BioTek's 405 Touch Redefines Microplate Washing

publication date: Mar 13, 2012
author/source: Shaw & Todd Advertising and Marketing Communications
Biotek 405 Touch Microplate WasherFor almost 30 years, BioTek set the standard in microplate washing, and we continue to advance this important technique with the new 405TM Touch Microplate Washer. A high-resolution, LED backlit touch screen interface provides intuitive and flexible protocol creation and implementation and instrument maintenance, and supports all gloved environments. Additionally, two integrated flash drives enable convenient file storage, transfer and operation. Instructional videos provide clear direction on instrument setup and basic use, and the context-sensitive help system, complete with recommendations, diagrams and images is available at the touch of a finger.

The 405 Touch maintains the same features as BioTek's industry-leading ELx405TM washers, including 96- and 384-well compatibility, Dual-ActionTM manifold, patent-pending Ultrasonic AdvantageTM and vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation for bead-based assays. All models include automated internal buffer switching, quick release manifolds and optimized cell washing with gentle, low-flow rates ideal for loosely adherent cell monolayers. The 405 Touch is powered by Liquid Handling ControlTM (LHCTM) software, and can be coupled with BioTek's BioStackTM Microplate Stacker for unattended batch processing.

BioTek Instruments, Inc., headquartered in Winooski, VT, USA, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of microplate instrumentation and software. In 2011, BioTek received the North American New Product Innovation Award for Workflow Solutions in Life Sciences from Frost & Sullivan. BioTek instrumentation is used to aid in the advancement of life science research, facilitate the drug discovery process and to enable cost-effective quantification of disease relevant molecules in the clinic.
