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.
