BioTek ELx405 Select Deep Well Washer

The ELx405 Select is the world’s first deep well microplate washer that aspirates and dispenses into 96- and 384-well plates. ANSI/SBS standard height microplates can also be washed, making the ELx405 Select a total solution for all your laboratory’s microplate washing workflows. The ELx405™ Select is automation compatible and its Dual-Action™ manifold is particularly useful in cell-based assays. Maintenance is easy with the available patented Ultrasonic Advantage™ that automated cleans manifold tubes to remove built-up salt and protein. The ELx405 Select is ideal for all standard and deep well microplate washing requirements.
