Acoustic liquid handling prevents a pernicious error that is wasting time, costing money and generating misleading results in drug development.

Significant systemic errors in high-throughput screening of compounds (HTS) are generated by the use of pipettes and serial dilution processes. These errors, which include high rates of both false positive and false negative results, can mislead researchers on which compounds will make the best drug candidates and misdirect the development of subsequent compounds. The problem is widespread and deeply entrenched.
