Application Note: Painless Nanoliter-Transfer Accuracy Inspection for Busy Screeners
17 April 2007

Acoustic droplet ejection first provided low-nanoliter transfers for high-throughput screening applications in 2004. At that time, there were no methods that could quickly and accurately determine the accuracy and precision of the transfer volume. This poster demonstrates the use of ARTEL’s Multichannel Verification System (MVS®) to measure transfer volumes of DMSO-based sample solutions down to 100 nL in a standard 384-well assay plate. Accuracy and precision data for multiple Labcyte Echo® liquid handlers were then compared.
