New compatibility with Freedom EVOware® 2.2


The most recent version of Tecan’s Freedom EVOware software makes it easier than ever to control pipetting and scheduling operations of Freedom EVO® liquid handling platforms. Freedom EVOware 2.2 maintains the same intuitive graphical user interface, offers greater flexibility and ensures full compatibility with the latest hardware modules – all without compromising on operating speed and process security.


Freedom EVOware 2.2 extends the wide range of pipetting options by offering full support of the new 384-MultiChannel Arm™ (MCA384). This allows pipetting using 384 or 96 tips, as well as pipetting just a single row or column of wells. Nested disposable tips for reduced cost and increased flexibility will soon be available for the MCA, and the software already supports nested tips stored in either passive stacks on the worktable or in external Te-Stack™ modules to maximize walk-away time.

The latest version of Freedom EVOware puts even more power into the hands of the user, in terms of both process security and data storage. Users can monitor the instrument remotely through either a web page or a Windows Vista® gadget, with Freedom EVOware now running under Windows Vista as well as Windows XP. Process security has been enhanced by extending recovery protocols to also work within worklists and system add-ons. Data management is improved by enabling scripts and processes to be stored into user-defined folders. A script navigator speeds up accessing any section of short or long scripts.
