Recently, one of my customers brought up a concern that she had seen through other lab instrumentation during her experience in the lab. She asked how we deal with the particular evaporation effects of protein or other samples, especially when it comes to our VROC initium which handles 40 samples or up to 96 samples. So we put it to the test.
Our team of engineers conducted the test with two separate types of samples: Glycerol in water and BSA (Bovine Serum Albumin) in water. The customer requested BSA in water and we also included glycerol in water because the smallest changes in concentration of glycerol could impact the viscosity significantly. With this knowledge, we believed it was the best method to determine if evaporation is something that is existent.
