Laboratory automation equipment makers need to stay flexible in their outsourcing strategies because their make-versus-buy decision drivers can change over time — a good reason to conduct periodic reviews to validate the continued relevance of their outsourcing decisions.
Pipetting serial dilutions reproducibly can be difficult because it is a time consuming and consequently error prone methodology, especially in 384 well plates. Based upon the assumption that your pipettes are properly maintained and calibrated, the human influence has the largest impact on pipetting results.
Reliable and reproducible results in real-time PCR are prerequisite for trustworthy analysis in various application fields. Beside a high-end real-time PCR device, optimal lab equipment for the preparative steps is required to achieve best performance. Pipettes that are used to prepare reaction mixes play a crucial role.
Are you annoyed with inaccurate pipetting results?
