Simple control of complex sample pipetting procedures


The latest Freedom EVOware® Sample Oriented software, version 1.2, is now available for the Freedom EVO® family of workstations, enhancing Freedom EVOware Standard and Freedom EVOware Plus with a number of sample-based pipetting, diluting and pooling functions. The software is ideal for laboratories that need to perform complex pipetting and dilution sequences, and for those with variable joblists, assays and plate definitions. It is essential for pooling samples* with the Freedom EVO Clinical and Te-PoolSafe™, and controls primary pooling, sub-pooling, cross pooling and pipetting to archive plates.


The plug-in wizards provide simple, graphically-guided operation for many tasks, including setting up assay plates, and defining pipetting sequences and pre- or serial dilutions. Positive identification of samples, plates and liquids can be carried out using PosID™ 2 or PosID 3 on the Freedom EVO 100, 150 and 200, or using a hand-held scanner on the Freedom EVO 75. Freedom EVOware Sample Tracking is available as an optional add-on that creates printed reports for each plate (Sample Tracking Embedded) and provides long-term data storage (Sample Tracking Standard).

Freedom EVOware Sample Oriented can be used with Magellan™, Tecan’s sophisticated data processing software for detection instruments, and has LIMS and ASTM E1381/E1392 connectivity. Freedom EVOware Sample Oriented can be evaluated for 30 days before a dongle is required for continued operation.

*Pooling and Te-PoolSafe option not available in the USA.
