Modular microplate washers

Wednesday, 07 November, 2007 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Ltd



The AquaMax 2000 and AquaMax 4000 series of microplate washers feature a modular design that allows users to configure the system for their current microplate format and applications, whilst at the same time providing an affordable upgrade path when assay requirements change.

The systems' 96- and 384-well wash heads are interchangeable to extend the capabilities of the system on a single instrument platform. The interchangeable heads install in seconds, without the need for tools, calibration or alignment.

The AquaMax system washes the wells of microplate-based biological assays, an integral component of life science research. Primary applications for this instrument include ELISA, immunoassays and cytotoxicity assays, and many cell-based assays used in high-throughput screening.

The system washes all wells in 96- and 384-well microplates simultaneously, resulting in fast microplate processing compared to conventional washers that sequentially fill and aspirate wells by strip or quadrant methods. Intuitive, touch-screen programming gives a high degree of control over microplate processing parameters resulting in fast and efficient plate washing. Because of the system's efficient washing capability, background interference is minimised and assay sensitivity is maximised.

A comprehensive cleaning routine prevents and eliminates clogged dispense head and probes. The reverse-flush feature cleans the instrument head, not just the probes. In addition, the air purge feature dries the head and the probes to eliminate mould formation.

AquaMax is completely self-contained and does not require external pumps or computers.
