The Bio-Rad 1575 Immunowash microplate washer is an ideal washer for cleaning microplates, ensuring precise and reproducible assays. This washer comes with preprogrammed wash sequences and allows the user to save wash routines with chosen parameters. Up to 110 protocols, each with washing/aspiration/dispensing/agitation procedures and multiple cycles can be saved. This ensures precise and optimal washing, needed for reproducible assays. Horizontal and vertical needle positions can be accurately programmed for bottom washing, crosswise aspiration, and overflow washing. Crosswise aspiration helps to lower residual volume and overflow washing eliminates the need for repetitive aspiration and dispensing steps. Controllable dispensing rate ensures enhanced volume accuracy and adjustable plate shaking reduces bubbles and liquid adherence.
The 1575 Immunowash washer can be used to wash 96-well microplates with flat-, U-, or V-bottom wells and strips. The washer is easy to clean with a removable and autoclavable plate carrier. Aerosol protection cover and predefined disinfection protocol protect against contamination. Integrated vacuum and dispensing pumps ensure quiet operation and reduced maintenance costs. Easy to install 8- and 12-way manifolds provide flexibility to the washing procedure. The user interface is multilingual – English, French, Russian. The 1575 washer also has FDA registration as a medical device for use in clinical chemistry applications.
