"We did some testing with this washer and were impressed with its overall performance. I think Biotek continues to lead the field of plate washing. They seem to be the name people know for this application. "

"Fantastic plate washer. Processes hundreds of washes for ELISAs with ease and finesse. Manifold moves smoothly and effortlessly across platform. Produces reliable results at breakneck speeds previously un-achievable with manual plate washing. Invaluable part of the bioanalytical chemistry team; would take out a second mortgage to buy another instrument. Can be sassy at times, for example filters leading to outlet pump tend to clog after overuse without emptying waste vesicle. Don't forget to clear all lines with DI water upon termination of day or machine will be clogged with salt build up. 100000/10 stars, loyal scientist forever."

"This touchscreen version took a little getting used to after years of the previous ELX405. The instruments work well and don't require much maintenance, if at all."
Additionally, two integrated flash drives enable file storage, transfer, and operation. Instructional videos provide clear direction on instrument setup and basic use, and a context-sensitive help system, complete with recommendations, diagrams, and images is available. The 405 Touch maintains the same features as BioTek's ELx405 washers, including 96- and 384-well compatibility, dual-action manifold, Ultrasonic Advantage and vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation for bead-based assays.
All models include automated internal buffer switching, quick release manifolds and optimized cell washing with gentle, low-flow rates ideal for loosely adherent cell monolayers. The 405 Touch is powered by liquid handling control software, and can be coupled with BioTek's BioStack microplate stacker for unattended batch processing.
