Tecan Columbus Pro

The microplates and ELISA washers in the Tecan HydroFlex and Columbus series are some of the most well-known and reliable in the strip washer market. They are also the result of Tecan’s more than 30 years of experience in the field of liquid handling.

HydroFlex and Columbus washers are the ideal automated solution for flexible applications for washing cells, beads and ELISA assays.

Wide range of applications

All microplate washers are available in different configurations, for example with 8 channel or 16 channel washing heads and 1, 2 or 4 channels for connecting washing solutions. The washers are able to gently wash ELISA assays, cells and beads.

Replaceable plate carriers are also available, which make it easy to switch between washing and filtration applications. For example, the HydroFlex washer uses a patented carrier design with 2 neodymium magnets per well for washing magnetic beads. This ensures that the beads are efficiently retained.
