The BioTek ELx405UVS microplate washer is designed and manufactured by a leader in plate technology.  The ELX405UVS from Bio-Tek is built to wash 96 and 384 well plates, with a dual action manifold with 96 dispensing and aspirating tubes, and comes with automatic 4 buffer switching and ultra-sonic cleaning. This microplate washer is ideally suited for DNA sequencing labs looking for high efficiency. The vacuum filtration on this plate washer leaves nothing behind and comes with sample/waste bottles.  The ELx405UVS washer plate works with standard microplates and is a great solution for labs looking for solid bottom microplate washing.


The BioTek ELx405UVS incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning function and operates by rapidly creating and collapsing minute vacuum bubbles, creating an agitation that scrubs the inside and outside of the washer eliminating even heavy protein and salt build up. It’s recommended by BioTek that you prime, clean, sonication and then re-prime with rinse cycle each time so the ELx405 is ready to go for the next wash. This microplate washer is compatible with the BioStack BioRobot making this a great addition to any high-throughput (HTS) laboratories.  This reliable plate washer from BioTek has a built-in over-flow sensor for precision filling of microplates. In addition, the BioTek ELx405 comes equipped with prime, sonicate tubes and cleaning protocols built right into the control pane.
