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.
Collaborative efforts require shared information. With advances in cloud technology, laboratories are reconsidering methods for data collection, storage and access. Inevitably, the dialog turns to a fundamental question: security.
During assay development it is vital to optimize the assay and determine the effects of liquid handling variability. Precision is easy to measure, and it highlights gross failures within a liquid delivery step.
Pipetting is one of the most common and critical laboratory tasks, and operator technique can directly affect accuracy and precision. Dr. Carle discusses the technique of dispensing a sample from a pipette to a receptacle in detail.
