Automating Your Assay Workflow: Working with Non-Ideal Solutions

Overview

As the number of assays increases, as well as a higher level of scrutiny on quality, automation is becoming more prevalent than ever before. Automation operating at its best can increase throughput by providing around-the-clock testing and improve repeatability by performing tedious yet critical tasks. However, there are several challenges that affect operational efficiency, while others affect assay performance. This presentation focuses on assay performance, the manual to automation transfer as well as the automated liquid handling validation processes.
