QC Kit - a fully integrated performance verification solution for Freedom EVO® workstations.

Tecan has partnered with Artel to offer the QC Kit, a fully integrated performance verification solution for its Freedom EVO liquid handling workstations.

The QC Kit incorporates Artel’s proprietary Ratiometric Photometry™ technology within the Freedom EVO system, enabling collection of precision and accuracy performance data regarding the volumes delivered by every channel of a liquid handling arm, with results fully traceable to international standards.

This new tool provides clinical, pharmaceutical and forensic laboratories a simple and reliable way to meet increasing Quality & Regulatory demand for performance verification.

The QC Kit comprises an Infinite® F50 or Infinite 200 PRO microplate reader, a calibrator plate, shaker, barcode scanner and a Freedom EVOware® software add-on, plus a range of co­branded consumables, including characterized verification microplates and color dye solutions.

All color dye solutions are traceable to international reference standards, allowing direct comparison of results between different sites and instruments.

The liquid handling performance results can be obtained automatically in just 10 to 30 minutes - depending on the workstation configuration - without the need for a carefully controlled testing environment, sample preparation or standard curve generation.

“Artel’s mission is to solve liquid handling quality, productivity and compliance challenges for our customers and, by partnering on this project with Tecan, the world’s leading supplier of liquid handling instruments, we are a step closer to achieving our mission,” said Kirby Pilcher, President of Artel.

Pilcher continued, “With the regulatory burden for analytical laboratories increasing year-on-year, it is fantastic to be part of a team helping to reduce the complexity of ensuring regulatory compliance.”

Frederic Vanderhaegen, Head of Life Sciences Business at Tecan, added: “We are delighted to have entered into this partnership with Artel, enabling us to bring a turnkey solution to Tecan’s broad customer base for liquid handling performance verification testing.”

The QC Kit product line will be offered to Tecan’s global customer base through Life Sciences Business and Partnering Business channels.

Artel will continue to promote and sell its technology within its existing Multichannel Verification System (MVS®) and Liquid Handling Performance Verification Service brands.
