The Freedom EVO series is one of the most popular and reliable systems in the market, with more than 5,000 systems installed worldwide.
It offers a choice of worktable capacities, each with building-block modularity that brings convenient scalability, proven liquid handling, easy-to-use robotics and advanced process control within reach of every laboratory scientist. This flexible platform enables you to select a preconfigured automation solution for your application, or to create your system according to your specific needs with the help of Tecan’s automation specialists. The intuitive Freedom EVOware® user interface optimally combines pipetting, robotics and scheduling of multiple devices in a single package.
The Freedom EVO can evolve as your needs change, using up to three arms on one platform to combine liquid handling and robotic resources. Start with liquid handling only, for sample dilution or plate replication, and upgrade with robotic manipulation for full assay automation. All arms can be easily upgraded or exchanged at your site, ensuring that your workstation meets your laboratory needs both now and in the future. Seven types of robotic arm are available: LiHa, Air LiHa, MultiChannel Arm™ (MCA) 96, MCA 384, Robotic Manipulator (standard or extended Z-axis) and Pick and Place.
Freedom EVO workstations provide unrivalled flexibility, uniquely offering a choice of pipetting technologies – even allowing you to combine air and liquid displacement – on a single workstation. Two-, four- and eight-channel liquid displacement (LiHa) or four-/eight-channel air displacement (Air LiHa) pipetting arms are available, offering a volume range from 0.5 to 5,000 µl or more. For true parallel processing, the MultiChannel Arm 96 offers simultaneous pipetting of 96 channels, providing timely addition of liquids directly into microplates, helping to optimize assay results. The MCA 96 has the flexibility to work with both disposable and washable tips, which can be automatically exchanged during a run. It can also operate as an 8- or 12-channel pipette by picking up a single column or row of disposable tips. To further increase throughput and productivity, a MultiChannel Arm 384 is also available. It offers a very broad volume range – 0.5 to 125 µl in 384-well format or 0.5 to 500 µl in 96-well format – and can use washable and disposable tips interchangeably during a workflow, picking up rows of 12 or 24 tips and columns of 8, 16 or 32 tips if required.
