Why does your Tecan Freedom EVO need an annual PM?

Just like your car needs maintenance and oil change regularly to run smoothly, keeping up the maintenance schedule for your Tecan Freedom EVO is also recommended.

Often, people run into issues out of nowhere.

And you wonder, what have I done wrong even after multiple retries?

These are the most common failures people might run into when the Tecan Evo needs a good tune-up (Preventative Maintenance, PM):


–Parts wearing out

There are multiple locations containing Orings on the Tecan Evo.

A faulty Oring could cause leaking, dropping tips, inaccurate measurement...etc.

During the PM procedure, we check on all the Orings on the Tecan Evo and replace them appropriately.

And, of course, the fluid volume gets checked as well.




–Imprecise positioning

The arms on the Tecan Evo are driven by motors and belts.

We all know the motors are bulletproof, but belts stretch out over time. 

And it could affect the precision when aiming the plates or tubes.

It's unnecessary to change the belts, but it's a good idea to have the alignment checked out by an engineer during the PM.
