MatriCal introduces the ability to wash microplates of any density with the new and improved SQUIRT.
Spokane, WA - MatriCal Inc. has recently launched SQUIRT, a novel benchtop plate washer technology it licensed from Nuvogen Research. The patent pending SQUIRT utilizes a first-in-class slit manifold design that ensures gentle washing of cellular monolayer without cell removal associated with conventional probe based washers while outperforming the clog-prone nozzles of conventional plate washers. User intervention for fitting and re-alignment between microplate format changes is no longer necessary because SQUIRT accommodates all SBS formatted plates (96, 384, and 1536). Variable wash angle, dispense speed, and pressure settings allow for optimizing cell-based or ELISA assays, with wash times under 10 seconds in all formats!
