The 405 TS Microplate Washer is the gold standard in microplate washing. It features the patented Verify™ technology, which runs an automated QC check for manifold tube blockage, and visually reports any failed wells. The patented Ultrasonic Advantage™ can then be used to automatically and thoroughly clean the aspirate and dispense manifold. The 405 TS is the first self-checking, self-maintaining microplate washer available!
Cell-based assays and microsphere-based assays are easily run with the 405 TS’s unique set of available features and modules for gentle washing vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation.

The 405 TS has extensive onboard software, accessed through the convenient touchscreen interface. Program all aspects of the system’s wash and maintenance parameters, quickly and easily and store them onboard for routine use.
LHC Software allows computer-based programming of multi-step processes and it is used for integrating BioTek’s multi-mode washer dispensers, washers and dispensers into robotic systems. You can operate the system under computer control via LHC, or create protocols in LHC and download to the instrument for recall and execution.
LHC Secure software
LHC Secure software offers features to facilitate compliance to FDA directive 21 CFR Part 11
with computer control of BioTek’s Multi-Mode Washer Dispensers, Washers and Dispensers.
LHC SiLA software driver enables BioTek washer and dispenser integration into SiLA compliant automated systems. Includes LHC software for computer control and third party integration of BioTek’s Multi-Mode Washer Dispensers, Washers and Dispensers.
Patented Verify™ clog detection technology and Ultrasonic Advantage™
Verify™ technology, which runs an automated QC check for manifold tube blockage, and visually reports any failed wells. The patented Ultrasonic Advantage™ can then be used to automatically and thoroughly clean the aspirate and dispense manifolds.
High resolution, advanced touch screen User Interface
405 TS features high resolution touch screen user interface for intuitive and flexible programming of 96- and 384-well microplate wash protocols. The extensive onboard software seamlessly guides users through protocol development, instrument maintenance and operation.
