The Artel Digest: Stay informed about optimizing your assay workflow and liquid handling processes
The Digest brings you technical resources, expert tips, guidance on regulations and standards, as well as discussions with key industry leaders – that focus on optimized assay workflows, automated liquid handling and pipetting processes.
People have many reasons for why not to have their pipettes serviced. Whether they don’t have the time, or can’t part with their pipettes because of workload, Dr. Nathaniel Hentz addresses this topic and discusses why it is vital to the efficiency and data integrity of labs.
Whether you’re converting a manual assay into an automated one to increase throughput and/or reproducibility, or moving an assay into a QC environment, a few pre-transfer planning steps can go a long way to smoothing out the process.
Tip immersion depth is one of those many little details that you need to think about when you pipette, in order to get the best performance. Like many of the other issues with pipetting technique, it has to do with the physics of pipetting.
