Application Note: Artel MVS as a Tool For Measuring Liquid Mixing Efficacy in Microplates
26 March 2021

Homogeneity of solutions in microplates plays a crucial role in assay effectiveness, yet is an area of assay method development and verification that is often overlooked. Without ensuring that solutions have been effectively mixed, it is possible for non‐homogenous samples to be used for subsequent assay steps leading to aspiration of very concentrated or very dilute aliquots. For assay results to be truly trustworthy, every part of the methodology employed needs to be assessed for efficacy and repeatability. This application note describes how the ARTEL MVS® Multichannel Verification System can be used as a tool for measuring the efficacy of liquid mixing protocols.
