Abstract

 

Efficiency and productivity are increased with BioTek Instruments’ new EL406™ Microplate Washer Dispenser. This automation friendly, multi-functional instrument uniquely combines the industry standard ELx405™ Select CW Washer with a peristaltic reagent pumping system and two highly accurate syringe drive dispensers. The wash module uses BioTek Instruments’ patented Dual-Action™ manifold design for a variety of microplate formats along with optimized flow rates for cell-based applications. The peristaltic pump utilizes a unique design to provide accurate and precise volumes ranging from 1 μL to 10 mL. Three different autoclavable cassettes (1 μL, 5 μL, and 10μL) are each designed to deliver full incremental volumes for better performance. With two optional syringe pump dispensers, a total of three reagents can be dispensed without operator intervention. All functions are controlled by Microsoft® Windows® compatible software. Here we will demonstrate utility of this new design as applied to tissue culture cell experiments.
