In a recent blog for Tecan.com, Michael Fejtl, Market & Product Manager at Tecan, discussed the importance of ensuring minimal cycle times for assay development.
Fejtl explains the key challenges for reducing cycle times of assay development and offers suggestion on how to solve them.
According to Fejtl, the main elements needed to accelerate assay development and reduce cycle times are:
- Improve temperature control
- Overcome challenges of fluorescence-based assays
- Minimize interference
- Bridge the gap between flexibility and sensitivity in assay miniaturization
- Increase throughput my automating part of the workflow
