Great time saver and valuable product.
Application Area: We use this for our IgM ELISA test with 96-well plates.
"We use these plate washers for multiple viral ELISA tests in our bio-level 3, virology diagnostic laboratory. The plate washer gives us reproducible results. We have 3 models in constant use throughout the week, though, none of ours have the automatic plate washer feature, which is a feature I wish we had. They save us time by not having to do manual plate washing. They are a valuable asset for our lab and I highly recommend this product!"

"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."
The 405 LS is available in a range of configurations for different microplate formats and wash requirements. The 405 HT LS is designed specifically to rapidly wash 384-well microplates and includes BioTek's patented Dual-Action™ 192-tube manifold to ensure optimal performance. A proprietary tube-in-tube aspiration manifold design also provides complete 384-well evacuation even with buffers not containing surfactant. The 405 Select LS offers the patented Dual-Action™ manifold in a 96-tube format, providing independent control of both dispense and aspirate manifolds for precise overfill washing and overflow protection. This unique design washes both 96- and 384-well plates without the need for any hardware changes. With its angled dispense tubes, full control of dispense and aspiration rates and unique X, Y, Z positioning, the 405 Select LS is ideal for the most demanding wash requirements including loosely-adherent cell lines. For those applications that use only 96-well microplates, the standard 405 LS is an ideal choice with unique features to lower background absorbance values and increase the signal-to-noise ratio of typical ELISA assays.
