Variable Volume Assay (CV's)
5 µL Assay
The Tempest's accuracy was analyzed using two formats:

1. A fixed Volume, miniaturized assay comprising of 2 µL of enzyme and 3 µL of substrace.

2. A variable volume assay that requires different volumes of 8 different enzymes.
Tempest boasts CV's less than 5%

The following numbers are the results of a recent enzyme dispensing test run by Vikram Shankar and his team at Lead Discoveries Technologies, EMD Serono Research Institute in Rockland, MA.
