"This product is easy to use. The more difficult component is programming the instrument, but once trained, it is also fairly straightforward. Service for the instrument is also great, our technicians that come out are friendly, professional and great at fine tuning the instrument for all our molecular needs."

"It is easy to learn and use. It has useful technology. However it has slower service. For large companies they can afford it but a little harder for smaller or start-ups to afford and maintain. The service can use some improvement in post sales."

"I like the easy user interface and flexibility in programming the robot to do whatever I need it to do. It is possible to be a simple or as complex as I need it to be and it’s very quick to change things when I need it to do a one-off transfer or something. I have always had good customer service and price breaks from Tecan."

"When you know well how to built and correct your method, it is possible to be very productive. We actually use the T-Vac module for SPE extraction and it is not very robust for many reasons."

  • Tecan Freedom EVO®

"I've been using TECAN robotic liquid handlers since 1998.  The Freedom/EVO workstations are a welcome addition and improvement.  The software is still not quite as easy to use as I believe it should be, but after a short learning curve anything is possible.  The hardware is, as always top rate.  I never go to work worrying about the dispensing or aspirating CV's, and in all the years I've worked with TECAN instruments I've never had the misfortune of the instrument breaking down. I would be happy to recommend the EVO line to any of my colleagues."

  • Application Area:Small Scale Purification

  • Tecan Freedom EVO®

"The Tecan Freedom EVO is very easy to work with for small scale purification due to the built-in chromatography wizard. The software provides step by step guide to custom build your script for you. It is very fast and friendly. I would recommend Tecan Freedom EVO to anyone interested in small scale purification - either Atoll columns or 96-well plates, such as GE Predictor plates."

"The initial learning curve can be quite challenging and once the methods are set up and optimized it is easy to navigate through the method. The new method development can be challenging if you do not have a good understanding of the programming language. I highly recommend taking their software training sessions."

  • Tecan Freedom EVO®

" We have two Tecan Freedom EVOs and both have been robust and accurate instruments for our work. Our EVO100 is integrated on a larger robotic system and is great for serial dilutions and plate additions of expensive reagents. Our EVO200 is utilized for a wide variety of applications including compound additions, serial dilutions, hit picking, and automated PCR. The software can be daunting at first but provides users with superior control over all aspects of pipetting."

"I have been using the Tecan Freedom Evo System as my liquid handling instrument for viral infectious load assays, cell staining, antibody neutralization assays, and nucleaic acid purification for 3 years now. The system is easy to use. Tecan does a great job in after purchase service and support, helping with maintenance and scripting. I would recommend this system because it is very versatile and can be setup for multiple uses rather than a single process approach."

  • Tecan Freedom EVO®

"The Tecan Freedom EVO is my automated liquid handler instrument of choice. An extremely robust system by nature, the Tecan is easily recovered from crashes. Parts are cost effective and readily available. The modular nature of the Tecan, span 8, 96/384 channel flexibility along with shakers, hotels and incubators is nothing short of incredible. The GUI is simple and easy to navigate; programming is a snap with many customized features already in place. The integration of the instrument with third party LIMS software is easy. "
