AquaMax® Microplate Washers are configurable with user interchangeable heads for both 96- and 384-well microplate washing applications, including plate or cell washing.
When the AquaMax Microplate Washer is used for biochemical assays such as ELISA, the system is configured with the 96 or 384 plate wash heads to vigorously remove unbound material and reagents in microplate wells. By thoroughly washing plates, researchers can achieve lower background in their assays.
For cell-based assays, the AquaMax Washer can be configured with the 96- and 384-well cell wash heads. Cell wash heads have angled dispensing pins to allow extremely gentle washing of weakly adherent cell types, maintaining cell integrity while ensuring thorough washing.
Wash heads can be changed in 30 seconds with no tools using the innovative head latch mechanism. No recalibration is necessary and all heads are recognized by the AquaMax Washer base. By changing heads, users can effectively have 4 plate washers in the space of 1.

Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives. Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.A Better Model for Parkinson's Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.Faster Drug Discovery? Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.Microalgae Make a Splash in the UK Cosmeceutical Market Scottish innovators have discovered an anti-viral and anti-inflammatory carbohydrate in microscopic algae (microalgae) which has huge potential to change the cosmetics market. Mechanism of Tumor Suppressing Gene Uncovered The most commonly mutated gene in cancer,p53, works to prevent tumor formation by keeping mobile elements in check that otherwise lead to genomic instability, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found.
