Crocodile is a compact ELISA workstation for the automation of 96 well microplate assays. It is a bench-top instrument that has been designed specifically with ease of use in mind. It is easy to operate, extremely reliable and only requires minimal routine maintenance. The miniWorkstation is a multi-purpose device, providing the same functionality as 5 individual instruments in a footprint similar to a standard stand-alone microplate reader:
- Reagent dispenser (4 onboard dispensers)
- Automated washer (8 channel washer/aspirator)
- Plate shaker (frequency: 5 - 20 Hz)
- Incubator (temperature: ambient - 55°C)
- OD reader (pre-installed filters: 405, 450, 492, 620 nm)
Under normal circumstances, running your ELISA assays required an hour and more of your attention, making it difficult to plan other important activities
while your assay was in process.
Crocodile provides the same functionality as five individual instruments in a footprint similar to a standard stand-alone-reader. The use of Crocodile
will reduce assay times by eliminating the need to move plates between dispenser, washer, incubator, shaker and reader. This allows you to perform
other important activities and be even more productive.
