Non-contact plate washer and liquid dispenser
Increase your workflow with a faster processing time
C.WASH™ is our innovative plate washer designed for automated, rapid and highly reproducible washing of the entire 96-, 384-, and 1536-well plates.
The C.WASH uses centrifugal forces to remove liquids from well plates without needles or pipette tips. Because of these unique properties, C.WASH is the perfect solution for cell-based assays and bead-based nucleic acid purification.
The C.WASH offers a fast and automated liquid removal from entire 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates in seconds.
Features designed to improve efficiency and speed up your workflow
Avoid carryover and cross-contamination thanks to non-contact dispensing and liquid removal
Supports multiple plate sizes
Versatile instrument capable of gently removing liquid from any SBS format, 96- 384- 1536-well plates.
Low residual volume
Unmatched washing efficiency with residual volumes <0.1µl, reduces the number of washing cycles required
Fast and automated
Faster NGS library preparation thanks to magnetic plate carriers
Fully automated and stand alone operation, 1 wash cycle in 96- or 384-well plate <1 min
C.WASH automates all the washing and dispensing steps in a typical screening workflow, making it an essential device for drug discovery or gene editing in HTS environments.
ELISAs are very sensitive immunoassays, therefore cross contamination and/or pipetting inaccuracies may result in high coefficient of variation (CV). The accurate non-contact dispensing limits both cross-contamination and therefore reduce CV. Moreover, the lower residual volume after washing enables a better washing efficiency and reduces the number of washes.
Using beads to clean up DNA has become the gold standard for NGS library preparation. Although it is a quick and easy method, the reduced cost for high throughput sequencing and the popularity of single cell sequencing have considerably increased the sample to be processed. The C.WASH can automate this workflow in both 96 and 384 microplates, thank to our compatible Magnetic plate carriers.
Featuring a residual volume of <0.1 uL/well, C.WASH dramatically reduces the number of wash cycles required and results in faster, more reproducible assays.

C.WASH software was designed with ease of use in mind, its automation saves valuable time.
With an intuitive design and quick access tabs, the C.WASH ensures that you are as efficient as possible. This innovative method of plate washing improves the reproducibility of results, drives down costs, reduces timelines and maximizes overall assay efficiency.
Intuitive – User friendly software
This is the key feature of our system and provides a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace. The intuitive nature of the software allows for guidance through each step of your protocol.
Creation of customized programs
The feature most appreciated by the user allows them to choose a variety of options, including pause time, shaking and decanting and centrifugation time.
Automation friendly software architecture
The well-documented communication via the SiLA2 interface ( Standardization in Laboratory Automation), allows integration with Automation Programming Interface and is compatible with third-party control software.
The C.WASH is SiLA2 compliant, which facilitate its integration in HTS facilities.
Waste system in C.WASH™
Auto switching (internal) for up to 4 liquid input channels, with auto priming function.
The waste is discarded through an active pump, which prevents the clogging of the internal tubing. It also reduces the instrument footprint, as it allows the integration in any lab configuration.
