“With the Blue® Washer we see much lower %CV and have on average higher number of cells remaining in the wells after the wash steps, which is improving our results. Also, the Blue® Washer is much faster at doing the media replacements than doing it on our robotic platform (about ten times faster with 1,536 well plates)."

“ Blue® Washer improved the z' of an assay for which I used to do the media change manually by "dump and tap" from around 0.6 to 0.8."

“Before we tried the Blue® Washer, we had 4 cellular screens in 384w plates for which we could not achieve the reproducibility and z' metrics required to put those screens into HTS and we were ready to give up on those screens.  When we tried the Blue® Washer, our quality metrics were immediately met and we have been running those screens ever since.”

“My conclusion is that the Blue® Washer is the best plate washer we have ever tested.”

“ The statistics of data sets generated with the Blue® Washer are vastly improved vs our conventional methods.  Because there is so much less background noise in the data I can set the hit calling threshold much lower - I miss fewer potential hits and I generate fewer false positives, making our downstream discovery efforts much more productive."

“The time the Blue® Washer saved us in fixation protocols and the increased reproducibility of cell numbers between wells after washing allowed us to use poorly adherent cells that we had given up on using.”
