Application Note: Optimizing Accuracy Performance on an Agilent Bravo Platform Using the Artel MVS
26 March 2021

This application note discusses one approach for optimizing pipetting accuracy on an Agilent Bravo liquid handler using MVS® Multichannel Verification System measurement information. Although the MVS system supports verifying both tip-by-tip precision and accuracy values for nearly all liquid handlers the focus of this paper is accuracy measurement and optimization. This application note does not speak to the quality of volume transfer performance you should expect from any Bravo; instead it focuses on the optimization process only. This application note is intended to show that volume transfer accuracy can be improved by simply adjusting the calibration factors within the method’s liquid class, which is a process that also works for other liquid handler types.
