Multifunctional 384- and 96-well power washer

TECAN’s new multifunctional power washer, the PW 384, simultaneously washes all the wells of a 384-well plate in "overflow" mode quicker than ever before. This unique, ultra-fast wash speed is ideal for life science laboratories performing either cell-based or ELISA applications in high throughput screening and secondary screening.
The PW 384’s innovative design means you can switch easily between 384- and 96-well plates, just by changing the wash head. There are adjustable dispensing speeds and vacuum levels, so you can choose the gentle dispensing speed for cell-based assays to minimise dislodging cells, or the fast overflow setting for more robust ELISA assays.
An optional liquid level control system lets you know when wash and rinse bottles are empty and prevents waste overflow. Fully automatic preventative maintenance procedures make sure that this fast and flexible washer runs smoothly and reliably.
The PW 384 can function as a stand-alone instrument and is easily integrated into robotic assay systems such as Workstations and TRAC via an OLE-interface.
