Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 13, 2014

The main objectives of “Multi-Channel Pipettor QC Trends 2014” to understand end-user opinion on the implementation of QC measures when using multi-channel pipettors and to track the increasing use of/interest in dispense verification systems. Multi-channel pipettors are essential tools in most life science laboratories today. Yet the impact of undertaking quality control (QC) measures (e.g. to verify the accuracy and precision of the volume dispensed) on improving data quality, enhancing productivity/efficiency and reducing experimental failures has only relatively recently been recognized. Understanding how lab users approach the issue of pipettor QC is important as the industry struggles to adopt standards for automated pipetting. Survey responses were geographically split: 43% Europe; 38% North America; 7% Japan; 6% Asia (excluding Japan & China); 4% Rest of World; and 2% China.

As per the report “Multi-Channel Pipettor QC Trends 2014” the median annual budget allocated for multi-channel pipettor QC today (2014) was $2.5K-$5K. The breakdown of this budget in components was reported. Greatest spending was currently allocated to outsourced calibration/verification/QC. The median likelihood respondents will purchase a system to enable multi-channel pipettor QC over the next 2 years was unlikely (0%-10% probability).

The majority have used a fee-for-service provider to calibrate/verify multi-channel pipettor dispensing. Provider will also service and repair faulty pipettor was ranked the biggest motivator for considering using a fee-for-service provider to calibrate/verify multi-channel pipettor dispensing. The median likelihood respondents will outsource multi-channel pipettor QC to a fee-for-service provider over the next 2 years was quite possibly (10-50% probability).

The report, available for purchase at http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/contacts/purchase?rname=169009, looked at the following aspects of multi-channel pipettor QC as practiced today (2014) and in a few cases as predicted for the future (2016):

  •     The application areas that best describes respondent’s use of multi-channel pipettors
  •     Importance placed on multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     Main motivators to implement or perform regular multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     How pipettor QC is routinely undertaken today
  •     Aspects of pipettor QC that are routinely checked/verified
  •     Frequency of undertaking pipettor QC
  •     Happiness with what is generally available for determining multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     Biggest limitations/problems posed by existing pipettor QC methods/systems
  •     Awareness of any promising home-brew methodologies for pipettor QC
  •     Use of known commercial products for pipettor QC
  •     Type of hand-held and automated multi-channel pipettors respondents most want to QC/verify
  •     Reasonable and maximum price-points to perform dye-based pipettor QC in house
  •     Are commercial systems value for money; level of spending allocated to multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     Breakdown of multi-channel pipettor QC budget
  •     Likelihood of purchasing a system to enable multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     Use of fee-for-service providers to calibrate/verify multi-channel pipettor dispensing
  •     Main motivators for using a fee-for-service provider
  •     Likelihood will outsource multi-channel pipettor QC
  •     Awareness of a pipettor’s calibration certificate, manufacturer’s recommendations for pipettor QC and how pipettor manufacturers should support QC
  •     Respondents under pressure to implement pipettor QC
  •     Any good reason not to implement pipettor QC
  •     How upfront investment costs of implementing pipettor QC are justified
  •     Would an ISO standard for automated pipettor systems and their QC make any difference to respondent’s work
  •     Putting pipetting QC in context of the overall error/variability in a biological assay
  •     Any unmet needs in multi-channel pipettor QC that respondents would like to see addressed by service providers.

Most respondents thought commercial products/systems for pipettor QC were not good value for money, i.e. they were too expensive and they would not purchase. The median annual budget allocated for multi-channel pipettor QC today (2014) was $2.5K-$5K. The breakdown of this budget in components was reported. Greatest spending was currently allocated to outsourced calibration/verification/QC. The median likelihood respondents will purchase a system to enable multi-channel pipettor QC over the next 2 years was unlikely (0%-10% probability). The majority have used a fee-for-service provider to calibrate/verify multi-channel pipettor dispensing. Provider will also service and repair faulty pipettor was ranked the biggest motivator for considering using a fee-for-service provider to calibrate/verify multi-channel pipettor dispensing. The median likelihood respondents will outsource multi-channel pipettor QC to a fee-for-service provider over the next 2 years was quite possibly (10-50% probability).
