C.WASH™

Non-contact plate washer and liquid dispenser.

Streamlined Workflows With a Faster Processing Time

C.WASH™ is our innovative plate washer designed for automated, rapid and highly reproducible washing of the entire 96-, 384-, and 1536-well plates.​

The perfect solution for cell-based assays and bead-based nucleic acid purification.

The C.WASH uses centrifugal forces to remove liquids from well plates without needles or pipette tips. Because of these unique properties, C.WASH is the perfect solution for cell-based assays and bead-based nucleic acid purification.

How it works

Fast and Automated Liquid Removal from Entire 96-, 384- and 1536-Well Plates in Seconds.

Features designed to improve efficiency and speed up your workflow.

Non-Contact Washing
Avoid carryover and cross-contamination thanks to non-contact dispensing and liquid removal​.
Supports Multiple plate sizes
Versatile instrument capable of gently removing liquid from any SBS format, 96- 384- 1536-well plates.
Low Residual Volume
Unmatched washing efficiency with residual volumes <0.1µl, reduces the number of washing cycles required.
Fast and Automated
Avoid carryover and cross-contamination thanks to non-contact dispensing and liquid removal​.
DNA Purification

Fully automated and stand alone operation, 1 wash cycle in 96- or 384-well plate <1 min.

Cell-based assays

C.WASH automates all the washing and dispensing steps in a typical screening workflow, making it an essential device for drug discovery or gene editing in HTS environments.

Immunoassays

ELISAs are very sensitive immunoassays, therefore cross contamination and/or pipetting inaccuracies may result in high coefficient of variation (CV). The accurate non-contact dispensing limits both cross-contamination and therefore reduce CV. Moreover, the lower residual volume after washing enables a better washing efficiency and reduces the number of washes.

DNA purification

Using beads to clean up DNA has become the gold standard for NGS library preparation. Although it is a quick and easy method, the reduced cost for high throughput sequencing and the popularity of single cell sequencing have considerably increased the sample to be processed. The C.WASH can automate this workflow in both 96 and 384 microplates, thank to our compatible Magnetic plate carriers.

Highly Reproducible Washing Efficiency

Featuring a residual volume of <0.1 uL/well, C.WASH dramatically reduces the number of wash cycles required and results in faster, more reproducible assays.
