"We have Biotek and Zoom washers working side-by-side in our lab. Biotek washers are definitely nicer to work with. The Zoom washers tend to require more maintenance, and more calibration from time to time. Precision-wise, we don't use Zoom washers for adherent cell wash because the wash was not the same for all wells in a 384 well plate. However, the Zoom washer is great for back up and regular ELISA protocols. Definitely worth the money."
The Zoom Microplate Washer is a versatile and easy-to-use microplate washer for 96- and 384-well plates. Flexible user-defined settings make the Zoom Washer adaptable to all your microplate washing needs. The selectable dispense flow rate, aspirate time and aspirate tips positioning make the Zoom Washer a perfect tool for a variety of applications ranging from vigorous ELISA washing to gentle cell washing.
The self-emptying wash liquid evacuation system discards used wash fluids in unattended mode. It supports a constant aspirate flow rate during the wash cycle. The flow rate can be set as high as 120 l/min or can be significantly reduced to facilitate gentle cell washing. The discarded wash fluid is captured by a self-emptying waste trap. The trap is capable of automatically introducing the decontamination reagent. The decontaminated waste is continuously drained during washer operation.
When equipped with an optional Dispense Module, the Zoom becomes more than a washer but a modular liquid handling workstation for 96- and 384-well plate processing.
The optional Dispense Module allows for an immediate reagent addition after or between wash cycles. Flexible programming options enable the user to choose between wash, wash-dispense or just dispense protocols. Shake and soak time options further extend the capabilities of the Zoom Washer.
