Product News: Sample Preparation and Splitting on One Laboratory Platform

09 Dec 2008

Tecan, a global leader in automated robotic systems, has developed Freedom EVOlution™ 2.1, its latest version of software for Freedom EVO® Clinical, Tecan’s 98/79/EC-IVD compliant, open and configurable liquid handling platform for a broad range of in vitro diagnostic applications. The software allows laboratories to integrate several applications on one instrument, and the new version offers additional application areas – sample splitting and archiving – in addition to all the existing sample preparation functions.

The new software makes it possible to automate the splitting of source tubes into multiple destination tubes, and the archiving of source tubes into archive plates, without the need for a LIS/LIMS connection. Sample traceability is maintained by barcodes on all source and destination tubes, and the workflows are standardized, making the Freedom EVO Clinical platform ideal for all laboratories handling clinical samples for analysis or archiving.

Freedom EVOlution 2.1 is available as standard on new instruments, and as an upgrade option for existing instruments.
