Are you looking for a microplate reader and washer? You’ve come to the right place. We carry microplate readers and microplate washers that are right for you. 
If you need a compact and economical microplate reader that works with your computer without a hitch, then the Chromate microplate reader is a good choice. 
Yet if you want some convenient artificial intelligence on your side, then take a look at the Accuris microplate reader instead. It has an intuitive screen and provides measurement data, interpretations, and calculated analyses on the screen after a reading. 
Of course if it’s a microplate washer you’re looking for, then the Stat Fax 2600 is superb. Other than the expected features for a microplate washer (and more), it’s also convenient to use and extra quiet! 
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve got a lot more to offer.

The Accuris SmartReader 96 MR9600 and MR9600-T are welcome additions to any lab that is routinely measuring concentration or absorbance in 96 well plates.  The 7 inch touchscreen, intuitive software and graphical interface make these instruments easy to use as a standalone reader (a seperate computer and additional software is not required).

The SmartReader 96 comes complete with 4 popular filters: 405, 450, 492, 630 nm and twenty six additional filters are available separately to cover a full range from 340 to 750 nm.  The integrated filter wheel allows up to 8 filters to be loaded at once, and filters can be selected during programming

Use the touchscreen, or connect a mouse for programming and operation.  The menu interface allows the user to choose the wavelength filter, set shaking parameters, enter details of the plate layout, and also choose the details for the reading protocol and data calculations.

Model MR9600-T offers precise temperature control for incubation of plates during processing.  Temperature can be maintained at 5°C above ambient to 50°C.
Up to two filters can be used for 2 measurements of the sample plate, for calculated comparisons.  Kinetic calculations can be performed by setting multiple readings.

The SmartReader 96 is a convenient stand-alone reader, all software and the programing system is incorporated into the electronics.  However, a convenient USB port on the side allows quick and easy saving of data files to a USB drive, and the universal .csv files can then be shared or transferred to a computer for storage or further processing.  A data port can be used for connecting a computer or basic printer.

The plate layout interface allows for quick and intuitive set up of a plate's well contents.  The display shows a graphical representation of the 96 well plate, and the user can label each well as required for: "known standard", "unknown sample",  "blank well", "QC control well", "negative control", "positive control", or "empty".  The interface allows highlighting and labeling multiple wells to save time.

CappWash plate washer is an ideal elisa plate washer for small scale work. Simple, compact and inexpensive. Fitting into even the tightest budget, Capp plate washer is a perfect alternative to dependence on department washers for washing micro plates and strips. Capp elisa plate washer works most effectively with a vacuum source.

Capp elisa plate washer requires no programming nor electrical wiring connections. It is made of a high-grade stainless steel and polypropylene, making it fully autoclavable and highly resistant to aggressive chemicals.

The unique Two-in-One Design of Capp elisa plate washer gives each tube 2 functions - delivery of the washing solution to the well and aspiration of the used solution back to the waste collection bottle. This is possible as each tube of Capp elisa plate washer consists of an inner tube that releases the distilled water washing solution into the wells for rinsing while the outer tube vacuums away the liquid upon completion of the washing procedure.

The washing process with Capp plate washer is as simple as it can be: Simply lower the tubes into the well then push the knob to fill and release the knob to empty. Now repeat for the desired amount of washings and move on to the next row.

Capp elisa plate washer is suitable for all well types. The plate washer can be set to the desired depth very easily by simply adjusting the two screws found on either side of the tubes

STAT FAX 2600 Microwell Plate Washer

The Stat Fax® 2600 is a microprocessor-controlled automatic microplate washer that accepts many types of standard microplates and micro strip trays. The instrument will accept microwells having flat-, round-, or V-bottom configurations. It automatically accommodates partially filled micro strip trays. Plates may be washed in the A to H direction (8 strips of 12 wells each) or in the 1 to 12 direction (12 strips of 8 wells each) depending upon the plate orientation in the carrier and the number of wash probes on the head. Instruments are available with user changeable wash heads. The 8-wash head is standard; 12-wash head is available as optional accessories.

The instrument is fully programmable to provide multistep combinations of dispense, aspirate, combined aspirate/dispense, and timed soak cycles. Each user-programmed test can have up to 20 steps, and the instrument is capable of storing approximately 50 separate tests in non-volatile memory. As a convenience feature, the instrument can be programmed to automatically perform a rinse operation at a particular time of day. The instrument may also be used in the direct mode whereby wash operations are selected via the built-in keypad. A feature allowing user-assigned well depth may also be used, if preferred to the automatic well sensing feature. For volumes larger than the capacity of the wells, or to reduce bubbles, a top-wash feature is included so the wash solution may be aspirated off the top as it is being dispensed.

In addition to the 8-probe combination dispense/aspirate wash head, each instrument is supplied with wash, rinse, and waste bottles utilizing integral electronic level sensors, and an aerosol shield. A stainless steel bottle rack is available as an optional accessory.

STAT FAX 4200 Microplate Reader

The Stat Fax 4200 Microplate Reader is a compact, microprocessor-controlled, multi-purpose
photometer system designed to read and calculate the results of assays, which are read in 96
well microtiter plates or strip trays. The microplate reader may be used for in-vitro diagnostics. It is a user-programmable open system with selectable plate formatting, alphanumeric test naming, automatic interpretation options, duplicate well options, curve plotting and editing, flags and error messages from which the user can create a menu of pre-programmed assays for instant recall. This instrument is intended to be used as a stand-alone instrument without a PC but it has a connection in the event a user wishes to download results.

Stat Fax 4200 reads monochromatically (optional) or bichromatically (optional) and has two

  • Four-filter model (405, 450, 492, and 630 nm)
  • Six-filter VIS model (405, 450, 492, 545, 600, and 630 nm)


Substitute filters in the range of 405 nm – 750 nm are available on special order

Stat Fax 4200 accepts all standard microplates. Trays containing microstrips may also be read
whether they are 12 wells in length, 8 wells or even partial strips.

The software allows the operator to create, edit and store assays. Standard
curves are also stored in this memory. Test protocols remain stored until either changed or
deleted by the user.

TheStat Fax 4200’s optical system provides an economical and low maintenance design which reads 8 wells simultaneously. A 96 well plate can be read and printed in the absorbance mode in approximately ten seconds. Light from a lamp installed in a sealed light-tight compartment is filtered using a rotating filter wheel. The filtered light is then divided into 8 channels using a fiber optic bundle. The plate carrier precisely positions each row of 8 wells into the optical path for reading. Light passing through the 8 wells is directed to 8 photo-detectors. The filter wheel moves to a second position to read the 8 wells at a second wavelength. Using bichromatic differential absorbance values corrects for optical imperfections in the plastic wells and removes the effects of meniscus and turbidity.
