ELx405 Select Deep Well Microplate Washer

"We use this for aspirating supernatants from pelleted cells and we need the remaining volumes to be precise. Works very well for that; vacuum is pretty consistent across tubes, pellets do not get disrupted and the positioning is highly accurate. We have the valve and ultrasonic upgrades for the sake of maintenance: we have one of the four valves dedicated to water and rinse the tips of any salts or cells if there will be any significant delay between processing plates to prevent clogging. The ultrasonic cleaning cycle is very good at clearing clogs when they do form. After a year of heavy use I've yet to use the rapier to clean the manifold. We use the instrument manually (interface is fine), on a computer via LHC2 software (interface is better) and automatically in a Vworks-integrated system. Note that if you're planning to automate, BioTek will not provide serial strings; you must use their LHC2 software. Have had minor problems with valves and fluid sensors but have not needed servi"

ELx405 Select Deep Well 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."

ELx405 Select Deep Well Microplate Washer

"This plate washer is really suitable for cell washing. Also, the liquid is dispensed at a low speed and so can be used for cells which detach easily. Therefore, I would recommend this instrument."

"We use this plate washer to aspirate & dispense liquids into plates with primary cells, and the gentle speed option on this model prevents cells from dispersing from the plate's surface."

"It works fine, but it wastes a lot of volume (water) for priming/rinsing steps and produces too much waste. When it clogs there are lots of channels to 'unclog'."

  • Washes microplates <50 mm in height
  • Accommodates 96- and 384-well formats
  • Automation of dispense and aspiration steps of conventional ELISA workflows
  • Optional cell washing with gentle, low-flow rates and 20° angled dispense tubes
  • Patented Dual-Action™ manifold for independent control of the aspirate and dispense manifolds for precise overfill washing and overflow protection
  • Internal positive displacement pump eliminates the use of troublesome pressure delivery systems and allows the use of any size dispense reservoir
  • Optional external valve module connects four reagent bottles with automatic switching between reagents
  • Built-in priming trough allows automatic manifold priming and rinsing during both operation and maintenance modes and eliminates the need for blank plates when used in automated robotic systems
  • Optional Ultrasonic Advantage™ – built in ultrasonic cleaner formanifold self-maintenance
  • Built-in fluid flow, fluid detection, and vacuum sensing provide complete protection for unattended operation
  • Biomagnetic separation ready with ANSI/SBS standard height microplates
  • BioStack compatible for unattended processing of up to 50 ANSI/SBS standard height microplates
