About this webinar
Label-free compound profiling plays a major role in pharmaceutical research and calls for novel approaches for sample preparation in the design of automated liquid handling systems.
In this webinar, based on field experiences with our research partners, Analytik Jena will provide an overview of application demands for a reliable sample preparation automation – from a small and easy-to-use workstation, to a fully automated integration solution by Analytik Jena.
Throughout, our speaker will highlight the challenges that need to be overcome to improve lab processes, including liquid handling, leading to increased quality of results.
Learning outcomes of this webinar
- The advantages of laboratory automation workflows
- Challenges during the optimisation of automated MALDI-TOF sample preparation
- How to successfully overcome hardware, software and labware challenges
- Recommendations in optimisation of liquid handling parameters.
