BioTek Launches Next Generation Microplate Washer Platform

BioTek's new ELx50TM Microplate Strip Washer platform brings flexibility to a new level by providing a compact 3-in-1 solution for automating complex washing steps in many 96-well based assays including standard ELISA, biomagnetic bead separation and polystyrene vacuum filtration including the popular Luminex xMap® MultiPlex Assay technology. Other popular applications include vacuum filter-to-waste for PCR cleanup, washing in cell-based assays, and washing protein arrays spotted in microplate wells.

This newest version of the popular ELx50 Automated Microplate Washer provides a modular 3-in-1 platform, bridging the gap between manual washing and higher throughput automated systems. The ELx50 uses a unique microprocessor controlled syringe fluid system for precise control over multiple flow rates. Each unit features integrated dispense and aspirate pumps. High-strength biomagnetic separation offers superior micrometer and nanometer bead retention in flat-bottom, round-bottom and half area microplates. Vacuum filtration is fully adjustable to accommodate a wide range of polystyrene beads washing with filter-bottom plates including filter-to-waste processing when used with various filter pore sizes and sample viscosities.

"This latest innovation is a result of BioTek's 25 years of advanced microplate washing expertise and continues our long history of innovation here at BioTek," remarks Jason Greene, Product Marketing Manger at BioTek.

BioTek Instruments, Inc., headquartered in Winooski, VT, USA, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of microplate instrumentation and software. 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.
