To complete our multiplex assay solutions, we complement our portfolio of MILLIPLEX® multiplex kits, instruments, software, and service with BioTek® microplate washers, handheld magnetic separation blocks, and MultiScreen®HTS vacuum manifolds. Explore the advantages of adding these to your multiplex workflow below.
The MultiFlo™ FX microplate washer is an automated multi-mode reagent dispenser for 6- to 1,536-well microplates offering unique Parallel Dispense™ technology from BioTek® equipment. This allows you to dispense up to four independent reagents in parallel without potential carryover. The system offers either the RAD™ technology for random access dispensing to 6- to 384-well plates, or a wash module for 6- to 384-well plate washing—either option replaces up to five liquid handlers. Plus, get fast, intuitive programming and operation via the color touchscreen user interface.

The MultiFlo™ FX Automated Washer is the perfect instrument for MILLIPLEX® 384-well multiplex assays:
In partnership with BioTek® instruments, we offer the latest advancements in multiplex washing - a fully automated system designed to quickly wash an entire plate through magnetic separation and washing. This includes the BioTek® 405™ TS Magnetic 96-Well Washer for magnetic beads. Vacuum filtration accessories can be purchased along with the washer to run filter plates. This model now offers a touch screen and built-in ultrasonic manifold tube cleaning.
The BioTek® 50™ Magnetic 96-Well Strip Washer offers hands-free washing with a small footprint and works seamlessly with MILLIPLEX® magnetic bead assays.

The Handheld Magnetic Separator Block for 96-well flat bottom or conical well plates offers a low-cost alternative to automated washing of MILLIPLEX® magnetic bead-based assays without loss in assay performance. The handheld magnetic separator enables you to remove the liquid contents of the 96-well plate by simply decanting or “flicking” the contents into a sink and blotting off the remainder on a paper towel. Magnetic beads are securely held to the sides by 9 magnets surrounding each well.

The MultiScreen®HTS vacuum manifold is ideal for multiwell filter plate applications in both manual and automated laboratory environments. The manifold supports 96-well and 384-well filter plates for bioassays and deep-well Solvinert™ filter plates for sample preparation. It can be easily configured to support applications that require flow to waste as well as analyte collection.
The system includes a vacuum pressure indicator enabling you to set and reliably measure vacuum pressure. Controls include an external on/off valve and a vacuum level adjustment valve for optimizing filtration performance. You also have the choice of vacuum source options, such as a vacuum pump, available separately, or a house vacuum.
