Join Artel for a virtual User Group Meeting on September 22nd at 2pm EDT lead by our global account manager Katrine Kelly, as we meet for an interactive dialogue on users of Artel technology and the variety of applications.
Our group discussion will start with presentations from two featured guest speakers. Zach Wilkey, Laboratory Manager at ARUP Laboratories, will relate how the PCS and MVS help increase quality, set up standardization, and improve workflow efficiencies since his bioengineering team took over the calibration and centralization of over 3,000 pipettes from more than 60 laboratories. Our second speaker, Bryan Pasqualucci, Application Scientist at New York Genome Center (NYGC) will present two case examples demonstrating how he and his team use the MVS at their facility for routine performance verification and liquid class optimization, thereby reducing instrument downtime and increasing assay efficiency.
The second part of the discussion will highlight two new products from Artel. Nicole Nguyen, Software Product Manager, will introduce the new combination software, ArtelWare™, that can help streamline your lab processes by managing the inventory and performance of your automated liquid handlers, single and multichannel pipettes, and people all in one platform. Melinda Gold, Product Manager, will present the new QualAssure™ Solutions for MVS, including PCRMix™, SerumSub™ and PlasProxy™, essential allies to optimize your automated liquid handlers with the ideal liquid for your specific application.
