NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Artel said yesterday that Beckman Coulter has adopted the Artel Multichannel Verification System to verify the accuracy and precision of Beckman's automated liquid handling systems used in pharmaceutical and clinical laboratories.
As part of Beckman Coulter's Field Service Operational Qualification Program, an option available to the company's Biomek customers, the MVS provides documentation about system performance, helping laboratories meet compliance and regulatory requirements, Westbrook, Maine-based Artel said.
The MVS is based on proprietary ratiometric photometry technology, which measures light absorption by two specially formulated dyes in order to verify volume, making it especially effective at low volumes, Artel said. The MVS can be applied to Beckman's full portfolio of Biomek Liquid Handlers, ranging from one to 384 channels.
