Support for diverse volume ranges

The MVS consists of equipment, software, aqueous solutions and highly characterized microtiter plates. The system is suitable for liquid volume measurements from 0.1 to 350.0 μL in a 96-well plate format or from 0.01 to 55 μL in a 384- well plate format. A mobile workstation allows for portable, convenient verification of equipment in multiple locations.

Employing a unique, dual-dye photometric method, the Artel MVS conveniently measures the dispensed volume from any 1-, 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 24-, 96-, and 384-channel liquid delivery device in less than ten minutes. The accuracy and precision performance of each dispensing channel is independently calculated and displayed with summary statistics by well, by row and by column.

When using the MVS Verification Plates and an Artel certified Plate Reader, the Artel MVS supports an unbroken chain of traceability to national and international standards.

Results are saved in a secure database on the system’s portable computer using the MVS Data Manager software and are available for printout or export to HTML or XML formats.

Three Easy Steps

Dispense Solutions – Dispense the Sample Solution and Diluent into a Verification Plate and mix.

Read Plate – Measure the absorbance values with the Artel plate reader.

Know Performance – Results indicate the performance of the liquid handler.
