At LabAutomation2010, Artel to Launch Latest Technology for Optimizing Automated Liquid Handlers
Product News Nov 25, 2009
At LabAutomation2010, Artel will launch new features of the ARTEL MVS® Multichannel Verification System, an objective performance assessment and optimization tool for automated liquid handlers.
New developments enhance measurement data comparability, increase the speed of volume verification, and allow users to reduce the overall variability of their laboratory processes.
The MVS will be demonstrated with automated liquid handlers from Beckman Coulter, Tecan, Agilent, and Hamilton in Artel’s booth (#451) at LabAutomation2010, Palm Springs, California, January 24-26, 2010. The ARTEL MVS provides information on volumes transferred by each channel of an automated liquid handler in one procedure.
"There are a number of exciting developments in automated liquid handling that will positively alter the world of laboratory science. But operating new technology without an objective measurement tool is essentially like driving a car without a dashboard," said Kirby Pilcher, President, Artel. "Our recent MVS developments are aimed at giving laboratories more powerful information about the performance of their instrumentation. By more fully understanding their automated liquid handlers, laboratories can take steps to measurably improve quality, productivity and data integrity."
Also at LabAutomation, Artel will showcase its Liquid Handler Performance Verification service, in which Artel specialists provide on-site volume transfer performance assessment and optimization for automated liquid handlers.
An additional tool for laboratories looking to improve and verify the performance of their automated liquid handlers is LHTalk (www.lhtalk.org), the interactive forum dedicated exclusively to liquid handling. LHTalk includes user-generated questions and answers, blogs, and links regarding laboratory liquid handling. Artel will have Internet stations in its booth at LabAutomation for visitors to access this website.
