Easy-to-Use Strip Washers
MUNICH, Germany, March 30, 2010 — Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.’s Wellwash and Wellwash Versa strip washers feature a large, easy-to-use, icon-based graphical user interface, available in eight languages, as well as a context-sensitive help feature.
Protocols can be developed quickly with minimal training. Nonpressurized wash bottles enable operators to use their own containers, eliminating leakage concerns associated with pressurized bottles, such as damage to liquid-sensitive internal components. The sweep mode ensures low residual volumes, improving enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results.
The entry-level Wellwash is compatible with 96-well plates, making it suitable for routine clinical use. Wellwash Versa performs efficient washing of cells and 384-well plates. Its double-strip wash heads increase throughput, and the linear shaking mechanism maximizes washing efficiency.
Both incorporate an automatic prime and rinse feature to prevent clogging of liquid channels. The aerosol cover prevents aerosols of infectious diseases from spreading.
A USB port facilitates transfer plate washing protocols between a PC and a washer, or from one washer to another, using a USB flash memory stick.
