Intelligent Software Developed for BioTek Microplate Washers and Dispensers

January 24, 2008

Liquid Handling Control™ (LHC™) Software is now available for use with BioTek’s liquid handlers including the market-leading ELx405™ Microplate Washer and the new MicroFlo™ Select Dispenser. Full PC control provided by LHC Software leads to increased convenience when programming important assay-specific protocol requirements in a familiar Microsoft Windows® environment. Intuitive StepWise™ protocol creation offers an unlimited number of methods to be programmed and run from a PC or directly from the instrument’s keypad, and parameters can be printed for GLP compliance. Additionally, automatic protocol validation protects against errors.

For peak performance, custom maintenance reminders can be programmed, and PC control of the ELx405’s Ultrasonic Advantage™ provides completely unattended washer manifold maintenance. Multiple instruments may be controlled in parallel with LHC Software, and LHC Software supports BioTek’s Bio-Stack™ Microplate Stacker integrations for high-throughput applications.
