Yenra : Science : Pipetting : Fast, scalable, automated multi channel solution for high precision volume dispensing liquid handling operations


Tecan's Freedom EVO 96R is a multi-channel solution that brings rapid sample dispensing and microplate processing to many key procedures in genomics, proteomics, and medicine discovery such as sample preparation, compound management or high-content screening. Fast and scalable, it delivers significant time-savings for laboratory personnel.

"Tecan's Freedom EVO 96R multi-channel solution streamlines laboratory processes by allowing essential tasks, such as pipetting, head washing and tip exchange to be performed in parallel with robotic arm movement, tip loading, plate handling, detection, or any other scheduled process step", comments Carl Severinghaus of Tecan. "The new platforms are smart, fast and are competitively priced, providing a real value to our customers."

With its 96-well pipetting head, and independent plate gripper, Freedom EVO96R is an excellent pipetting platform for medium to high throughput pipetting in the range of 1 microliter to 200 microliter. This innovative automation tool has the advantage of using a washable 96-tip manifold and disposable tips in the same pipetting run and includes a wide selection of plate stackers, readers, washers, and on-deck incubators.

Its brother, the Freedom EVO384R multi-channel pipetting platform provides high precision volume dispensing into 384-well plates and is ideal for medium-to-high throughput applications that demand a broad pipetting range reaching submicroliter volumes (200 nl - 50 microliter). The unique wash system minimizes the risk of cross-contamination and removes the need for expensive disposable tips normally associated with this level of performance.

Tecan's Evoware software controls the EVOware96R and Freedom EVO384R platforms. Freedom EVOware provides scheduling and liquid handling in a single simplified user interface. The proprietary software is a unique combination of flexibility and is fast and user-friendly, simplifying the set-up of complex, multi-device schedules. Freedom EVOware offers the versatility to control these platforms together with devices for detection, separation, plate handling and storage from Tecan and third party devices.

Tecan specializes in the development, production, and distribution of solutions enabling the discovery of pharmaceutical substances, as well as for genomics, proteomics, and diagnostics.
