  • Application Area: Washing magnetic bead plates

  • ELx50 Microplate Strip Washer

"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."
