What are QualAssure solutions?
Artel has evolved our brand to better align with our values and the customers we serve, and to symbolize where we are today. But the Artel mission has remained the same – to help labs achieve their goals for quality, productivity, and compliance. One of the changes made during the transition was consolidating the array of verification solutions under the new QualAssure label. The QualAssure name describes the assurance of accurate, precise, and reproducible data that customers have come to expect from using Artel technology, products and services. The products themselves are the same proven formulations and volumes as users have come to depend on and customers do not need to change their ordering processes.
Can other plates be used with the MVS System?
Yes, however traceability of the results will only be maintained if MVS Verification Plates are used. Additional library plates complete with manufacturer’s defined well dimensions and product numbers are listed in the Plate Library.
Can the Verification Plates be washed and reused?
No. The MVS is specifically manufactured and optimized to minimize error. Reusing a Verification Plate potentially introduces a source for error.
Can a Verification Plate be re-read?
Yes. Once a Verification Plate scan has completed, the filled wells in the plate can be re-read within 60 minutes** provided justification is entered.After 60 minutes, the wells that were read are locked out and cannot be re-read. Empty wells not already read can be read using a different layout in any future verification.
