Application Note: Performance Evaluation for SCIENIONs sciDROP PICO and sciDROP NANO Technology Using the Artel Dual-dye Ratiometric Photometry
17 September 2017

An essential component of today's research in life science is the use of automated liquid handling equipment. The transferred volumes are becoming increasingly small down to nano- and picoliter range. Verifying the absolute transferred volume and the well-to-well reproducibility is important to ensure the quality of the process but there are only a few methods available that can quickly and accurately measure dispensed volumes in this low range. The results presented in this application note show outstanding accuracy and reproducibility of the sciFLEXARRAYER in dispensing of volumes ranging from 5 nl to 1000 nl.
