Automation Tips for Tecan Freedom Evo and Fluent 

Fluotics manufactures a complete selection of automation tips for Tecan™ Freedom Evo and Fluent liquid handlers. Our automation tips are directly interchangeable with their Tecan automation tip counterpart. For further information, please visit our Resources page where you can find our complete Product Catalog, an Instrument Compatibility Chart, and Product Specifications for choosing the right tip for your Tecan Evo or Fluent.

TECAN FREEDOM EVO AND FLUENT MCA AUTOMATION TIPS – SELECTION

Fluotics offers Tecan 96 MCA compatible robotic pipette tips in two tip volumes, with or without filters, for Freedom Evo and Fluent liquid handling workstations. Our Tecan P200 MCA pipette tip was specially designed to hold a complete 200 uL with a barrier filter, giving you extra flexibility in your processes. Both Tecan tip types are guaranteed to access plate densities ranging from 96 to 384 wells. 

Specifically, we offer the following pipette tip types with their corresponding volume ranges:

Tecan MCA P50 automation tip | 50 µL working volume, 8 x 12 tip array (96 format)

Tecan MCA P200 automation tip | 200 µL working volume, 8 x 12 tip array (96 format)

 

COMPATIBILITY

Fluotics designs its Tecan automation tips for maximum compatibility with the Freedom Evo and Fluent robotic liquid handlers. We expect our compatible pipet tips to be directly interchangeable with the original Tecan tips. A separate labware definition is unnecessary when using our Tecan Freedom Evo and Fluent compatible automation tips. Similarly, the end user does not need to modify their existing Evoware automation control software protocols.

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY

Our goal is complete assurance and confidence in the quality of Fluotics’ Tecan Freedom Evo and Fluent compatible automation tips.

To this end our pipette tips are manufactured within a highly controlled environment using sophisticated production processes. Our automation pipette tips begin with careful design, testing and validation of molds using advanced tooling techniques. Production processes are fully integrated with multiple quality control steps at each stage. Each tip not only undergoes automated machine vision inspection for straightness and uniformity, but also functional performance checks of each tip lot.

Functional performance is tested on the identical instruments that our customers use and include standalone instruments (Freedom Evo) and workstation components such as Te-Stacks. Performance testing includes accuracy and precision testing (% coefficient of variation, CV) for each lot using ANSI/SBS standard microwell plates. Additional functional testing includes (but is not limited to):

– Tip capacity

– Tip liquid level and retention (using H2O, EtOH, and DMSO)

– Tip liquid residual quantification

– Tip loading and unloading

– Tip length (physical and effective)

– Tip curvature (high density microwell plate access)

Common concerns such as static buildup are also addressed during the production processes where rigorous anti-static measures are implemented. By applying these strict quality control procedures, the tightest dimensional and performance tolerances are achieved allowing us to guarantee consistently accurate and precise pipetting.

 

GUARANTEE

When you choose Fluotics, we know your decision is more than a financial one. It’s also an implicit trust in us and our products. Consequently, our aim is to provide you with the best experience imaginable. When you purchase Fluotics’ products they are always fully and unconditionally guaranteed to perform to your expectations. 

 

MATERIALS

Fluotics produces its Tecan Freedom Evo and Fluent compatible automation tips from the highest grade virgin polypropylene available. We use ultra-polishing techniques with our pipet tips to ensure low liquid retention without the use of releasing agents or other additives which have been shown to be problematic in certain assays (John Watson et al., 2009). 

 

APPLICATIONS

From simple liquid transfers to complex multi-step assay protocols, Fluotics’ Freedom Evo and Fluent compatible robotic tips are used in an array of liquid handling protocols. Our automation tips are used daily worldwide by scientists to perform compound management, lead discovery, assay development, next generation sequencing (NGS), and other important functions.

Whether the application is plate to plate transfer, single tip hit picking or serial dilution you can have full confidence that Fluotics’ tips will consistently meet and exceed expectations.

Publications describing Fluotics’ pipette tips are available in our Library.
