  • HydroFlex™ plate washing for cell assays For gentle cell washing, the HydroFlex offers individual control of critical wash parameters such as speed settings for aspiration and dispense, as well as wash head positioning, allowing fine tuning of the wash protocol to the specific cell-type used. Furthermore a very gentle drop-wise dispense mode combined with a move function optimizing the position of the wash head relative to the rising liquid level in the well, ensures good wash results with weakly adherent cell lines. • Excellent wash efficiency and minimum residual volume • Optimized wash results with adherent and weakly adherent cell lines The HydroFlex microplate washer is a truly flexible plate washer that provides excellent automated microplate strip washing and vacuum filtration performance for 96-well microplate formats. This modular and upgradeable plate washer is ideal for a wide range of cell-, enzyme- and DNA-based applications in academia, biotech, pharma and clinical diagnostics, reflecting over 30 years of Tecan expertise in advanced liquid handling. The multifunctional HydroFlex microplate washer offers far greater flexibility than a standard plate microplate washer, and features user-interchangeable plate carriers for easy switching between washing and filtration applications to allow: • ELISA washing for improved consistency and reliability • Gentle washing of cell-based assays with adherent or weakly adherent cells • Microplate array washing for protein and antibody arrays • Vacuum filtration to waste for PCR cleanup after DNA amplification, etc. • Magnetic bead washing using MBS carrier
