Selecting the right automated ELISA analyzer can significantly impact laboratory efficiency and throughput. This comparison between the HUMAN Elisys Quattro and Tecan Freedom EVOlyzer 100 will help clarify which system best fits your lab's requirements.

Analyzer Type

The type of analyzer determines the automation level and how many plates can be handled concurrently, affecting throughput and efficiency.

The HUMAN Elisys Quattro is a 4-plate fully automated ELISA analyzer, while the Tecan Freedom EVOlyzer 100 offers a 6 plates automation solution. Tecan’s model can potentially handle more workload with its higher plate capacity.

Plate Loading Capacity

Plate loading capacity indicates the number of ELISA plates that can be processed in a single run, affecting the analyzer's overall throughput.

The Elisys Quattro can manage up to 7 plates per run, slightly more than the 6 plates capacity of the Freedom EVOlyzer 100, giving HUMAN an edge in potential throughput per run.

Samples Positions

Sample positions determine how many samples can be tested simultaneously, directly influencing the workflow efficiency.

The Elisys Quattro supports up to 180 tubes, while the Freedom EVOlyzer 100's capacity ranges from 16 up to 640 sample tubes depending on configuration. The flexible setup of Tecan's model allows for greater customization based on lab needs.

Reagent Positions

Reagent positions reflect the analyzer's ability to store and use different reagents for various tests.

The Elisys Quattro features 60 positions across five reagent racks, whereas Tecan does not specify the reagent capacity, which might require clarification from the manufacturer.

Internal Barcode Reader

Internal barcode readers help automate and secure the identification of sample and reagent details, minimizing human errors.

Both models offer advanced barcode reading capabilities, ensuring efficient and accurate sample tracking.

Pipetting System

The pipetting system affects the precision and flexibility of sample and reagent handling.

The Elisys Quattro uses 300 μl and 1100 μl conductive carbon tips, while the Freedom EVOlyzer 100 is available with 2 or 4 tips. This suggests the Elisys Quattro may offer more precise handling with its specific tip options.

Number of Tips

This determines how many disposable tips the system can hold, influencing the duration the system can operate without needing restocking.

The Elisys Quattro supports up to 5 racks for disposable tips, boasting an onboard capacity of 480 tips. Tecan's specifications in this area are not detailed but are known for their efficient use of FEP-coated, conductive disposable tips.

Computer and Interfaces

The type of computer and interfaces available dictate the analyzer's connectivity and integration with laboratory information systems.

Both systems utilize an external computer. The Elisys Quattro operates with an RS232 interface, while specific interface details for Tecan are not listed.

LIS (Laboratory Information System)

Integration capabilities with laboratory information systems allow for seamless data management and communication.

Both analyzers offer bidirectional communication with LIS, supporting standard and customizable protocols. The Elisys Quattro supports Ethernet and is adaptable with ASTM and other protocols, while Tecan provides a broad range of interface standards.


The choice between the Tecan Freedom EVOlyzer 100 and the HUMAN Elisys Quattro depends on specific laboratory needs such as throughput requirements, sample handling capabilities, and integration with existing lab systems. Elisys Quattro may offer higher throughput per run and precise pipetting options, while the Freedom EVOlyzer 100 provides more extensive customization for sample capacity. Laboratories should consider these factors alongside the technological support and cost-effectiveness of each system to make an informed decision.
