Simplifying Assay Development and Optimization while Minimizing Costs

Webinar Date
  • Thu November 16, 2023
    10:00 AM 1 hour

Assay development and optimization are crucial steps in drug discovery, diagnostics, and life sciences research. As assay complexity and throughput increase, the need for accuracy, efficiency, and reproducibility grows. Automated liquid handling is an essential tool for achieving these goals, but the ideal instrument must be able to execute complex liquid handling steps, simplify the process of liquid class optimization, achieve higher throughputs while minimizing costs, maintain suspension homogeneity, and prevent cross-contamination.  

In this webinar, FORMULATRIX will discuss solutions to these challenges and review case studies of how their instruments incorporate into diverse assay development workflows.

The MANTIS and TEMPEST are automated non-contact dispensers that utilize novel microdiaphragm pump technology to precisely dispense volumes down to 100 nanoliters. The F.A.S.T., a next-generation positive-displacement liquid handler, complements these systems in the low volume ranges and helps streamline assay development and optimization for genomics, proteomics, and multi-omics.

By attending this webinar, your audience will learn:

About the benefits to both your laboratory efficiency along with very serious return on investment that the FORMULATRIX MANTIS, TEMPEST, or F.A.S.T. systems can help provide.

About your webinar speaker: 

As the Assistant Director of Liquid Handling at FORMULATRIX, Michael applies his passion for engineering and engineering management to the product and project management oversight of the liquid handling and automation product lines, leading 10 product managers and engineers to develop new features and products lines in the portfolio and launch new products in the liquid handling markets.

Michael earned a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, after completing a Masters and Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from the same. He began his career as a development engineer at PerkinElmer, where he then gained valuable experience in microfluidic and robotic R&D management as well as operations value engineering project management in a variety of engineering and leadership roles.

Who should attend this event?

This webinar is ideally suited for Lab technicians, Automation Engineers, Lab directors, lab managers, and research scientists.
