The Tecan HydroFlex Microplate Washer is a truly flexible and upgradeable platform for automated microplate strip washing, magnetic bead washing and vacuum filtration in 96-well plate formats. It is an ideal solution for a wide range of cell-, bead- and ELISA-based applications, reflecting over 30 years of Tecan expertise in advanced liquid handling.

Every HydroFlex washer comes with microplate shaking and automated buffer switching included, ready for ELISA washing and gentle washing of cells. In addition, optional user-interchangeable plate carriers are available for easy switching between washing and filtration applications. For magnetic bead washing, the HydroFlex uses a patented carrier design with two neodymium magnets per well, ensuring efficient bead settling.
