The MultiWash III Washer can be used to perform a wide range of assays including enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), enzyme immuno assay(EIA), fluorescent immuno assay(FIA), luminescent immuno assay(LIA), cytotoxicity assays, and agglutination tests in flat, round, or V-bottom microplates. It is configurable with user interchangeable wash manifolds to suit a variety of washing applications.
The system is completely self-contained with no external pumps, and can be assembled and fully operational in just minutes. Once operational, the MultiWash III Washer can perform a 300 µL three-cycle wash on a 96-well plate in less than two minutes. For greater assay flexibility, users can wash any number of rows or columns, including washing the whole plate. All programming is done on the front display panel. No external computer is necessary for programming or operation.
The unique coaxial manifold design combines the dispense and aspiration channels in one probe. This allows the user to wash with greater speed than typical designs that have separated aspiration and dispense channels. The modular manifold design also allows the user to wash in either column or row format depending on the manifold installed.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.Honey’s Potential to Save Lives The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years. 3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University. Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines. Light Signals from Living Cells Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.Cellular 'Relief Valve' A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
