HydroSpeed Microplate Washer Options
- Selection of wash heads for optimized results.
- Magnetic bead washing in 96- and 384-well plate formats.
- Vacuum filtration in 96- and 384-well filter plates.
The HydroSpeed is Tecan’s advanced microplate washer, designed to provide optimized washing of cells, beads and ELISAs in both 96- and 384-well formats. It offers full control over critical wash parameters to help maximize efficiency.
Extra gentle cell washing with tuneable wash power
Loosely adherent cell lines, such as P815 and HEK 293, are commonly used for a wide range of research applications, but are challenging to wash for typical plate washers.
Discover the difference with Tecan’s HydroSpeed expert cell washer:
Reliable operation through active prevention of needle clogging
Automated ELISA processing using a microplate washer is now a routine task for many laboratories, yet crystallization of wash buffer within the aspiration/dispense needles remains a common problem. The HydroSpeed’s innovative Anti-Clogging function actively prevents needle clogging by automatically rinsing and soaking the wash head when the washer is idle for a user-defined period.
Highlights of Anti-Clogging function include:
Patent pending design using dual magnets per well:
Efficient bead settling and high bead recovery rates
Multiplexed assays using magnetic beads are becoming increasingly popular for a variety of applications, but achieving good wash results without loosing beads remains a challenge. The HydroSpeed washer protects magnetic beads by settling them away from the needles during aspiration, achieving low residual volumes while maintaining high bead recovery rates.
Ease of Use:
Integrated monitoring of liquid level in waste bottle
Patent-pending auto-adjust function for easy teaching of new plates
