Characterization of the FlexJet® with Multi-Array Dispense for Reduction of Chemistry Waste Due to Overage
Application Note Feb 19, 2016
The Nexar® System is a flexible and automated high throughput laboratory system for rapid analysis in miniaturized reaction volumes. Nexar includes the FlexJet non-contact dispense jet that provides high speed liquid handling for building reactions in Array Tape®. A set of experiments was conducted with FlexJet to analyze the volume of reagent waste used with multi-array dispense and to evaluate data quality. The study demonstrated the efficacy and economic advantages of using FlexJet with multi-array dispense. Results show the Nexar System with FlexJet’s multi-array dispense feature can significantly reduce master mix consumed as dead volume.
