Freedom EVOware® Hit-Picking

Fully automated hit-picking on the Freedom EVO®.

The Freedom EVOware Hit-Picking Wizard extends the functionality of Freedom EVOware for the set-up of hit-picking and cherry-picking applications without the need for custom software. Integrating seamlessly into Freedom EVOware’s intuitive graphical user interface, the wizard leads you through selecting source & destination labware and reduces set-up time. Plate maps are graphically defined allowing serial dilutions and controls to be pipetted on each plate for creating assay-ready plates for IC50 studies. Hit lists use a simple CSV file format making it easy to interface with a wide variety of LIMS and workflow management software packages. The wizard’s automatic plate handling brings source and destination plates from a variety of storage devices to the deck, increasing throughput and optimizing deck usage.
