Today’s scientists rely on both biochemical and cell-based in vitro assays for their research. Critical parameters for achieving success with these assays include understanding the assay dynamics, the instrumentation involved in read­ing the assay, and, in the case of cell-based assays, understanding how the environment in which the cells are grown impacts cellular physiology. Factors such as microplate geometry, density, surfaces, and instrumentation all play impor­tant roles in the success of the assay. In this seminar, we will discuss ways to enhance your assay performance. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Microplate selection and its role in the success of the assay
  • Important considerations for liquid handling
  • The importance of tips to your overall assay
  • Choosing the correct tip for your liquid handling needs
  • The importance of choosing the correct instrumentation and settings to run your assay
