BioTek Instruments has added further capabilities to its 405 TS microplate washer, designed to improve laboratory workflows, simplify the user experience, and provide more time-saving convenience and value for applications such as cell-based assays, ELISAs, bead washing and more.
Updated software allows the user to define a specific volume to remain in the wells after aspiration and a fully adjustable regulator enables fine-tuning of the vacuum pressure, protecting fragile cell layers and spheroids from disruption. Once created via the user-friendly touch-screen interface, protocols may be password-protected to prevent unauthorised or accidental changes, and quickly recalled for use. When integrated with BioTek’s BioStack Microplate Stacker, the washer displays the plate number in process and the remaining overall processing time for all plates in the stack.
The updates add to existing 405 TS features that are designed to enable laboratories to operate more efficiently, including Verify technology to identify manifold tube blockages and report suspected clogs and Ultrasonic Advantage for thorough, automated and hands-free manifold cleaning.
