Application Note: Ethanol Solutions for MVS® Volume Verifications
27 November 2015
Ethanol is used in pharmaceutical and other life science laboratories for innumerable experimental protocols. Ethanol is often combined and/or used as an additive in aqueous-based solutions and these solutions are used for many types of experiments. In many cases, accurate transfer of the target volumes is vital to the integrity of the assay. More importantly, many laboratories do not have an easy and rapid way to verify the accuracy and precision of the pipetting equipment. This application note describes a method to employ the Artel Multichannel Verification System (MVS®) to measure the volume of ethanol solution transferred from a pipettor under test into a microtiter plate.
