The BioTek ELx405UCWVS is a microplate washer that is designed and manufactured by a leader in plate technology.  The ELX405UCWVS 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 also optimized for cell washing loosely adherent monolayers. The vacuum filtration on this plate washer leaves nothing behind and comes with sample/waste bottles.  The ELx405UCWVS washer plate works with standard microplates and is a great solution for labs looking for solid bottom microplate washing.

The BioTek ELx405UCWVS 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 panel.
