Do You Really Know What Your Robot Is Doing?

Technical Resource

It may be argued that the largest challenge presented by using a liquid handling robot is the assumption that the robot is doing what it is “supposed” to be doing. The robot may be doing exactly what the user told it to do, but is that really what the user wanted? The examples presented in […]

Mixing It Up

Technical Resource

Mixers are great – they give us a chance to meet new people, and while some may consider them a waste of time, they can spark ideas and relationships that can change lives. In the assay world, mixers enable reagents and samples to be mixed together so that reactions can occur successfully. In this application […]
