Microplate Washer & Aspirator

3D-IW8, Inteliwasher

1

Description

Inteliwasher 3D-IW8 series microplate washer is designed for washing various types of standard 96-well microtitre plates, microstrips as well as microarrays on FastFRAME (rectangular well shape). It is suitable for washing wells with different bottom shapes: flat, U-shape and V-shape. 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). Dispense system of liquid dosage for each channel separately.

The unit provides:

  • Washing mode
  • Rinsing mode
  • Mixing mode
  • Single point, two point, circular (circle or rectangular path) 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)
  • Round-bottom plate and strip washing mode
  • Possibility of user-defined programs with adjustable parameters

The unit has 50 programs divided into 5 following aspiration categories (see figure leftward):

  • Type 1 (1.0–1.9) IPF96 U/V is intended for roundand V-shape immunoplates, 1 point aspiration.
  • Type 2 (2.0–2.9) IPF96 FLAT-2 is intendedfor flat-bottom shape immunoplates, 2 point aspiration.
  • Type 3 (3.0–3.9) IPF96 FLAT-C is intended for rectangular shape immunoplates, full-circle aspiration direction.
  • Type 4 (4.0–4.9) FastFRAME-2 is intendedfor multi-slide plate* with rectangular wells.
  • Type 5 (5.0–5.9) FastFRAME-C is intendedfor multi-slide* plate with rectangular wells.

* – The FastFRAME (Schleicher&Shuel) multi-slide plate or analog plate of another manufacturer, that is compatible with standard 25 x 76 mm (1 x 3 inch) glass slides.

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.

FTA-1, Aspirator with trap flask

5

Description

Aspirator with trap flask FTA-1 is designed for aspiration/removal of alcohol/buffer remaining quantities from microtest tube walls during  DNA/RNA purification and other macromolecule reprecipitation techniques.

The device can be used also for routine operations of cells washing from culture medium and resuspension in buffer. Aspirator operation principle is based on creating negative pressure in trapping flask using built-in microcompressor. The collecting tip is connected with polyethylene tube to the trapping flask. Liquid is removed from the microtest tube when the collecting tip touches the solution surface. A tube holder-organizer is conveniently located at FTA-1 right hand side; it accommodates two tubes (e.g. for hydrochloric acid solution and distillate) necessary for collecting tip washing and storing, so that a tip can be re-used.

A suction microbiological filter eliminates risk of contamination from the trap flask with bacteria, viruses and infected particles. The suction microbiological filter is hydrophobic: with efficiency up to 99.9% it holds particles bigger than 0.027 micron, which are smaller then agents of Hepatitis A, B and C.
