Artel MVS as a Tool For Measuring Liquid Mixing Efficacy in Microplates
Bookmark and Share


This application note describes how the ARTEL MVS® Multichannel Verification System can be used as a tool for measuring the efficacy of liquid mixing protocols.

In addition, the data presented herein highlights the importance of ensuring that effective mixing of the solutions dispensed into a microplate has occurred during every step of the assay procedure. This is particularly poignant as experiments conducted within the Artel laboratory show that diffusion-based mixing can take as long as 24 hours, and even a plate shaker set at 2200 RPM can take close to 10 minutes to achieve complete mixing if the shaker protocol has not been optimized.
