Reduce Assay Failure with BioTek’s NEW ELx405™ Microplate Washer

January 3, 2005

Scientists are routinely confronted with assay failure due to poor instrument performance. The most common problem leading to ELISA assay failure is clogging in the washer manifold due to protein or salt crystal build-up. Facilitate washer maintenance – a time consuming and labor intensive process – with Bio-Tek’s patent pending Ultrasonic Advantage™.

Ultrasonic technologies benefit many industries with its unmatched cleaning power. Now this technology is available in the industry-leading ELx405 microplate washer, the only complete self-maintaining microplate washer on the market. The new ELx405 incorporates a built-in ultrasonic cleaner to aid in routine washer maintenance.

With unique features such as its patented Dual-Action™ manifold for precise overfill washing and overflow protection, sensitive cell washing capabilities for loosely adherent cell layers and now Ultrasonic Advantage™ for guaranteed assay integrity, the ELx405 meets the most demanding wash requirements. See how ultrasonic technology can improve assay performance. Visit Bio-Tek at booth #732 at Lab Automation 2005, January 31 – February 2, in San Jose, CA.
