The HydroSpeed is Tecan’s advanced microplate washer, designed to provide optimized washing of cells, beads and ELISAs in both 96- and 384-well formats. It offers full control over critical wash parameters to help maximize efficiency.

Based on more than 30 years of experience in automated liquid handling, Tecan understands that advanced plate washing applications require precise control of dispensing and aspiration settings to avoid loss of material and poor reproducibility.

With full on-board operation via the easy-to-use touchscreen interface, the HydroSpeed really does offer you power and control for all your cell, bead and ELISA washing applications.
