VolumeCheck Overview

  1. 1. VolumeCheck
  2. 2. VolumeCheck Technology Overview VolumeCheck SensorStep#1: Sensor detects Step #3: Output data filemeniscus Step #2: VolumeCheck processes plate based on calibration table
  3. 3. VolumeCheck Technology VolumeCheck is a volume inspection VolumeCheck Sensor system utilizing a non-contact sensor to measure the distance between the Sensor Measures: Sensor-to-sample distance sensor and the sample meniscus in a Example: 15mm = 350uL tube or well plate – Output data is the distance measured Well Plate Position between sensor and solution level
  4. 4. VolumeCheck Applications and Customers• Typical Application – Production monitoring system – Quality control system – Compound or sample library volume/inventory management tool• Typical Customers – XL20 customers with no scale – Reagent/Oligonucleotide Synthesis – Compound sample laboratories – Biobanks or Tissue banks
  5. 5. VolumeCheck Consumables VolumeCheck operates with SBS standard: – 96 well – 48 well – 24 well – 12 well – Must be uncapped or uncovered
  6. 6. VolumeCheck Hardware FeaturesHardware Features• One non-contact sensor• Detects volume in uncapped well plates and tube racks• Works with water, alcohol, DMSO, and other common laboratory solutions• Labware needs to be greater than 41mm in height – rack adapters availableTwo Models• VolumeCheck 100 - One minute per rack• VolumeCheck 50 – 3 minutes per rack
  7. 7. VolumeCheck Hardware Features• Accuracy: +/- 10mL in 1.4mL tube• Accuracy: +/- 5mL in PCR plates – Accuracy dependent on the type of consumable used – The VolumeCheck sensor detects meniscus surface – Conical and V-Shaped well plates will return accuracy ratings at smaller volumes because less volume is needed to achieve a consistent meniscus. Conical V-Shaped Flat-bottom
  8. 8. VolumeCheck Software Features• Main Processing Screen – Volume Data Displayed – Graphical interface of volume detected • Entire Plate Map • Inspection by Row – Start and Stop anytime – Load calibration table – Select specific wells to read – Apply current data against a different calibration table
  9. 9. VolumeCheck Software Features• Display Settings Screen – Control the visual representation of volume detected – Up to 10 levels of volume intervals• Project Based Workflow – Save software settings as projects for different consumables and applications – Project file includes error handling settings, display settings, and calibration tables in one project file – Helpful for labs using multiple types of labware.
  10. 10. Report Feature• Report Feature – Outputs to computer’s default printer – One page includes – Plate map – Scan data – Rack ID – Time and date – Sample shown right
  11. 11. VolumeCheck – Output FilesVolumeCheck Output File Options Example of VolumeCheck Output file• User-definable selection of data to output • File format - .csv, .txt, or user defined• Customer determines content and order of data
  12. 12. VolumeCheck Calibration Curves Plate Data Creator Utility – Calibration Curve data collected – Plate Maps – Curve Fitting Tools
  13. 13. VolumeCheck Calibration Distance from the sensor to the sample corresponds to a known volume level – Curve represents data points of known volumes vs. distance measured – Curve fitting tools help to fine-tune data for best accuracy
  14. 14. VolumeCheck Calibration Curves VolumeCheck system resolution may be influenced by:  Differences in labware such as conical, v-shaped, or flat-bottom well plates and tubes  Droplets on the wall of a tube or well  Air bubbles in sample  Plate-to-plate dimensional variations  Curve should closely represent the concentration of samples
  15. 15. VolumeCheck Rack AdaptersHow to measure for correct adapter height:Consumable Plate Height + Adapter Plate Height = 41-48mm
  16. 16. Examples of VolumeCheck Rack Adapters Shallow Well Rack Adapter Medium Well Rack Adapter VolumeCheck with Rack Adapter 2mL Screw Cap Tube Holder See BioMicroLab Price Book for part numbers Matrix 750uL Rack Adapter
  17. 17. VolumeCheck Models• VolumeCheck 50 – 3 minutes per rack – Compatible with SBS formatted well plates and tube racks – Research environment or labs with low throughput – Consumables up to 52mm in height• VolumeCheck 100 – One minute per rack – Compatible with SBS formatted well plates and tube racks – Production type environment with high throughput – Consumables up to 52mm in height• Price Includes – VolumeCheck robot, VolumeCheck software, VolumeCheck Manual, and Quick Start Guide• Rack adapters are quoted separately• VolumeCheck ActiveX Tool Kit
  18. 18. VolumeCheck Specifications• System Specifications – VolumeCheck Dimensions: 10.5” H x 10.3” W x 17.0” D – Weight: 27 lbs – Electrical: 110-220 VAC 50/60Hz• Computer Specifications – Dell P4 with Windows XP/Vista/7 – 512MB RAM – Optional: Linear Bar Code Scanner for scanning racks IDs
