Speed up Assay Development Time when Testing Plasma and Other Viscous Liquids

Webinar Description:

When performing plasma or serum based assays, or genomics assays, volume transfers are of the utmost importance to ensure accurate data. Those viscous liquids are hard to pipet, and just a few nanoliters can skew your data into false negative or false positive results. But for both physicians and scientists, the consequences can be disastrous, as accurate data and conclusive test results are critical to making the right decisions.

In a world where the workload constantly increases, and the number of samples processed becomes greater each day, how do you ensure accurate and precise liquid transfer by your liquid handler, especially when using viscous liquids? Liquid class optimization for automated liquid handlers is a critical programming step in your assay set up.

In this webinar, Dr. Melinda Gold, product manager at Artel, describes how the Multichannel Verification System (MVS), in combination with Artel QualAssure solutions that mimic plasma, serum, or PCR master mix, can not only make your liquid handler calibration, verification and optimization easier and faster, but also provide you with the most accurate and precise results.

Dr. Gold’s presentation is illustrated with studies and case examples showing the detrimental outcomes of not using the right solutions for the optimization of your liquid handling platforms. She also covers how the QualAssure solutions allow you to seamlessly create reliable liquid classes without having to consume expensive reagents or risk wasting samples, while mitigating the variability that comes from incorrectly dispensed volume.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The importance of using a solution that mimics your assay samples and/or reagents when optimizing your liquid handler
  • How to speed up assay development by testing and adjusting liquid handler parameters
  • To easily verify liquid delivery volumes for your critical assays to ensure reliable data and test results across multiple assays and industries
