Beau Hunt, Automation System Specialist DuPont Pioneer – GMT lab Johnston, IA Sponsored by DuPont Pioneer
A system for detecting reference dyes in MicroTiter Plates and Array Tape for use as an in line process verification using the principals of standard addition. The system consists of hardware device, the fluorescent dyes and the samples to be tracked through a process. The hardware device consists of a light source, imaging device, industrial electronic control system and a computer analysis system. When used together the system allows for the tracking of sample transfers from plate to plate to Array Tape throughout a lab process. Sample transfer tracking can be either qualitative or quantitative in nature allowing the users to pick the level of tracking needed.
