Product News: New 405™ LS Microplate Washer Perfect for Robotic Systems

08 May 2012

BioTek introduces the 405™ LS Series Microplate Washer for 96- and 384-well microplate washing. This intuitive and flexible microplate washer is especially suited for robotic installations, including BioTek's BioStack™ Microplate Stackers and third-party systems, or remote operation. The 405 LS may be operated via a keypad interface or by a computer with powerful Liquid Handling Control™ (LHC™) software.

Integrating many of the same features as BioTek's renowned ELx405™ Microplate Washers, the 405 LS may be used with vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation bead-based assays, and includes patented Dual-Action™ manifold for independent aspirate/dispense control and Ultrasonic Advantage™ for unattended wash manifold maintenance. Additionally, automated internal buffer switching and quick release manifolds add to overall flexibility for applications ranging from vigorous washing protocols to gentle washing for loosely adherent cell monolayers.
