Condition, availability, and customization
- Fully Functional
- Fully Serviced
- Good condition
- Warranty 90 Days
- Savings between $70,000 and $200,000, depending on your configuration
- Multiple Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handlers on hand
Dispense volume will be verified via Artel MVS system, and a verification report will be provided prior to shipping.
This system is about $110,000 new. It has been tested and is functioning well.
It does not come with the software license dongle(license key); you will need to obtain it from Tecan. If you are placing the system on the service agreement, they will likely supply it as part of the service agreement and upgrade you to the newest version of Evoware. Tecan Evoware software's newest version directly from Tecan costs around $11,000.00. We may also have version Evoware 2.7 license dongles on hand that we can include for $5800.00; they work on Windows 7 and possibly Windows 8.1 (need to confirm). Windows version only matters if you are connecting a liquid handler computer to the network; many customers do not, so this is almost always a non-issue.
We have priced the system accordingly, so you may purchase it and place it on the service agreement while paying less than 40% vs new and still getting 1-year warranty/ongoing support from Tecan (or longer warranty if keeping the system on the service agreement). You will save around $40,000-$70,000, possibly more vs buying it new.
Tecan will be happy to assist you! They will offer PM, validation, service agreements, etc.

Incorporating the Tecan EVO into a lab setup can significantly streamline operations, elevate the quality of results, and provide a robust platform for a wide variety of research and diagnostic applications.
Steps you take to verify, service, and confirm the functionality of the Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler?
- We inspect the Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler for physical damage.
- The Liquid Handler components are inspected and cleaned.
- We perform motion/stress tests on all the Tecan EVO-2’s robotic axis.
- We test the operation of the pipette heads, and they are verified via Artel MVS.
- Mechanical components inspected, adjusted, and lubricated if necessary.
- The proper operation of electronic components is confirmed.
- Necessary repairs and services are performed to make sure the Liquid Handler system will function as intended.
- We perform alignment calibrations and adjustments on each pipette channel.
- Necessary deck calibrations are performed, and software is taught to recognize installed deck positions.
What supplies do I need?
You will need the consumables starting out:
- Consumables - Tecan – If you require Teacn Brand
- Tecan compatible Tips at Thomas Scientific – for off-brand Tips
Can I view the Tecan EVO-2 in person at your facility or do a live Zoom demo before it is shipped to me?
We offer both onsite and remote demos via Zoom.
- We invite you to come in for an onsite Demo or schedule a Zoom demo of the Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler.
What about the warranty? Installation, training, maintenance?
Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler comes with a 90-Day Warranty.
- The warranty term is 90 Days from the date of the Tecan EVO-2’s arrival at the destination.
- This includes parts and labor.
- Damage to the system due to the use of incorrect fluids, chemicals, or samples.
- Damage due to incorrect use.
- Electrical damage from plugging into an incorrect voltage.
- Improper storage procedures.
- Shipping damage not reported within 48hrs of delivery
- Issues caused by lack of proper standard maintenance.
- Moisture/Water damage.
- Physical damage.
Optional Training Package:
We can offer Tecan Liquid Handler training (Remote setup, general software usage, and maintenance procedures guidance). This service is highly recommended to avoid a lot of the above issues.
What should I watch out for when buying a Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler used/pre-owned from another lab?
Basic steps to confirm quality:
- Confirm that all the Tecan Liquid Handler’s robotic axis work; this is often a complex undertaking to repair if not already done.
- Confirm there is no present physical damage. (Cracked/broken panels allow air flow that can affect accuracy and are not cheap to replace)
- Confirm that the pipetting channels aspirate and dispense accurately.
- Make sure there are no loose/damaged components.
- Make sure the hood/door pitons work reliably; bad pistons can drop the hood suddenly, causing injury and/or spilled samples.
- Ensure the Tecan Liquid Handler’s robotic axis do not skip steps, are not bent, and move freely on all axis.
- Confirm that the Tecan Liquid Handler is appropriate to your application; Exchanging or upgrading your system after the fact will be costly.
- Make sure there are no missing components; it won`t be fast or inexpensive to correct.
If you have concerns, we highly recommend inspecting the Tecan Liquid Handler in person or doing a live Zoom call; this will allow you to evaluate the Robotic Pipetting system and confirm that everything works.
Do you have Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handlers on hand?
- We stock multiple Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler systems along with many replacement parts.
This procurement is for a University or College, are purchase orders with NET terms accepted?
- If you are a US or Canadian customer, we are likely already a registered vendor in your University's vendor system. This would greatly expedite the process of PO approvals and get the Tecan Liquid Handler into your lab faster.
- POs are accepted from US and Canadian universities.
How fast will you ship?
- We can ship within a few days to 2 weeks. Ship times depend on the current demand for our instruments. Members of our sales team will be able to offer current estimates.
Will my instrument be insured during shipping?
- All Tecan Liquid Handler systems are shipped fully insured within the US and internationally as long as we are a shipper and handle shipping arrangements.
- If the buyer handles shipping, then shipping insurance responsibility falls to the buyer; we highly advise that the buyer obtain shipping insurance from their carrier.
How do you pack? Have you packed and shipped Tecan Liquid Handler? Do you ship Internationally?
- Most Tecan Liquid Handlers ship in fully enclosed ISPM-15 certified wooden crates, with proper padding underneath and the sides, and have moving components braced.
- Accessories are packed safely in boxes with padding and then safely packed inside the crate.
- We may not use a crate for local deliveries to save you money *if delivered by us.
- We often use “tilt’ & “shock” indicators on the crates to ensure the crate has not been excessively tilted and dropped where equipment may suffer damage.
- Photos are taken during the packing process to make sure nothing is missed.
- Within US and Canada, we will ship via selected freight carriers. We do not use low-price/high-damage carriers as we want the equipment to get safely to you.
- Internationally we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel (such as UPS, DHL), which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
We have extensive experience shipping robotic liquid handelers around the world.
Our experience and process
- We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of sensitive analytical instruments, including Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handlers.
- Before final packing/shipping, the Tecan EVO-2 Liquid Handler is re-checked to verify performance.
