QC Tool Qualifies and Quantifies Tecan Laser Scanners
Product News Oct 19, 2005
Tecan has announced the launch of LaserCheck quality assurance tool, designed to ensure continued performance of Tecan's complex LS and LS Reloaded series of microarray scanners by comprehensively testing the optical, mechanical and electronic systems.
LaserCheck operates a 45 minute, 100 point diagnostic test using a wide-spectrum fluorescent dye, which is resistant to laser bleaching, to check the multiple lasers present in the LS series scanners, and provides documented test verification in both electronic and hard copy formats.
Its heightened sensitivity helps users to identify and troubleshoot operational problems, giving them confidence in results and avoiding the false positives or false negatives often seen with standard scanner routines.
