Components

Artel 800TSNB Plate Reader

The Artel 800TSNB Plate Reader has been customized for the MVS by including wavelength-specific interference filters for measuring the absorbance values of Sample Solutions. The plate reader was selected for inclusion with the MVS because of its robust performance and reliability. The reader measures the absorbance values from each well of a 96-well plate at two wavelengths in approximately two minutes. A 384-well plate, in comparison, requires approximately four minutes.

MVS Plate Reader


Calibrator Plate

The MVS Calibrator Plate is a unique, highly sensitive device used to account for local drift in the daily performance of each MVS Plate Reader. Drift is removed from the MVS calculations by correlating the absorbance measurements from a Plate Reader with those made by the reference spectrophotometer at the Artel Laboratory, which is traceable to national and international standards.

The MVS Data Manager software obtains critical information from the plate bar code concerning the absorbance of each standard as read in the reference spectrophotometer. The Calibrator Plate therefore allows any compatible Plate Reader in the field to generate standardized, traceable results at any location in the world.

The plate is composed of an aluminum frame with alignment apertures and a set of four sealed, custom-manufactured, precision cuvette absorbance standards. These solution-filled standards are manufactured to strict specifications which cover the working absorbance range of the system. This allows for more accurate wavelength-specific corrections of the plate reader for performing MVS calculations. Additionally, temperature dependencies of the Sample Solutions are accounted for by the Calibrator Plate. A pane of neutral density glass is included to monitor any unlikely change in absorbance of the solution-filled standards.

Plate Shaker

The plate shaker is interfaced with the MVS Portable Computer to ensure consistent mixing of the MVS Sample Solutions.

Bar Code Reader

The high-performance, hand-held 2D bar code scanner allows for easy recall of liquid handler devices and ease of use to enter required MVS bar code data into the Data Manager software.

96-well and 384-well Verification Plates
Verification Plates are black, optical-bottom microplates that significantly improve the overall measurement capabilities of the MVS. When a microplate lot is manufactured, a statistical sampling plan is used to pull plates from throughout the manufacturing run. Proportional dilutions for volumes that span the entire MVS volume range are made on balances calibrated with mass standards traceable to national and international standards. These dilutions are used to characterize deviations from ideal performance within the operating absorbance range of the MVS using the sampling of plates. The statistical sampling plan and test method provide measurements representative of each well in that particular plate lot.

MVS Verification Plates


Sample Solutions
The MVS Sample Solutions are prepared by Artel and conform to rigorous performance specifications. The solutions contain two dyes: red and blue. As shown in the table below , each of the different Sample Solutions is employed to cover a designated target volume range. As the volume-of-interest decreases, the appropriate Sample Solution contains an increased concentration of red dye, thereby maintaining constant signal strength to the plate reader detector. The blue dye is used as an internal standard to measure the solution depth in every well.

MVS Solutions

Aqueous Solutions
The standard MVS Range solutions are aqueous and can measure performance over a wide volume range of 0.0001 to 350 µL.
DMSO Solutions
DMSO has very different physical properties than water it behaves differently when handled by air-displacement pipettors, automated liquid handlers or acoustic droplet ejectors, creating the need for a solvent-specific volume verification method such as that provided by the DMSO Range Solutions for the MVS.The MVS DMSO Range solutions can measure performance over a wide volume range of 0.0001 to 9.999 µL.
Alternative Solutions
Custom test liquids using assay-specific reagents can be prepared and employed to assess volume transfer performance of a liquid handler or multichannel pipettes using the Artel MVS. Aqueous dye-based MVS Stock Solution is combined with a solvent-of-interest to create the alternative test solution.Alternative Solutions can be made for Target volumes between 0.1 and 49.9 µL in a 96 Well Standard Profile plate, or between 0.03 and 9.9 µL in a 384 Well Standard Profile plate.

System Software and Portable Computer
The MVS Data Manager software guides the user through the verification procedure and retrieves the data from the Plate Reader and Bar Code Reader. The data are used to determine liquid handler performance relative to set targets and pass/fail tolerance limits. Out-of-tolerance values are automatically flagged.

It tells you every step using very simple words. You can make up your own scripts for your use or use the ones provided. We began using the MVS system to verify the precision & accuracy of our devices because everything is trackable-the plates, and solutions all have barcodes. These barcodes can be tracked back to a lot number from the manufacturer. I also went through the Artel pipette training, which was very helpful to learn proper technique and our pipetting skills were tested on the MVS system.

The MVS system is a superb in every way. This system is easy to use with minimal use of instructions. Our lab uses the system to check the accuracy and precision of our automation workstations. The MVS has given us a quick way to test and correct for the issues of over pipetting or under pipetting, making our process more efficient. Our robots transfer less than 5ul into 384-well plates, so accuracy and precision is key to all of our assay development and validation pipelines. Introducing the MVS system has allowed the lab staff to perform several tasks with confidence using the automation workstation's. I would suggest to novice users of the system to measure the amount of reagent needed for your transfer and discard the remainder. When reagents are exposed for extended periods we have noticed a decline in accuracy, especially for the low volume transfers.

Questions and Answers

What is the MVS?
The MVS Multichannel Verification System is the first commercially-available volume verification system. It includes equipment, software, Sample Solutions and characterized microtiter plates to allow operators to quickly and easily verify the liquid delivery performance for automated liquid handlers and multichannel pipettes within minutes.
The MVS also allows for multichannel pipette operators to be assessed for pipetting competency and then trained accordingly. The system is suitable for liquid volume measurements from 0.01 µL to 350 µL and dilution measurements up to 1:2048 of the starting material. The MVS is positioned on a mobile workstation to allow for portable, convenient volume verification of pipettors in multiple locations.

How does the MVS work?
MVS employs a dual-dye, dual-wavelength, ratiometric absorbance-based measurement method for calculating the volume of sample dispensed into a well of a microtiter plate.
The results of the verification tests are traceable to national and international standards. Specially formulated Sample Solutions containing dyes of known concentration are dispensed into dimensionally-characterized microtiter plate wells. The plate is mixed on a microtiter plate shaker to ensure homogeneity of samples. Absorbance readings are taken in the plate reader at 520 nm and 730 nm. The system software, MVS Data Manager, creates a summary report containing the calculated dispensed volume for each dispensing tip. Accuracy and precision of the dispensed volumes are measured against user-defined tolerance limits and failing values are flagged in the report. Summary statistics by well, by row, and by column are also contained in the summary report. Results are saved in a secured database using the MVS Data Manager software and are available for printout or export in HTML or XML format.

LESS -
Can the MVS be used to verify any liquid handler?
Artel has designed the MVS to be universally applicable to virtually any liquid handler. Currently, any 1-, 2-, 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 24-, 96- and 384- channel device, such as handheld pipettes or automated liquid handlers, may be checked for volume dispensing performance.
These devices must be capable of dispensing into a standard 96- or 384- well microtiter plate.

LESS -
What is included with the purchase of an MVS?
The MVS is sold as a complete system. The system components include a customized Plate Reader, a unique Calibrator Plate, a microtiter Plate Shaker, a bar code reader, a portable computer with the MVS Data Manager system software, a mobile workstation and a user guide.
On-site system installation and validation are also included with an MVS purchase.

LESS -
Can I use my own microwell plate reader?
No, we do not support the use of other plate readers at this time.
Is the MVS designed to be mobile?
The MVS includes a mobile workstation for convenient verification of equipment in multiple locations throughout a laboratory or facility.
Can the MVS be used to calibrate hand-held multichannel pipettes?
Yes, the MVS is a convenient way to verify the accuracy and precision performance of each independent channel at the same time.
What are the advantages of the MVS over other volume verification methods?
The MVS allows for analysis of accuracy and precision for each independent dispensing channel simultaneously, which saves labor and liquid handler down-time. It is relatively immune to environmental conditions and provides measurements traceable to national and international standards.
The MVS Sample Solutions are manufactured by Artel to tight tolerances using ISO-acknowledged methods. There is no need to generate standard curves. MVS provides standardized results making it possible to compare instrument performance between makes and models of liquid handlers as well as between locations, i.e., 2 µL dispensed by liquid handler X on Tuesday in Boston can be directly compared to 2 µL dispensed by liquid handler Y on Friday in San Diego. Please refer to the MVS White Paper for more information.

LESS -
Is the MVS FDA approved?
The MVS does not require FDA approval because it is not directly associated with human samples or specimens. The MVS results are traceable to national and international standards.
Does the MVS require regular maintenance?
The only regular maintenance required is the recertification of the MVS Calibrator Plate, which has a shelf-life of 1-year. At the one year mark, the Calibrator Plate must be shipped back to Artel for the recertification process.
Aside from Calibrator Plate recertification, the only other routine maintenance required is the occasional replacement of the lamp in the Artel Plate Reader (dependent on plate reader used), which can be easily completed by the user.

LESS -
Does the MVS require a skilled technician?
No. The MVS can be easily used by technicians and scientists of any education level. Artel has done all the work for liquid handler QC to make volume verification fast, easy, and reliable.
MVS Data Manager system software guides the user through the entire volume verification process and all the Sample Solutions are prepared by Artel. The user simply pours the solutions into a reservoir, dispenses the solution with the liquid handler under test, and measures the tip-by-tip volume values using the MVS. Artel performs on-site MVS training on the day the MVS is installed and our Technical Support team is available (by phone, email and/or future support visits).

What types of laboratories use the MVS?
The MVS is used by many different types of laboratories serving many different fields. Basically, it is used wherever laboratories have liquid handlers and wherever they are serious about liquid handling quality control. Customers and laboratories using the MVS include:
1. research and development labs (including HTS, compound management, lead optimization);
2. clinical and reference labs;
3. governmental labs;
4. forensic labs;
5. manufacturers of automated liquid handlers;
6. liquid handling (or automation) engineers;
7. manufacturing labs; and
8. production support labs.

What kind of impact does the MVS have in my laboratory?
The MVS will have a tremendous impact on liquid handler QC in any environment. Concentration of reagents in microtiter plates is volume dependent. If the right volume is not being dispensed, the reagent concentrations could be different as compared to the theoretical values.
Without the right concentrations, the assay results might be called into question or could be falsely interpreted. The MVS offers an advantage for liquid handling QC so that users can trust their assay results.
Here are a few of the many ways the MVS can impact a laboratory or company:
1. parallel efforts within and between labs/sites can be streamlined;
2. experimental, assay and data integrity preserved;
3. laboratory productivity, motivation, and confidence are maintained;
4. GMP/GLP compliance and documentation facilitated;
5.method transfer and setting up automated tasks to deliver the proper (correct) volume facilitated;
6. equipment downtime and costs reduced;
7. the volume verification results are standardized meaning they can be compared regardless of make, model, manufacturer or location of the liquid handler.
