"We had trouble at first setting up the machine to wash our Milliplex plates. We had to get special instructions from the tech support. Washing with this instrument gives us much more reliable results than using the filter plate/vacuum system. It works great for the small sample volumes we deal with in our lab."

"This plate washer has a small footprint while working efficiently. With proper care the heads never clog! Extra bottles can be ordered to make multiple uses of this machine easy and possible."

"A great little washer - easily programmable."
This breakthrough design allows for independent control of the dispensing and aspiration manifolds for overfill washing and overflow protection in both 96- and 384-well formats. The Dual-Action manifold provides incomparable wash performance with two sets of dispensing and aspiration tubes per well. This exclusive method of two-fold aspiration guarantees low residuals.
Available models with biomagnetic separation and vacuum filtration capabilities make the ELx50 an excellent choice for automating the wash steps of 96-well magnetic or polystyrene bead assays, such as those developed on the Luminex® xMAP® technology platform. With its unique aspiration carrier, the ELx50 FMW accommodates a range in filter pore sizes and fluid viscosities with selectable vacuum levels and aspiration times and for completely automated filter bottom plate washing.
Additionally, the washer’s modular platform allows for processing standard solid bottom plates used in a laboratory’s many traditional ELISAs and cell based assays.
