Tecan Freedom EVO® offers on demand protein expression

The High Throughput Expression (HiTEL) Laboratory at the University of York is a service facility offering bespoke protein expression, using a Freedom EVO 200 workstation to meet its heavy demand for complete automation of high throughput cloning, expression and screening. "As a busy service laboratory, we rely on our automated systems to ensure reproducible cloning and protein expression for our clients," explained Experimental Officer Dr Rachel Adamson. "When the HiTEL facility was first established in early 2006, Tecan’s support allowed us to get our system set up and running very quickly, and we have been able to integrate a lot of different equipment into our workstation with the Company’s help."


"Automation of the cloning process minimizes variation between samples and eliminates operator errors," Rachel added. "This gives us a high level of confidence in the quality and quantity of protein we can produce for our customers. Equally importantly, it offers walkaway automation of time-consuming laboratory processes, allowing staff to perform other tasks and helping to accelerate our production."
