ELx405 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."

"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."

ELx405 Microplate Washer

"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'."

ELx405 Microplate Washer

"Useful for cell based assays"

Description

 

The ELx405 Series Automated Microplate Washers have become the market leaders for applications ranging from basic ELISAs to complex cell-based assays. 

BioTek’s expertise in microplate washing is evident now in two new additions to the product family, the ELx405 HT and the ELx405 Select CW. 

The ELx405 HT provides a solution for the critical speed requirements of 384-well plate washing in the High Throughput Screening environment without sacrificing performance or ease of use. 

Most models of the ELx405 now incorporate the patent pending Ultrasonic Advantage™, a built-in ultrasonic cleaner to aid in routine washer maintenance and reduce assay failure.

The ELx405 Select CW is specially designed to accommodate all wash requirements, including non- or loosely adherent cell-based assays.  All of the ELx405 models include versatile but user-friendly onboard software for defining wash programs as well as optimizing the plate position during dispense and aspiration. 

An ActiveX programming package is available for easy integration into automated systems.

Now available with vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation modules.
