Designed to increase throughput and decrease the cost per assay, the 384-well plate can do the job of four 96-well plates, and with Skatron's new EMBLA 384 Plate Washer, all 384 wells can be washed in a flash.

Skatron's new EMBLA 384 is designed for the high throughput screening arena and specifically for integration with laboratory automation systems. At the heart of the EMBLA 384 are two separate heads equipped with 192 probes each (arranged in an 8 x 24 grid); one head for aspirating and one for dispensing. The EMBLA rapidly transfers the plate between heads during washing and is capable of dispensing 10µl to 100µl in a 384-well plate with a coefficient of variation of 2 percent at 90µl. Two separate inlets allow for the use of two different liquids, such as two separate wash buffers, a wash solution and a dispense solution, or a wash solution and...
