IW-8, Intelispeed washer


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.
