Tecan has launched a range of turnkey solutions designed to provide fast, simple and cost-effective automation of liquid handling tasks.

Based on the Freedom EVO® 75 platform, these preconfigured systems are designed to eliminate tedious manual liquid handling tasks without the need for previous automation experience. Each Smart Automation solution is supplied with optimized, ready-to-run protocols, and includes all of the modules and ancillary devices necessary to automate your manual processes. The first Smart Automation solutions to be launched are:

  • a Pickolo™ fully automated colony picking workstation – offering an extensive choice of selection criteria, agar types and picking techniques for various micro-organisms and plate formats;
  • a vacuum-based nucleic acid extraction platform – using MACHEREY-NAGEL NucleoSpin® kits to provide flexible batch processing for up to 48 samples, including blood, tissue, bacteria and cells;
  • a magnetic bead-based nucleic acid separation workstation – using MACHEREY-NAGEL NucleoMag® kits for individual or 8-sample strip processing for up to 96 food, feed, tissue bacterial or cell samples.


A dedicated user interface and easy-to-follow application guide ensure that even new users can get up and running quickly, with touchscreen operation also available for some applications. These complete solutions provide an ideal introduction to the throughput, precision and reproducibility offered by Tecan’s liquid handling systems, with the flexibility to expand and adapt as laboratory needs change.
