Expert Insight: How to Optimize Assay Automation: Overcome Barriers to Assays Success

Register for our upcoming webinar with laboratory automation experts for advice to improve your assay workflow

11 Apr 2019

The liquid handling component of assay variability is often underappreciated or not directly measured yet can have a significant impact on data quality. Many laboratories rely on precision alone to assess and mitigate assay variability. However, both the accuracy and precision of the liquid handler need to be measured in order to reduce overall assay variability. To improve data quality even further, the same technology can be applied to study the assay workflow (e.g., process optimization), ensuring successful assay transfer — saving time, money and resources. 

In an upcoming SelectScience webinar, automation experts, William Ivory, Senior Scientist and Automation Lead at DiscernDX, and Dr. Nathaniel Hentz, of Artel, present two examples illustrating these principles: optimization considerations for automating a binding protein assay and workflow optimization for a next-generation sequencing (NGS) assay. 


Attend this webinar event to:

  • Understand the impact of and how to detect liquid handling variability on assays
  • Understand the importance of studying key liquid handling parameters during the assay optimization process
  • Learn how to improve an assay workflow by studying the assay process
  • Learn the importance of ensuring the performance of your liquid handlers during an assay transfer
