Product News: Berthold Detection Systems GmbH to Introduce the New Zoom Series of Microplate Washers and Washer-Dispensers at MipTec 2010

15 Sep 2010

Developed by the Berthold affiliate Titertek Instruments Inc., the Zoom Microplate Washer represents a flexible, rapid and easy-to-use instrument for reliable plate processing. The 96-fold wash/aspirate head is compatible with both 96- and 384-well plates and various programming options ensure maximum flexibility to easily set-up individual wash routines: From fast and vigorous ELISA washing to slow and gentle, low-adherent cell washing, the Zoom Microplate Washer delivers optimum results for a wide variety of applications.

The Zoom HT Microplate Washer is equipped with a built-in microplate stacker to support unattended high throughput plate processing. The stacker seamlessly shuttles the plate between input magazine, wash position and output magazine providing unmatched plate transfer speeds.

The optional Dispense Module makes the series of microplate washers cost efficient combination instruments for reagent dispense. The proprietary Titertek syringe drive and positive displacement syringes guarantee for highest precision and accuracy of dispensing. The dispense accuracy is independent from reagent viscosity. Different syringe sizes and corresponding dispense manifolds and tips allow the use of the same Dispense Module for bulk dispensing and low-volume dispensing.
