Verifying dispensing performance & optimizing accuracy on a Redd&Whyte Preddator nano-bulk reagent dispenser using the Artel MVS®

ABSTRACT:
Nano Bulk Reagent dispenser  DropletsThis application note discusses an approach to verify and optimize the dispensing accuracy on a Redd & Whyte Preddator1 dispenser using measurement information from the Artel MVS®. The Preddator is able to dispense any number of liquid types and the MVS supports verifying both tip-to-tip precision and accuracy values for nearly all liquid handlers.2,3 The focus of this application note is on volume verification and subsequent optimization; it does not speak to the quality of volume transfer performance you should expect from any Preddator. Pipetting accuracy can be improved in multiple ways on the Preddator, such as by adjusting …
