Improve NGS and qPCR assay success rates and boost productivity
Whether part of a discovery or diagnostics program, NGS and qPCR assays are increasingly being used for making critical decisions. Find out how Artel can help ensure the quality of this important data while keeping workflows flowing.
Automate genomic and NGS assays faster
The MVS aids in liquid class optimisation by allowing you to assess volume transfer and mixing at each step of the workflow instead of waiting until the assay is complete. The assay can be optimised more efficiently – saving time, reagents and money.
Ensure regulatory compliance
The MVS is a great tool to ensure that multichannel pipettes and automated liquid handlers are performing consistently by running the QC protocols routinely as mandated by the lab’s regulatory requirements.
Develop and transfer assays efficiently
By ensuring accurate small volume transfers upfront, scientists can accelerate successful assay development. The MVS can help researchers develop new genomic and NGS workflows efficiently. Assay developers can also use the MVS to optimise mixing, leading to improved assay quality and ensuring successful outcomes.
Increase instrument uptime
NGS and other genomics workflows can be complex, and when an automated assay fails, troubleshooting can be time consuming. The MVS can expedite your troubleshooting efforts by quickly evaluating a number of factors including:
- Automated liquid handler accuracy and precision
- Assay conditions such as mixing and serial dilutions
- Assay consumable variability such as disposable tips
- Effect of temperature on reagent dispense
Verify proper pipetting technique with manual genomic assays
Problems with pipetting technique propagate across multi-step procedures, negatively impacting the quality and reproducibility of the final data. The MVS for multichannel pipettes can assess operator performance to ensure all operators are pipetting consistently.
For those steps involving single channel pipettes, the PCS Pipette Calibration System can be used to quickly and easily assess and correct these factors.
