Intelispeed Washer IW-8 is designed for washing of standard flat-bottom 96 well plates and microstrips. The unit is fully programmable ensuring multi-step solution ripening, aspiration (aspiration, combination of aspiration/liquid dispensing and soaking, as well as soaking cycle during a particular period of time).
The unit has 100 user-defined programs. Standard version is supplied with 8-channel washing head for dispensing/aspiration, 3 bottles for washing and rinsing solutions, a waste bottle and bottle with filter. Optional 4-channel washing solution weight logger, 4 CHW Logger is available.
The unit is designed for washing standard 96-well plates during analyses.
The unit provides:
- Washing mode
- Rinsing mode
- Mixing mode
- Double aspiration
- Possibility of additional solution mixing during time gap between two work cycles
- Possibility to use microtest plates by different manufacturers, ensured by automated plate set up (adjusting to different depths of plate wells)
- Plate and strip washing mode
- User-defined programs with adjustable parameters
- Saving work programs
The unit is designed for use in closed laboratory rooms at temperatures from +10°С to +35°С and relative humidity up to 80% at +25°С decreasing linearly to 50% relative humidity at 35°C.
4-channel washing solution weight logger, 4 CHW Logger provides automatic control of rinsing solution and waste volumes. The washer shows remaining volume for each bottle as percentage and gives a warning message in case of low solution volume or full waste bottle when 4 CHW Logger is connected.
