Overview

ArtelWare™ Overview

Used in combination with Artel Data Manager software, ArtelWare provides process control charts for each instrument derived from the standardized well-by-well measurements collected by the Artel MVS. The application additionally provides a dashboard view of the calibration status of each instrument in the laboratory, including the MVS, with a direct connection to specific calibration run data. All information is stored conveniently in the cloud to allow you to access your data from any device wherever you are.

Complete View

The My Lab dashboard in ArtelWare gives a complete view of the status and last measured performance for all liquid handling devices assessed by the Artel MVS in the laboratory. Additionally, all calibration data collected for the MVS Calibrator Plate can be accessed from this dashboard. Reports are uploaded to ArtelWare from the MVS.  Passing devices are flagged in green while failing devices are flagged in red. Performance influencing events are logged in alternate colors.

Summary Reporting

Well-by-well volume information is viewable in ArtelWare in the Test Report. Heat mapping of the data highlights trending patterns in dispensed volume. Selecting a data point on the trend analysis graph also grants access to this view allowing exploration into specific causes for performance at any event.


Trend Analysis

Data from MVS Test Reports are used to produce trend analysis charts in ArtelWare. Data points are graphed over time with upper and lower action limits for accuracy and precision for each device. Limits are defined as a percentage of the total tolerance and may be adjusted by the user. Performance influencing events are logged on the trend analysis charts with color-coded vertical lines based on the date of the event. Custom filters may be applied to the data allowing grouping based on date, device type or target volume.


Calendar of Events

All Verifications with Artel MVS, their status, as well as performance influencing events are logged with color-coded shading in ArtelWare’s calendar function. Individual test reports are also viewable from this page.
