TECAN Freedom EVO 150 Liquid Handling Robot

TECAN Freedom EVO 150 Liquid Handling Robot

A TECAN Freedom Evo 150 liquid handling robot is available to interested users. The instrument has a 4 channel pipette head that uses liquid displacement for operation (Liha) and can be configured with washable fixed tips or disposable tips that can accurately dispense with appropriate diluters from 1000 ul down to less than 2ul each operation. Carriers are available for test tubes, microtiter plates, eppendorf tubes, and reagent troughs.

The system is a fantastic resource for conducting high-throughput operations and its functionality is greatly complements the TECAN plate reader and the NMR spectrometers in the RPI Core Facilities. Example applications include preparation of samples for conducting

  • Drug screens
  • Functional, binding, inhibition assays•Serial dilutions at high resolution for response/standard curves
  • Crystal trials
  • Toxicity and stability assessment
  • Aggregation studies
  • Enzyme kinetics assays

Assistance in the programming, implementation, and optimization of protocols is available, and limited disposable supplies can be directly purchased from the Core.
