Standardization of Tecan Freedom EVO liquid handling platforms using the QC Kit

This tutorial presented by Artel and Tecan will discuss the importance of standardization of these critical laboratory tools and how to control the performance of Tecan® Freedom EVO® liquid handling platforms using the Tecan QC Kit. In addition, we will summarize the results of an in-depth study on the effects of environmental conditions on liquid handler performance. This tutorial will illustrate how you can be confident that 1 µL is really 1 µL regardless of where, when or with what liquid handler the volume was dispensed.
