The need for ever stricter quality control requires laboratories to perform regular quality checks on their assays and equipment, including their automated liquid handling workstations. Tecan has addressed this need by introducing the QC Kit, allowing quick and comprehensive volume transfer verification for Freedom EVO and Fluent workstations.

Workflow - QC Kit

Start, measure, done!

The QC Kit saves time compared to other methods because there is no need for sample preparation, standard curve generation or post-measurement calculations. On completion of a test, a report with clear pass/fail indications is generated automatically.

Secure and convenient

Step-by-step software guidance, with clear instructions, eliminates mistakes and ensures that this method is suitable for technicians of any skill level.

Comprehensive results and compliance

Test results based on the QC Kit are traceable to international standards and can be compared to manufacturers’ specifications for IQ/OQ. In addition to pass/fail indications, overall accuracy and volume per tip information is displayed on the printout.


The QC Kit incorporates Artel’s proprietary Ratiometric Photometry technology onto Freedom EVO and Fluent systems. In the first step, the blue diluent solution is dispensed into the well of the dimensionally-characterized QC Kit verification plate.

Calibrator plate

In order to correct for day-to-day performance variations in the QC Kit reader, and to allow direct comparison of instrument performance, the absorbance measurements are normalized using a calibrator plate. This allows the readings to be directly correlated a reference spectrophotometer, in accordance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 and ANSI/NCSL Z540 standards.
