"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. "

405™ Touch Microplate Washer

"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."

405™ Touch Microplate Washer

"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."
