The BioTek ELx 405U Select is from the industry leader in plate washing. This microplate washer is built to be easy to use and can be paired with a BioStak Robot handler for even better efficiency and time savings. The BioTek ELx 405 Select can dispense into both 384 well and 96-well plates, thanks to this plate washer’s dual action manifold that ensures independent filling and evacuation control. In addition, the ELx405 Select has built in overflow washing and overflow protection. The BioTek ELx405 has optimized cell washing for low flow dispense rates, for loosely adherent monolayers. Cleaning and caring for this plate washer is simple, thanks to the ultrasonic function to help keep tubes and manifolds clear of workflow derailing clogs.


The ELx405U Select and a paired BioStack Robot can be directly controlled from the easy to navigate key pad and screen. Alternately users can opt to use BioTek liquid handling control software and control your BioStack and ELx405 Select from a windows-based PC. This elisa plate washer can be used to automate the dispensing and aspiration steps of common ELISA assays. This plate washer has the option to connect an external valve module which allows for the connection of up to 4 reagents bottles with automatic switching. There is also built in priming that allows the ELx405U Select Microplate Washer to avoid having to use blank plates during the process and avoids wasting consumables.
