Systematic procedures are crucial to delivering accurate results to your patients. We can streamline your processes to meet quality and productivity goals.

Manage Your Workload More Efficiently

The constant emergence of new diseases pushes the expansion for new lab tests and increases test volumes. This brings increasing pressure for faster detection, notably in the field of infectious diseases and cancer. Automation becomes a necessity to improve productivity and ensure consistency, thereby decreasing turnaround time and replacing manual error-prone tasks.

We saw the limitations of gravimetric, fluorometric, and single-dye photometric volume verification methods and responded by developing this fast, easy-to-use, and robust volume measurement method. Using ratiometric photometry with specially dyed solutions provides the foundation for our extremely accurate volume measurement systems.

Comply With Guidelines and Regulations

Transferring an assay from the bench to a robot may not be straight forward, but with our Artel MVS® and PCS®, you will be ready to show that your processes and reports are in alignment with standards and guidelines when your inspection comes up.

In labs that employ single-channel pipettes, our Artel PCS out-performs other calibration methods in consistency, speed, simplicity, accuracy and precision—even at volumes as low as 0.1 µL.

For multichannel pipettes, volume verification can be an especially time-consuming task, with some labs sacrificing the ability to calibrate each individual channel for speed. With our Artel MVS, you can turn a one-hour or more ordeal into a 5-minute process.

The Artel MVS simplifies fluid verification of all automated liquid handlers and multichannel pipettes. The system is fast, calculates all plate and well statistics (Relative Inaccuracy, Coefficient of Variation, Standard Deviation and Mean) and it is simple to set up and use. For all of its capabilities and low-cost point...the MVS is one of the best value purchases I have ever made for my lab.

The Artel MVS makes it so easy to do a monthly verification that the 96 channel CORE head on my Hamilton Vantage is dispensing the correct volumes. Doing the confirmation gravimetrically would be so time consuming, but using the Artel dyes and the MVS makes it something one person can do in a single morning. The software is easy to use, and the instrument has not had any maintenance issues.

Pfizer

We use the PCS pipette calibration system. It has always been super reliable and accurate, and we have never had a single issue in the 8 years I have worked with it. The kits containing the solutions for the PCS are customizable, so you don't have to buy solutions you don't need. We do performance checks on our pipettes on a daily basis, so we could not live without it! It makes our jobs so much easier too!

The Artel PCS makes checking the pipetting proficiency of new hires quick and easy. It's also great for checking pipettes that may not be functioning properly.

The Artel MVS has been a huge help for our lab in validating volumes on new automated liquid handlers. Always gives consistent results, easy to use, software is extremely straightforward, and any time we have an issue, it's super easy to get help from the Artel team. Thank you!

The MVS system is extremely useful for periodic performance QC testing of high-throughput liquid handlers, high-throughput liquid handler calibration, and various liquid handler/single channel pipette tip type/lot QC. The MVS system requires minimal maintenance and MVS manager software is intuitive to use and flexible to set up various plate layouts to meet user’s need. The customer service is very responsive and helpful. They provide a notification for calibrator plate re-certification annually ...

The [Artel MVS] product is accurate and reliable. With the addition of the pre-owned models of MVS readers, it also becomes affordable. The expansion of the dye solutions to include MasterMix and Serum along with their original aqueous offering makes Artel a definitive liquid class setup solution. The FSE performing setup and the account manager were on-time, responsive, and supportive during install and (most importantly) afterwards.

Kevin Kim

Avellino Labs

The Artel application scientist is easy to work with, knowledgeable about interpreting test data and giving advice, and flexible to help onsite if needed. I would recommend the Artel MVS because it saves time and material cost. Most important is having a standard method to calibrate different pipettes and optimize liquid class on automated liquid handlers while managing the sources of variability systematically.

The Artel PCS fulfills our requirements on ISO compliant pipette calibration and testing. Results are reproducible and variance is lower than in manual process. Personnel is easily trained on the device. Process is faster than manual process.

Andreas Heider

Axolabs GmbH

The MVS system is fairly intuitive to use. Not only can we use this for our internal automated liquid handler volume verification, tip test and calibration work, we have been using the system to offer external volume verification service to our collaborators. The system is very durable without significant issues and easy to maintain. MVS reagent orders are always processed and delivered in a timely manner. Our regional specialist periodically checks in to ask if the system is working as expected.

The [Artel MVS] is easy to use, gives accurate and reliable results. It's a great way to quickly determine the functioning of the automation systems that we install and maintain.

Once we brought [the Artel MVS] into the lab, we realized we could push to small volumes. We typically work beyond the liquid handler’s specifications, and we can do this because we have Artel to verify their performance.
