Get familiar with Tycho’s software

Everything you need to start your experimental run, annotate your samples, and analyze your data is contained on the instrument itself. Tycho has a touch screen to make it easy to navigate through all your results.


Generate results in 3 minutes

When you’re ready, tap on Start Measurement to begin your run. Watch your data being generated live.

(For demonstration purposes, we’ve sped up this visualization.)


Get fully analyzed results

And, ta-da! Results are automatically generated for you. Look at unfolding profiles as raw data, smooth data or first derivative format for alternate views of your results. Focus on the data you want to view by deselecting any profiles. Tap on Results to see your data in table format.


Compare data to determine similarity

See how similar your test samples are to your reference sample from the same run by tapping on Comparison and selecting your reference. Or choose a reference sample from a previous run.


Annotate your samples anytime

Name your samples either while they’re running or after results are generated. Add keywords to your experimental run so you can easily find it at a later date.

Just so you know Tycho’s specs

There’s an instrument, a capillary station and the capillaries themselves. Not much to handle at all.



Small, lightweight and easily portable

A little bit of bench space is all you need. It’s super lightweight so you can move it around anytime you want.

Weight: 6.6 kg
Dimensions: 37 cm H x 31 cm W x 18 cm D



Store and discard capillaries

Place the capillary station either on the right or left side of Tycho. Keep your capillaries standing up or laid down and when you’re done with your run, simply discard them in the drawer.



Tiny capillary, little sample volume

The only consumable you use is a capillary. It requires just 10 µL of sample at a concentration anywhere from 0.01 to >200 mg/mL. This wide concentration range means you don’t have to dilute your sample.
