Fast, Modular Microplate Washer To Meet Your Assay Needs

Efficient cell washing with minimal cell loss and optimal assay performance 
The AquaMax® Microplate Washer is a fully self-contained system, configurable for both 96- and 384-well microplates. Use preconfigured wash, soak, and aspiration protocols or create your own multi-step protocol using the simple touchscreen interface. For biochemical assays, the washer removes unbound material and unreacted reagents. For cell-based assays, the washer has the option for 96- or 384-well cell wash heads with angled pins to allow extremely gentle washing of weakly adherent cell types. 
Trouble-free operation 
Comprehensive cleaning protocols can be activated at the touch of a button for trouble-free operation. A standby feature keeps the washer primed and probe tips submersed in buffer for instant startup. 
Precise dispense and aspiration control allow processing without cell disruption. Fast sequential, continuous, and bottom washing options reduce wash times to a minimum. 
By using automatically-detected, interchangeable 96 and 384 wash heads, the AquaMax washer configures easily to meet current and future, higher-density microplate application requirements. 
The washer is easy to integrate with the latest automation tools. It is compatible with the Molecular Devices StakMax® Microplate Stacker and many robotic plate handlers. 
Other features and benefits include: 
• Install easily 
• Eliminate plate indexing 
• Run multiple wash protocols"
