions to development and manufacturing applications
Development and manufacturing applications that require transportation, analysis or storage of small fluid samples can benifit from the lab2lab ecosystem and technology. For example, Quotient have utilised this technology to deliver precious blood and antibody samples from a storage system to a substrate print line. Others need an automated, reliable, low cost, small footprint solution to store and retrieve valuable stocks.

Secure management of your most valuable assets
Compound management is at the heart of successful drug discovery. Storage of samples at the correct temperature and conditions is vital along with the ability to meet the ever increasing demands of screening. With our range of scalable solutions, we meet your needs today and tomorrow.
Driving efficiency within the medicinal chemistry workflow
The continuous cycle of synthesis and analysis is a well known bottleneck in the drug discovery process. Working with leading pharmaceutical companies, we have developed ground breaking technologies that will revolutionise the creation and analysis of novel chemical entities to accelerate drug discovery.
Automated on-line analysis
Simple registration and sending of samples for analysis, lab2lab enables greater time and space efficiency for synthetic chemistry laboratories, giving chemists access to a full range of analytical data directly from their bench. Samples can be registered, methods selected and then sent to a suite of centralised analytical equipment such as LC/MS or NMR, that can be located elsewhere on the site. Results are returned and data placed directly into Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN) faster than is typically achieved with equipment directly in the laboratory.
A biobank is only as good as its samples
The preservation of high quality samples for tens of years is fundamental to a successful biobank. Biobanks need to offer researchers high quality samples through optimal processing, preservation and storage in the correct conditions for the sample type and maintain these conditions for the lifetime of the sample.
