Blue®Washer uses centrifugation to remove liquids from 96, 384 and 1536w plates, eliminating background and variability in assay data. Highly reproducible, low residual volumes < 0.3 µl/ well raise z' by 0.1-0.3 for typical cellular assays. Higher z' means more reliable compound profiles - fewer truly active compounds missed AND fewer false positives to re-screen.

Blue®Washer immediately improves screening economics without complex assay or automation changes, delivering unparalleled ROI and boosting drug discovery productivity.
Magnetic carrier for non-contact magnetic bead wash
Blue®Washer now with up to 3 dedicated dispensers: economical dispensing of precious reagents into batches of plates
- no interim flushing.
Centrifugation instead of aspiration
Centrifugal Blue®Washer: Meet the new standard
With a suite of magnetic carriers, Blue®Washer dramatically reduces run time and tip waste for magnetic bead assays.
Blue®Washer's magnetic carriers retain magnetic beads during centrifugal evacuation, eliminating costly and time consuming liquid removal by automated liquid handlers. Adding a Blue®Washer to your ALH more than triples ALH throughput while eliminating tip waste in separation and wash steps.

Magnetic bead assays
Since winning SLAS and MipTec new product awards in 2015, Blue®Washer has rapidly become the new standard for media change and cell wash in cellular screening. Most top 25 pharma companies now use Blue®Washers to obtain better assay data (z') to reduce false positive and false negative results and deliver more meaningful compound profiles to chemists.
