Webinar Description:

Whether you are new to automation or are an experienced user, choosing a new automated liquid handler (ALH) can be a daunting task. There are a lot of choices with many functions at any budget to consider. This is especially challenging for scientists new to automation. There has been a significant push since early 2020 to increase diagnostic testing throughput, most of which can be accomplished by automation. This webinar addresses the many factors that go into choosing an ALH and how to pick the system that best serves the needs of your lab. Dr. Hentz also discusses how to verify your liquid handler performance after it arrives, which will consider your assay volumes, your assay solutions and labware options.

What you will learn:

  • Important considerations leading to choosing an ALH
  • The difference between manufacturing specifications and your requirements
  • Why it is critical to measure the performance within the context of your assay
