Understanding Barriers to Successful Assay Optimization with an Eye Toward Automation
29 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 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.

We will present two examples illustrating these principles: Optimization considerations for automating a binding protein assay and workflow optimization for a next generation sequencing (NGS) assay.

  • 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
