Sometimes we experience dislocated spots in the analyzing step. Why and what do we do about it?
Dislocated spots should not occur but the spotting procedure is a complex process. Our device works with piezo-technology not getting in contact with the slide as such. If there is a deflection of a single spot, it might not be detected during our internal quality control. MIA should alert in such cases – e.g., giving red circles indicating that customers should check the spot. If it is not clear to which triplicate group the spot belongs I would suggest to flag it as bad. 2 spots are sufficient for getting a positive result.
