The BioTek EL406 washer dispenser is a compact instrument offering fast, full plate washing along with three reagent dispensers. The EL406 capabilities include washing and dispensing for standard assays, plus biomagnetic separation and vacuum filtration protocols. The Dual-Action manifold optimizes washing for loosely adherent cell monolayers. The patented Ultrasonic Advantage prevents blockages in the manifold tubes before washing, to reduce assay failure. This modular plate washer dispenser offers flexibility with both syringe pump and peristaltic pump dispensers, along with plate washing, on a single platform.

  • Fast, full microplate washing, optimized for loosely adherent cell monolayers
  • Up to three reagent dispensers with choice of either peristaltic pump or syringe drive technologies for different assay requirements 96-, 384- and 1536-well microplates
  • Automates long and tedious assay liquid-handling processes
  • Smaller benchtop or robotic system footprint compared to separate washer and three dispensers
  • BioStack compatible for automated processing of up to 50 standard height microplates
  • Full control with powerful Liquid Handling Control PC Software
  • Optimized washing for loosely adherent cell layers
  • Built-in, patent-pending Ultrasonic Advantage for unattended wash manifold maintenance
  • Optional buffer switching of up to four buffers for complex wash routines
