BioTek 405 TS Washer

The 405 TS Microplate Washer is the gold standard in microplate washing. It features the patented Verify™ technology, which runs an automated QC check for manifold tube blockage, and visually reports any failed wells. The patented Ultrasonic Advantage™ can then be used to automatically and thoroughly clean the aspirate and dispense manifold. The 405 TS is the first self-checking, self-maintaining microplate washer available! Cell-based assays and microsphere-based assays are easily run with the 405 TS’s unique set of available features and modules for gentle washing, vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation.
