Creating and Testing Custom Alternative Solutions
By Albert, K. | Application Note
Custom test liquids using assay-specific reagents can be prepared and employed to assess volume transfer performance of a liquid handler using the Artel MVS® Multichannel Verification System. This application note describes general methods for creating and testing custom test solutions, referred to as alternative test solutions. In general, an aqueous dye-based MVS Stock Solution is combined with a solvent-of-interest to create the alternative test solution. The volume range for testing an alternative solution in specific plate types is shown in column three of Table 1.
