The liquid handling component of assay variability is often underappreciated yet can have a significant impact on data quality. Many laboratories rely on precision alone to assess and mitigate assay variability. However, both the accuracy and precision of the liquid handler need to be measured in order to reduce overall assay variability. To improve data quality even further, the same technology can be applied to study the assay workflow, ensuring successful assay transfer and saving time, money and resources.
In this webinar Dr. Nathaniel Hentz, Director of Scientific Market Development at Artel, and William Ivory, Senior Scientist and Automation Lead at Discern DX, present two examples illustrating how to mitigate assay variability:
